Cased in 18k white gold, this timepiece combines simplicity, purity and an exceptional standard of decoration on all parts of the movement. This piece possesses a handmade in house movement based on a vintage Cyma calibre from the 1950’s that is entirely reworked and decorated by hand.
Through making his own balance wheel and bridge by hand from scratch (diameter 13.30 mm), Raúl Pagès aspires to rediscover the elegance of the large balance wheels found in high end pocket watches from the 19th century.
The black onyx dial with refined, handmade 18k white gold indexes and hardened steel hands gives the timepiece a contemporary, elegant look, inspired by the sophisticated style of the Art Deco era. The black frosted finish of the main plate contrasts beautifully with the hand polished angles, marrying tradition and modernity.
With this timeless hand-wound watch, Raúl Pagès evokes the concept and style of the quintessential gentleman of the 21st century. His philosophy and values derive from the elegance of historical masterpieces that he restores daily, creating the perfect balance between proportion, technical prowess and ancestral craftsmanship.
With this creation, Raúl Pagès returns to the roots of Swiss watchmaking heritage using traditional watchmaking methods and tools. This results in a unique and expertly crafted timepiece encompassing the skill and mastery of watchmaking in its purest form.
