Nuage

£ 345

Nuage is a dream-like watch, designed to make you fall in love with time keeping.

This watch is hand crafted in London and gilded with 22 carat gold and palladium.

The stunning Nuage was designed by French Verre Églomisé artist, Marion Labbez.

The gilding process makes each watch slightly different. This means that you’ll always get a completely unique, handmade watch.

How to read the time

You track the time by checking the position of the sun or moon in the sky. The crescent represents 12 hours with the time running from left to right.

At 6am the sun rises on the left, it reaches the apex of the crescent at midday, then continues until it reaches the last marker on the right at 6pm.

After 6pm the sun sets while the moon rises on the left, the position of the moon therefore marks the hours from 6pm until 6am.

The minutes hand is in the centre, this runs in the conventional way.

Marion Labbez is an expert craftswoman. She uses traditional Verre Églomisé techniques to transform everyday surfaces such as mirrors and walls into beautiful pieces of artwork.

Marion explains the design:

"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."

Shipping guide for t-shirts

Our t-shirts are printed by us and shipped from our workshop in London. This means if you place an order for both a watch and t-shirt(s), they will be shipped together via an express service. Delivery times for these can be found here.

If you order a t-shirt without a watch, it will be shipped via a Royal Mail tracked service which usually takes a little longer. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.

Shipping guide for watch straps

If purchased separately from your watch, watch straps will be shipped with Royal Mail 1st Class / International tracked shipping.

This takes 2-14 working days depending on location. You can see a more accurate timescale when you input your address at the checkout.

Please note, during busy sale periods dispatch may take a little longer (this is quite rare).

These delivery times are a guide based on the carriers terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
