The Portes du Temps watches are above all objects that take up the inter-temporal and intercultural codes of architecture. These jewels, of high jewelry, retrace the history of human evolution over the ages and underline the primary goal of the watchmaker: to have time at hand.
I have always been fascinated by the different civilizations that have passed through time, I made this watch to retrace their history, their evolution through a simple architecture: the doors. I placed at each corner a Doric capital and I built around the dial the doors that man has built since he settled.
Each has its own history and architectural features:
- The Doric Columns
- The Roman Gate
- The Gate of the Incas
- Round Chinese Door
The back of the dial is also a well-known mystical architectural reference with the labyrinth that refers to ancient Greece and the Minotaur. The dial is made of ivory of mammoth, a species that disappeared from the surface of the Earth at the time when men became sedentary.
The Portes du Temps watches are unique works and collectors, each model is limited to 25 copies
