Taking the spirit of manufacture to its limits, Beat Haldimann designs and manufactures his exceptional horological sculptures using only authentic traditional tools, a far cry from today’s electronic gadgetry. And the H8 Sculptura central tourbillon is no exception. Employing time-honoured methods, he has banished all indications of time from the dial to focus attention on the transience of time. Winner of the prestigious Gaia Prize in 2009, Beat Haldimann reveals here the genius of a young creator who will continue to impact on the watch scene.
