The Upside Down Art Deco watch will bowl you over! Not literally, though: in fact, it's best to stay upright, because all the numbers are upside down, excepting one: the number indicating the current hour. As soon as the hour changes, the next hour figure turns the right way up, as its
predecessor turns upside down. This means that there are always 11 upside down numbers and one - the current hour - the right way up.
The right-way-up number is made even easier to spot by a black dot (or index) that appears in front of it. The numbers flip instantly at the end of the 59th minute of each hour. Art Deco Upside Down watch has just one hand, indicating the minutes. The seconds are shown on a rotating disc, which is fully set into the dial at the number 6 position. The dial itself comprises a gold base set with feathers, mother of pearl and diamonds. The complex movement is fully assembled at our workshop in Geneva.
