The Swiss haute-horlogerie brand KERBEDANZ has created a special, limited edition timepiece paying tribute to the aesthetics of the Armenian Alphabet. One of these timepieces is now a part of rich collections of the Vatican Museums.
The Swiss high end watch brand and its management have been received by His Holiness Pope François following a demand for a private audience for the presentation of this very special gift. The use of the Armenian alphabet, whose unique aesthetic is a mixture of curves and entangled angles, replaces advantageously any form of index. This mysterious writing, invented by the monk Mesrop Mashtots in 405 AD, is still in use today.
