Maîtres du Temps – Chapter Two
During Baselworld I had a gathering with Maîtres du Temps . After a warm welcome, Margaret Pane (VP of Maîtres du Temps) showed us the film that was made for Chapter Two. I can truly recommend watching this film (around 10 minutes) as it truly catches the quintessence of this coordinated effort of the best personalities of current watchmaking. The film has a few subtleties that the connaisseur will quickly comprehend. Like the hands of the congregation clock, these help me to remember the hands of the Speake-Marin Picadilly.
After having seen the film mr. Steven Holzman, the originator and CEO of Maîtres du Temps, showed us the new show-stopper, Chapter Two. The three expert watchmakers who are responsable for Chapter Two are mr. Daniel Roth, mr. Peter Speake-Marin and mr. Roger Dubuis. Part Two has a 18K red gold instance of 42mm wide, 58mm from one haul to another and is 18mm thick. It highlights 6 distinctive sapphire gems with hostile to reflection covering, three situated at the front to show the fundamental dial, the day and the month. The other three are situated at the caseback and uncover a dazzling development and lovely rotor.
At the silver dial with wonderful sun-beam guilloche example and roman numbers on a white part ring, time is shown by 18K red gold hands. At the 6 o’clock position a little seconds subdial is found and at 12 you can see the enormous date. Above and beneath the dial, day and month are made noticeable by two rollers. To acquire the rollers to change right away, the entire component for driving the rollers was re-planned. Section Two currently includes an immediate changing enormous date, day and month!
While Chapter One was restricted to just 50 pieces and cost at around $400,000 the new Chapter Two will be more available. The primary year Mr. Holzman hopes to deliver 200 pieces and with a cost of around $67,000 it will likewise arrive at various kind of customer.
The pivotal turning point was there, when mr. Holzman acquainted us with mr. Daniel Roth and mr. Roger Dubuis, as I would like to think two legends in the watchmaking scene. The third maitre du temps, mr. Peter Speake-Marin, was absent around then yet I talked with him later in The Watch Factory about his own new development and obviously the cooperation with these two legendairy ace watchmakers. For me it was an honor to meet mr. Dubuis and mr. Roth and talk with them about Chapter Two. The two men conversed with enthusiasm about their creation and working together.
When I inquired as to whether they mastered something of the colaboration with the a lot more youthful Peter Speake-Marin, they both said that Peter’s drive and center was noteworthy, just as his specialized knowledge.
