Art and manner!

There is a fine line between art and watchmaking, as some decorative dials verge on artistic perfection. Just follow our guide!


From all angles

The watchmaker and French sculptor Richard Orlinski continue their partnership with the Classic Fusion Orlinski Bracelet series, a four-watch collection characterised by a new metal bracelet. The 83-piece titanium bracelet takes up the facets of the artist’s famous sculptures.

Chez Raynal, Aix-en-Provence


Tribute watch

Nothing supports the enamelled miniature reproduction of Japan’s most famous 19th-century artist’s painting, The Amida Waterfall in the Province of Kiso, better than the case back of the Reverso Tribute Enamel Hokusai Amida Falls.  A handwork masterpiece!

Chez Frojo, Marseille

Year of the Tiger

The Classico Tiger watch in pink gold, produced in a limited edition of 88 pieces (a reference to the lucky Chinese number), celebrates the tiger in the Chinese zodiac. A motif as background décor was created using age-old traditional enamelling techniques.

Chez Frojo, Marseille



Code name: Defy Extreme Felipe Pantone. The fruit of a collaboration between the Swiss company and a Valencia-based artist known for his work on colour and op-art, this watch stands out for its colours: translucent blue on the pushbuttons and bezel and a perfect rainbow of metallic colours on the hands.
