Geneva based watch brand Altanus celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, and commemorates this unique occasion with a limited-edition collection of one hundred pieces, which it has named Sculpture.
The watch houses a delicately skeletonised hand-winding movement, with contemporary accents introduced into this mechanical lace. Lifted by the transparency played out both on the dial side and by the sapphire back, this architectural composition invites us to contemplate its intricate mechanism, the legacy of one hundred years of watchmaking tradition, by Altanus.
The Sculpture watch comes in three versions: steel, steel with pink gold PVD treatment, or steel with anthracite PVD treatment.
