Passion and reason are the watchwords of the creators of Pierre Thomas. Starting with movements that used to be manufactured in the 1870s, they now produce watches with a refined sense of aesthetics, where the apparent simplicity reveals a neo-classical flair, and demonstrates completely mastered technique.
These timepieces, each created individually and hand-finished in the purest spirit of Swiss artisanal watchmaking, combine noble materials, modern comfort, harmony of finishes and a balance between past and present. The blend of hues and materials underlines their desire to respect tradition in their products, with the little added bonus that they are authentic 21st Century creations.
The Montre Historique Grande Seconde watch by Pierre Thomas features a mechanical 19 lines (43.00 mm) movement from the iconic Swiss manufacture Fontainemelon dated about 1870 to 1930.
Made of 18K pink or grey gold, this hand-wound mechanical timepiece is available in 100 pieces numbered and limited series.
