The ‘Smart PDG Watch’ developed by Luxius Suisse, represents a truly unique and innovative watch, which combines future technology with traditional watch craftsmanship. An esquire fusion, symbol of performant luxury, the ‘Smart PDG Watch’ symbolizes the two things which never stop: the Time and the news of the World.
The ‘Smart PDG Watch’ is a hybrid watch with two interchangeable watch cases and two time dials, indicating the present time and the time of another time zone.
The first watch case contains a full blown Swiss manual winding, mechanical tourbillon movement with a balance frequency of 28,800 a/h (4 Hz) and a power reserve of 48 hours, containing 21 jewels. The dial face is in anthracite nacre with émail finishing and a mozaic of lines is pointing to the center of the universe of time, where the hands in 18 carat white gold are attached, indicating the present time. A crown with a red ruby, reminding the center of the tourbillon, is situated on the left hand side of the mechanical watch case. The skeleton tourbillon movement contains an escapement symbolizing a little plankton fish, swimming in a little pond, representing Lake Leman, in the middle of a big oval ocean.
The second, interchangeable watch case integrates a connected smart watch movement, with a digital dial face, reminding the image of the mechanical tourbillon, with in the bottom part a notification screen, streaming real time world news messages. On the round bezel time indications have been engraved by hand as well as on the 12 o’clock mark the model name ‘PDG’.
The metal bracelet with a foldable buckle, contains in a mechanical movement and an anthracite dial with email finishing, reproducing the design codes of the round tourbillon dial, showing the hour in a second time zone. This automatic mechanical movement, is based in a watch case of 22 mm long, 9 mm high and 5 mm deep, and is therefore probably one of the smallest ever developed in Switzerland.
Since ‘Performant Luxury’ is ‘Timeless’, the technology of the connected intelligent watch movement can be upgraded online anytime.
