BORN FROM WITHIN THE FABRIC OF SPACETIME, CRYSTALISED ON EARTH AND CRAFTED FOR OUTER SPACE TRAVEL
in 2011 Vianney Halter began to develop a new concept, inspired by a new world. A world made of all the influences he received from reading scientific magazines, Sci-Fi novels and watching tv series/movies about travels through space. He had in mind subliminal images and he wanted to make something from this.
Exploration of strange new worlds and civilizations has, at all time, held a great fascination and driven mankind. The marine chronometer was the ultimate time instrument that made possible explorations of the seas and kept the link with home port for sailors of antiquity.
Space is now the final frontier, what would be the ultimate time instrument necessary when the mission is to boldly go where no man has gone before?
Any human floating in space is lost, just as mariners were lost exploring the open oceans. In space, due to the low gravity, there is no top, no down, no depth anymore, perception of position and time passing by becomes confused.
In 2013 the watch-maker presented his new time instrument: the Deep Space Tourbillon.
A four-dimension representation of the universe, presented in a huge central 3 axis tourbillon surrounded by the display of time as a reminder of his familiar reference frame while on earth: length, width, height…. and time. Two curved hands lean from the watch periphery and spread above the tourbillon and the solid engraved silver ring. A 40,6 mm diameter sapphire crystal dome crowns a circular titanium case to highlight the tourbillon in all of its details.
The revolution times of the 3 axis of the tourbillon are respectively 40 sec, 6 min and 30min. Due to these desynchronized revolution speeds, the tourbillon moves in a never-ending ballet, every second showing a different point of view into the depths of the graceful mechanism.
