Hello Watch Friends, Thought I would take a moment to introduce a unique watch that I recently taken some time to learn more about. ?Ç¬Officially presented to the media and the public in January 2009, the innovative design and eye-catching appeal of the Automatic Chronograph Evolution bears the namesake a creative young watch maker named Fr?É¬©der?É¬©ric Jouvenot – himself a mere 32 years old! ?Ç¬Most unique about the watch is that the watch rotor, which typically appears on the back side of a watch, has been engineered to appear on the front / dial side. ?Ç¬Take a closer look for yourself in the photos below, and don’t miss the video below that Mr. Jouvenot himself was kind enough to share with me!
The face leaves little doubt as to the watch?¢Ç¨Ñ¢s equally inventive and ingenious intentions
Whether resting upside-down on a table or in reading mode, the chronograph?¢Ç¨Ñ¢s two registers always perfectly bisect ?Ç¬the rotor?¢Ç¨Ñ¢s curves.
This video was sent to Perpetuelle.com directly from Mr. Fr?É¬©d?É¬©ric Jouvenot himself (thanks Fr?É¬©d?É¬©ric!) and I am pleased to share it with you here:
The collection is limited to 88 pieces in both white and pink gold
I am surely looking forward to what comes next from Frederic Jouvenot! ?Ç¬Learn more at http://www.fjouvenot.com/cms/
