Mechanical watches have fascinated me since my early childhood. The special and memorable characteristics of watches would reveal something about the owner’s character to me.

Many years later, when I was working for Audemars Piguet, I realized that the well- established brands were overrepresented. This had led to a fatigue among watch owners. If everyone was wearing the same brand, how could individualists possibly be expected to identify themselves with the brand? What did the watch say about you?

I began a quest for the unique and found the jump hour. It was memorable, elegant and yet, it had a long tradition – dating back to 1883.

A jump away from the mainstream. Time to be different.
