Never has a watch looked so much like a sundial, nor so cool for it. Christophe Claret has constructed this piece in tribute to the eponymous ancient capital of Roman Helvetia, an ancient region of Europe located between the Alps and the Jura mountains in the West of what is now modern Switzerland, drawing design inspiration from different facets of Roman art. The oscillating weight, for example, is decorated with five racing chariots. Many treasures have been excavated from the site since it was discovered, one of which was a solid gold bust of Marcus Aurelius, the famed Roman emperor. You can see it here: a towering replica 3mm high found at the centre of the dial magically magnified using a mirascope. That’s right, a mirascope, a smoke and mirrors trick so clever that it makes the bust appear twice its actual size. Two parabolic mirrors are stacked up with a hole in the centre of the uppermost and the object placed on the bottom. Reflected light makes the bust appear to project from the watch like a hologram. Red Dwarf eat your heart out! Available in pink gold, of course, (limited to 68 pieces) and white gold (38 pieces).
