Vingt-8 Isogone square
Here is a watch that challenges our idea of how time
is displayed. What was once a familiar reflex now demands reflection. The
principle behind the Vingt-8 Isogone is simple yet complex. On each hour, the
hour and minute hands overlap; on each half-hour, they are opposite each other.
The minute circle turns at the same rate as the hour hand to show the time. The
angle between the hands is always the same, regardless of the time. Their
position in relation to each other is always according to the minutes, again
whatever time it is. If you wear a watch out of pure necessity, the Vingt-8
Isogone is not for you. For you other dreamers, as well as inviting a more
considered relationship with time, it is also a chance to appreciate the subtle
beauty of the hand-guilloché dial in silver.
