V - MATIC Chronograph - Design :
Hannes Wettstein's extensive research on the
classic chronograph was the basis of the concept of
the V-MATIC , to replace fashion-ornaments with
bold architecture and to give to the dial its original
function as a measuring instrument.-
Enhanced by the cool color of the titanium-case,
the magnificently elaborate mechanical movement
remains the only acceptable 'decorative element'.
The centre-hub covers the 'messy' gathering of
hands, leaving the dial free of any disturbance.

UHR 1 / UHR 2
Günter Wermekes is known as a brilliant jewelry designer, a goldsmith
by profession, - the material he has adopted as 'his' precious metal is
stainless steel , mostly in combination with diamonds.-
Fascinated by the purity of steel, Günter Wermekes knows how to work
with it like few others.- Technical complexity is used to achieve deceiving
simplicity. His objects reflect the material's strength and provide an
impression of finality.-
'Uhr 1' (round) and 'Uhr 2' (rectangular) are indentically construced,
most of the components are interchangeable. Both models have a
scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and are waterproof to 30 m.
'Uhr 1' is also available in a larger size with a self-winding mechanical
movement and date.
FLEMMING BO HANSEN
'Simplicity by elemination' is a credo of F.B. Hansen.-
His work is based strictly on functionality.
'FLAT' is an outstanding example for this philosophy -
an object of amazing architecture.-
Precision-crafted in a high grade steel, 'FLAT' is
available in a large and a small version.
'WATCH' was designed in 1989 and the first production
started 1990 at a time, when digital time-pieces were
totally out of fashion. Hansen's 'Watch' soon became
legendary - no other wristwatch has ever received as
many international design awards. Leading Museums
such as the Museum of Modern Art have selected
'Watch' for their contemporary design collections.
'Watch' is available in two basic versions, with a water
repellant calfskin leather strap or with a stainless steel
solid link bracelet. - Limited special editions in 18K
gold, platinium, tungsten carbide, titanium (left side)
etc. are made from time to time.
|- 'Watch' and 'Flat' have a display that is protected by a scratchproof sapphire crystal and they are water resistant to 30 meters. -|
