Box and Operating Instructions.
“Maîtres du Temps is not so much a new watch company as an entirely new horological concept. Founded by Mr Steven Holtzman, it brings groups of master watchmakers together to develop exclusive timepieces.
It is a conscious effort to promote the people who actually craft the timepieces. By providing them the opportunity to work together Maîtres du Temps harnesses their incredible talent.
The level of technical and design sophistication achieved by Maîtres du Temps has rarely been seen in watchmaking and is the result of the right combination of people sharing a bold vision.”
A collaboration between Peter Speake-Marin, Roger Dubuis & Daniel Roth produced the CHAPTER TWO time-piece ….
“To obtain the most efficient and reliable system possible for Chapter Two’s groundbreaking movement, the mechanism for driving the rollers demanded a novel solution. The instantaneous change of both date and both rollers attests to the success of the new design.
Chapter Two features hours and minutes indicated by diamond-cut, solid gold hands, with seconds at 6 o’clock, date at 12 o’clock, and day and month spelled out on their respective rollers. The combination boasts legibility unprecedented in a triple-calendar wristwatch.
Chapter Two’s tonneau case shape belies its complex architecture through the pure visual harmony of its form: the curves of the lugs match the flow of the case, while the day, date, and month correctors are engraved with their functions for operational clarity. Six anti-reflective sapphire crystals—three on the front and three on the caseback—provide unmatched visual access to both the indications and movement.”
