The watchmaking brand David Van Heim has just brought the celebrated complication within everyone’s grasp. It has to be said, for its aesthetic refinements and subtlety of finish, the T1 is a particularly desirable timepiece.
The T1 by David Van Heim, made in Holland, measures 48mm in diameter. To the onlooker, to the wearer, this skilful distillation of watchmaking micromechanics with manual winding, in other words this entirely mechanical timepiece, looks smaller. But make no mistake about it, the timekeeper makes a bold, virile, attentiongrabbing statement on the wrist. An aperture on the dial at 12 o’clock leaves open to view the celebrated carriage containing the regulating organ beating at the heart of the movement.
The main dial, the detailed Côtes de Genève decoration adorning this complicated movement is teasingly visible through a series of pleasingly arranged apertures, to become fully revealed when you turn the watch over.
The T1 by David Van Heim. Available in 4 versions: all black, comprising a black PVD coating, two-tone rose gold PVD and black PVD, all stainless steel, or all rose gold PVD.
