Issued in a limited edition, the new Frederic Jouvenot watch boggles the public’s imagination with its ability to display time without traditional hands, numbers or discs. The novelty owes its name to the sunbeam design of its hour display.
The unconventional dial is equipped with 12 radio-concentric, three-dimensional rays, which serve to mark the path of the sun and the day/night cycle. The moment, the sun is at its zenith, that is at midday, all the sunbeams turn gold, thus representing a full daylight. With the time passing, the sunbeams change their color from gold to black, meaning the day gradually becomes night. The watch face also comprises a central disc, which performs a function of a minute indicator.
Giving life to the functions, provided by the new Frederic Jouvenot Solar Deity watch, is a manually-wound movement. Embellished with 42 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The caliber incorporates a balance with bi-metallic screws, Cotes de Geneve bridges as well as a ratchet-wheel with a polished ridge. The power reserve, supplied by this mechanism, is equal to 45 hours.
The case also boasts top and bottom sapphire crystals. Its construction is 50-meter water-resistant. Adding the final note of harmony is a black alligator leather strap, finalized by a titanium folding clasp.
The mind-blowing timepiece can be also set in an 18K pink gold case. It carries a bezel, embossed with Inca engraving. The latter frames a mesmerizing dial, equipped with three-dimensional pyramids.
The new Frederic Jouvenot watch forgoes the conventional in favor of originality, which definitely rhymes with success.
