B-side offers a fascinating journey throughout space and time. This avant-gardist concept who offers a new interpretation of the watch by highlighting the hidden side of time, is manufactured in titanium. Discovered in 1791, the titanium is a ultralight high mechanical strength metal. It is one of the most biocompatible material, with the gold and platinum. Because of the quality of its composition, it is increasingly used in industry and in particular the automotive industry, as well as geothermal and biomedical technology. As for “The star of the show” Antoine Preziuso uses a tourbillon movement Caliber APG/28T Black Gold, fully decorated and engraved by hand, in a limited series. Each movement will be a unique interpretation.
The watch, as we know, is one of the few jewels of the man and it is in this aspect that B-side will be given first and foremost . Its aesthetic “overwhelming” expresses a different approach to life, the question of the time display is secondary – nowadays time is recalled in all objects of our everyday life: cell phones, computers and so on. Too often hidden, the movement becomes the main player in this staging. And when the owner could not resist a peek at the indication of time passing, pressing simple on secret pusher, offers an astonishing transformation. The watch opens, unfolds and turns without leaving the wrist. The traditional face with hands is revealed.
