In homage to the fearless Captain Nemo, this watch shows the dramatic attack of the giant squid from 20,000 leagues under the sea ("Vingt mille lieues sous les mers" in the original title). The endless battle between squid and man depicts the time, from hour to hour each appears to be gaining the upper hand. The two men being held by the squid indicate the hours and minutes.
The winding crown of this watch is specially signed with Captain Nemo's initial "N".
Vingt Mille was designed for us by award winning designer and illustrator Fanny Shorter. She produced two designs for us inspired by the adventure stories of Jules Verne - Vingt Mille and Tour Du Monde. She created the original artwork in pen and ink and we reduced it down to the micro scale of the watch face.
