Frederic Jouvenot

Frédéric Jouvenot boasts of a watchmaking career which has been both rich and unwavering. After working for Minerva, and founding the movement development company Concepto, he launched his own watchmaking company. His signature collection was launched in 2010. This watch tells the time without conventional hands, numbers or discs. Instead, it is a mechanical sundial with 24 jumping hours. Each ray displays two sides which make an instantaneous half-turn every hour to indicate the day or night time. At midday, when the sun is at its zenith, all the sunbeams are golden to represent full daylight. As time passes, the sunbeams turn black one by one as day moves towards night. All the models are named after a god, like the Helios, which won the GTE 2011 Superwatch Award, or the Inti. A revolutionary, avant-garde timepiece offered in a limited edition.
