Founded by Rexhep Rexhepi, Independent luxury swiss watch brand AKRIVIA presents a unique timepiece to support the Only Watch 2021 Charity auction.
RRCCII stands for Rexhep Rexhepi Chronomètre Contemporain II. It is the successor of the AKRIVIA Chronomètre Contemporain. The new Chronomètre Contemporain II watch preserves the style of the original model, but with an entirely new calibre featuring an additional complication.
Both the dial and movement of the RRCCII retain the distinctive aesthetics of the original, but it was constructed from the ground up as a completely new timepiece. The dedication to quality means that one element of the RRCCII “Only Watch” remains unchanged. Made up of 14 components, the platinum case has been hand made by the legendary Jean-Pierre Hagmann.
Having retired in 2017 after some five decades as an artisanal case maker who supplied the very best brands, Jean-Pierre picked up his tools once again in 2019 to join Akrivia, with his first creation being the case for that year’s RRCC “Only Watch”. For Only Watch 2021, Jean-Pierre fabricated the RRCCII case by hand, including soldering each of the elegantly arched lugs to the case band, one of which bears his “JHP” hallmark.
The unique, layered enamel dial is first finished in opaque, grand feu enamel, and then in champagne-hued, translucent flinque enamel.
Each Chronomètre Contemporain II timepiece will be certified by the Besançon observatory – while being elegantly executed to highest possible quality in finishing and construction.
The owner of the unique RRCCII timepiece will be invited to discover and visit the Besançon Astronomical Observatory.
