Pontos Décentrique Phases de Lune

A combination of mechanics and architecture, the Pontos Décentrique Phases de Lune liberates time from orthodoxy. In a theatre of bold innovations, the first scene is acted out at 10 o’clock on an off-centre dial, where a new and unique single hand tracks the minutes, while the dragging hours appear at a more leisurely pace on a disk. In the second scene, two superposed disks at 4 o’clock show the phases of the moon and indicate day and night. The final scene, perhaps the grandest of them all, takes place at 6 o’clock: the date is clearly shown in a metallised sapphire crystal window on a disk whose patented return system has been specially developed in-house. Series limited to 500.
