La Montre à tact “Poker” by Anderesen Geneve was unveiled at Basel world 2008. This exceptional watch allows the wearer to read time on a tactful way without moving his wrist thanks to the time indicator laced between the attaches at “6 o’clock”. Thus, its front-plate is free from any hands and a perfect place for unlimited personalisation according to the artist’s imagination or the customer’s wishes, and this as unique item.
This time, the Montre à tact got caught up in the game of poker showing a miniature painting inspired by “A Bold Bluff”, a picture painted by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge, an American artist of the Belle Epoque, who between 1903 and 1910 had created 16 oil-paintings of dogs in human poses, nine of them depicting dogs playing poker.
In the window, six time indications have been replaced by the following showdowns:
- 2 o’clock = Four of a kind
- 4 o’clock = Quint flush
- 6 o’clock = Flush
- 8 o’clock = Quint
- 10 o’clock = Full
- 12 o’clock = Quint flush royal
