First inspiration of this watch is the art of the Manga, a particular Japanese comic style that goes back to the 1860s. Second inspiration comes from the Switzerland’s own Heidi and Peter, the leading characters of children’s fiction published in 1881 by Swiss author Johanna Spyri.
The mixture of cultures, the richness of exchanges, the alchemy of a subtle combination of lifestyles, tastes and points of view that inspired independent luxury Swiss watch brand CLAUDE MEYLAN. In this new watch collection, CLAUDE MEYLAN associates two currents of the same era in a modern and humorous interpretation of a universal romance.
By associating cultures and know-how, CLAUDE MEYLAN revisits the spirit of erotic watches. First and next to the open work of the decorated mechanical movement, a superposition of cut and painted dials represent the subjects of our MANGA’CH adventure. Drawings are lively and powerful, the rendering is subtle and suggestive.
Once the piece is on hand, we instinctively turn it over to discover a scene that transports us to a non-feigned eroticism. The drawing is affixed on three different levels and its three-dimensionality encourages us to enjoy and dream. Represented in black and white, faithful to the Manga signature, the strength of the scene awakens our senses and our imagination.
