MENINTIME Le Paon

Swiss watch brand MENINTIME presents its debut watch model, Le Paon. Founded by Vincent Rouillard, the brand will be displaying its watch collection at the Basel-world 2019 exhibition in Switzerland.

Le Paon (French for ‘peacock’) stems from lengthy research, development along with fine craftsmanship exercised by artisan watchmakers. This timepiece is the concrete expression of the object imagined and sketched by the designer and brand CEO: an understated and contemporary piece of jewellery for men.

Entirely conceived in the mind of MENINTIME’s founder, Vincent Rouillard, each element is meticulously crafted and then assembled by the finest watchmakers in La Chaux-de-Fonds to give life to Le Paon. Equipped with a sturdy and accurate Swiss made self-winding movement, this men’s watch represents a new choice on the watch market. In presenting a holistic oval-type design seamlessly merging case and bracelet, Vincent Rouillard is keenly aware that the uniqueness and singularity of this creation are essential.

A timepiece driven by a mechanical self-winding ETA 2895-2 movement with a 42-hour power reserve, Le Paon is a worthy representative of MENINTIME. Featuring a rare design, the stainless steel case measuring 38mm x 37.3mm x 9.3mm stands out from the crowd while asserting its personality.

Displaying the hours, minutes, small seconds and date, Le Paon is available in nine different dial colours : silver-toned, champagne, rosé champagne, anthracite grey, blue, black, green, red and midnight blue. The stainless steel case topped by a sapphire crystal merges smoothly into the interchangeable bracelet, thus enabling each wearer to opt for their personal preference.
