Nuage shows the time based on the position of a gilded sun or moon in the sky. The position of the sun and moon represents the hour, the minutes and seconds are shown together in the centre dial.
This beautiful watch was designed for us by Marion Labbez. Marion hand crafted each watch herself - she personally gilded the glass with 22 carat gold leaf and Palladium leaf to create the two tones on the glass.
Marion explains the design, "I wanted to add depth to the design, so we used tempered carbon steel to create the iridescence of the blue sky. Carbon steel, when it’s heated to around 300 degrees turns to a rich blue. The sun and the moon were gilded like the glass, the way the light reflects off them makes them appear to float above the sky .
“Nuage is a companion piece to Chinoiserie which I previously designed for Mr Jones Watches. Both these watches show an exotic dream-like landscape, a playful contrast with the fixed nature of time telling. The gilding process means that each watch has a slightly different appearance, so every one has it’s own unique personality.”
Nuage is produced in our London workshop, it is released in a numbered edition of 100 pieces, with each watch numbered on the back of the case.
