The Chapter Two collection features an instantaneous big date triple calendar that, thanks to innovative high precision cylinder indications is the world’s most legible calendar wristwatch, as well as the world’s first unabbreviated triple calendar mechanical wristwatch!
A Collection encapsulating character and innovation
The long flowing lines of the distinctive tonneau case belie its complex architecture and sophisticated design. Myriad thoughtful details and sagacious finishes catch the light. Every aspect of the timepiece has been meticulously refined.
A ground-breaking movement
Chapter Two’s technically groundbreaking movement was developed in Maîtres du Temps – Atelier d’Horlogerie. It was extensively tested, refined, and decorated until the timepiece satisfied the most exigent standards. In particular, the mechanism for driving the cylinders demanded significant technical and inventive reflection to obtain the most efficient and reliable system possible. The fact that the big date and both cylinders change instantaneously bears testament to the success of their innovative design and high-precision manufacture.
Maîtres du Temps
Picture the world’s most exclusive atelier which would create the most unparalleled masterpieces that synthesize the traditional crafts of haute horlogerie with the artistry of today’s foremost horological visions.
Each chapter in the Maîtres du Temps story is a symbiosis of experience, influence, art, craft, and technique, all harmoniously encapsulated in a single watch.
The symbol chosen for Maîtres du Temps—a tree with innumerable branches—reflects the fertile nature of the brand’s creative process. The image of the tree represents the evolution of Maîtres du Temps through the passage of time, with each branch representing a new collaboration, a new meeting of hearts and minds, and bearing astonishing timepieces.
The level of technical and design sophistication achieved by Maîtres du Temps has rarely been seen in watchmaking. It is the result of the right combination of people sharing a bold vision. “We do it by not accepting second best and by constantly designing and re-designing,” says Steven Holtzman, the driving force behind Maîtres du Temps.
“We are continually faced with different choices, and the decision each time is to not compromise on quality, finish, or design. In this way, Maîtres du Temps is able to offer remarkable timepieces crafted by remarkable people.” “When I see someone wearing a Maîtres du Temps watch, I feel proud and happy. This is ultimately the only genuine sign that everything we do actually has a purpose.”
