Enigmatic Helios ‘Solar deity’ timepiece by Frédéric Jouvenot

Enigmatic Helios ‘Solar deity’ timepiece by Frédéric Jouvenot
frdric jouvenot helios watch Winner of the first Geneva Time Exhibition Superwatch Award 2011, the awe-inspiring Helios watch by Frédéric Jouvenot pays tribute to the cult of the sun in the ancient world. The enigmatic timepiece represents each hour by a radioconcentric sunbeam. The 12 sunbeams are designed on the dial in the sectors of a classic display. For the minutes, they are displayed in a central moon with an index that makes one revolution per hour. The dial of the Helios timepiece follows the passage of the sun. At noon, all rays blaze brilliantly, and the design represents the sun at its peak. As time passes by, each sunbeam gets replaced by a moonbeam. Twelve dark segments symbolize the midnight. The darkness of the face reveals the central area with an opening, which resembles the moon. The Helios is part of Jouvenot’s Solar Deity collection and has two faces, referring to day and night cycles. The stunning watch with jumping heliocentric display features hour display without discs, a disk turning in the center of the watch for minutes, high-quality presentation box and an alligator leather wrist strap. The watchcase comes crafted in either white or pink gold or highly resilient Titanium DLC. Hit the jump to see the Helios in action. Via: Tuvie
