MUSE, a Swiss watch company that launched in 2016, merges watchmaking tradition with the modernity of contemporary art. Founders Pascal Robert and Frédéric Leuba, both watchmaking engineers, have created an innovative design that eliminates the traditional hands. Instead, it uses finely crafted patterns that run at the speed of hours, minutes and seconds, generating compositions in perpetual motion. Minute and hour hands are incorporated in the composition. The models use a collector movement, made from 1969 to 1982, the ETA 2776 named MU01. Several hundred of which have been recovered from a collector. Men’s collections include the Akylon, Tanoura and Kagura. MUSE also makes timepieces for ladies in its Stella, Tanoura and Stella S collections, with mineral dials and mechanical movements.
