Space oddities

Phantasmagorical shapes, experiments in decoration, high-flying mechanical follies, mixes of styles, candy colours – on the watch scene numerous “space oddities” break with accepted codes, throw tradition to the wind and restraint to the dogs in search of new forms of expression. And fun. And since tastes vary, every watchmaking pioneer has their own cohort of addicts and collectors. Who knows, today’s eccentricity may be tomorrow’s normal.
