Michel Perchin Model #1 Watch

Michel Perchin presents Model #1, a limited edition watch collection which represents a completely differed direction in watchmaking.

Michel Perchin is a company dedicated to making beautiful and rare “Objet d’Art” using the hand craftsmanship of the finest goldsmiths in the world. The name Michel Perchin comes from the work master of Faberge from 1885 to 1903 who built the Imperial Easter eggs. His special talent was in enameling.

Since first producing writing instrument in 1994, many of which now sell for far more than their original price, it has been a dream to produce a series of limited edition watches.

To realise the Model #1 Watch, the company has partnered with the finest goldsmith in England who will be hand producing the casework and dials to the designs of Patrick Pinkston.

The case work is then combined with a quality Swiss movement with assemble in the USA by a highly skilled watchmaker who completes the calibration and testing of each watch. Because of the quality of the craft Michel Perchin produces a small number of watches.

Michel Perchin is owned and managed by Patrick Pinkston who also is the designer of each watch. Mr. Pinkston has a history of success in various fields including healthcare and writing instruments.
