LeDIX Origine

With the LeDix Origin, the mobile phone has become an art object that has put emotion back into communicating. The first creation from Celsius X VI II following 4 years of research and development, this resolutely new object, made from titanium and enhanced with solid ebony inserts, has just what it takes to appeal to the most demanding of watch enthusiasts. The contemporary case, which focuses on transparency, houses a haute horlogerie mechanical movement with an off-centre flying tourbillon. Each time you open the phone, the patented “Remontage Papillon” (butterfly winding hinge) makes a characteristic clicking sound as the energy is transmitted to the watch mechanism. Presented with an ecosystem of accessories - docking station, hands-free kit, etc - the LeDix has met technological challenges while focussing on simplicity and durability. The LeDix Origin is limited to 18 pieces in grade 5 titanium with ebony inserts.
