SINCE time doesn’t stand still, neither should your watch.
Swiss brand GENUS has come up with some bold, moving watches that will amaze you with their technical wizardry. From dragons sweeping across the dial to patterns snaking around the face, it’s all very complicated and complex manipulations of time.
Never mind if you’ll have to spend some time to figure out the actual time, that’s beside the point.
What better way to while away the hours than playing with your S$200K+ watch; surely a timely investment.
Rose gold, white gold and titanium are the precious metals in play, along with forging methods that are intricate as they are time consuming and exacting.
The GNS timekeeping mechanism took 10 years to be dreamed up and a further 3 to be realised. But the investment of time, energy, thought and money has paid off.
In its first year, the brand’s co-founders Sebastien Billieres and Catherine Henry walked off with the Mechanical Exception Prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve (GPHG) competition for the GNS 1.2 WG.
And now the GENUS DRAGON has arrived.
If you’d like to tame this dragon, you can also craft your own mythical beast in your own colours. Each piece of the GENUS range is bespoke, customisable to the wearer’s desire.
This passage of time is patented as this is the first articulated dragon to express time in this fashion.
