Manual winding movement with hours, minutes, seconds chronometer featuring hacking seconds, automatic zero reset. 100/h power reserve for one barrel.
For Only Watch 2019, Rexhep Rexhepi has created an exclusive piece based on the Chronomètre Contemporain, the first watch signed with his name. Inspired by the officer's watches of the 1940's with their sleek lines combined with a dedication to accuracy and readability, this watch is officially chronometer certified by the Besançon Observatory.
The Chronomètre Contemporain has a manual winding hour, minute and seconds movement featuring hacking seconds and automatic zero reset. Its unique dial, created especially for Only Watch, has a hand hammered dial, a key part of the work in atelier AkriviA. The exclusive blue grey color of the multi layered grand feu enamel offers a delicate color that stands in perfect contrast with the white enamel of the numerals. Additionally, the case of this distinctive timepiece has been created by the renowned artisan Mr. Jean-Pierre Hagmann of Geneva.
The in-house movement is fully embellished with handmade, traditional finishing techniques such as anglage, black polish and Côtes de Genève. Its symmetrical architecture is one of the signature aspects of Rexhep Rexhepi's caliber designs. In November 2018, the Chronomètre Contemporain was awarded the GPHG's Prize in the Men’s Category.
Atelier AkriviA was created by Rexhep Rexhepi in 2012 to express his own vision of Haute Horlogerie. His main ambition is to synthesize a contemporary style with traditional and artisanal watchmaking methods. Rexhep Rexhepi: "It is an honor for us to participate with the other brands in this project. I am proud to create a watch of which the proceeds will be utilized for important scientific research.
