For Only Watch 2019 Charity auction, AKRIVIA, the independent Swiss luxury watch brand established by Rexhep Rexhepi, has created an exclusive piece based on the Chronomètre Contemporain, the first watch signed with his name. Inspired by the officer’s watches of the 1940’s with their sleek lines combined with a dedication to accuracy and readability, this watch is officially chronometer certified by the Besançon Observatory.
The Chronomètre Contemporain is equipped with a manual winding movement featuring hacking seconds and automatic zero reset. Created especially for Only Watch, this unique timepiece features a hand hammered dial, a key part of the work in atelier AkriviA. The blue grey color of the multi layered grand feu enamel dial stands in perfect contrast with the white enamel of the numerals. This timepiece has a 38mm platinum case created by the renowned artisan Mr. Jean-Pierre Hagmann of Geneva.
The in-house movement is fully embellished with handmade, traditional finishing techniques such as anglage, black polish and Côtes de Genève. Its symmetrical architecture is one of the signature aspects of Rexhep Rexhepi’s caliber designs. In November 2018, the Chronomètre Contemporain was awarded the GPHG’s Prize in the Men’s Category.
