For ONLYWATCH 2017 charity auction, Independent luxury Swiss watch atelier ANDERSEN Genève has created its first bi-colour “Tempus Terrae” with a White gold bezel, a Red gold case and a White gold hunter case back. Bi-colour cases are part of the unique collection “Montre à Tact” for more than 20 years.
This “one off” creation has been manufactured with emblematic “broken lugs” and two crowns for the “Tempus Terrae 25th Anniversary”. The rotor of the movement and the centre of the dial are made of exclusive 21ct “BlueGold” with hand guilloché “Tapisserie” texture. Brushed “A” shaped Andersen hands remain as discreet as possible though give a clear visibility of time.
As an additional refinement the “Andersen Genève” logo was removed from the centre of the dial and replaced by the “A” logo above MONACO. The “A” logo also defines the crown to set the time. The second crown to set Timezones has the “TT Tempus Terrae” logo.
