The Peak Selections: Timepieces - - The Brief -

Back in 2012, Swiss watch­maker Haldimann fit­ted the H9 Re­duc­tion with a func­tion­ing time­keep­ing mech­a­nism – then hid the dial behind an opaque, all-black sap­phire crys­tal. You could hear the watch tick away if you lis­tened closely, but you could not tell the time. The idea was for wear­ers to “imagine, dream or in­vent” their own time. Of course, for the lux­ury of do­ing that, you had to stump up US$160,000.
