Jean Marcel's new Artem collection

German independent watch brand Jean Marcel presents the limited watch edition Artem. This Latin word stands for art and the clocks: an appropriate choice for a collection of timepieces which belong to the flattest in their segment.


ean Marcel, the Swiss Made brand founded in 1981, presents several models in its new Artem collection.

Among them is the chronograph Élégance with a height of only 11 mm. The related movement, an 11 ½’’’ ETA 2894-2 Elaboré, shows itself in a highly refined design with noble cuts and blued screws. It is the thinnest automatic chronograph calibre with large rotor in the world.


The automatic models are based on a historical 12 ½’’’ ETA 2892. Elaborately skeletonized and finished, they have a Glucydur balance that guarantees the precision.

The hand-wound models with an ETA 2801-2 in Perlage finish with Glucydur balance wheel are skeletonized as well.


The Artem Petite Seconde is based on the ETA calibre from the Spécialité 2895-2 category. Beautiful dials with a colour gradient from dark to light provide these models with a unique look.


All models of the Artem collection are equipped with two sapphire glasses. When breathed on the upper sapphire crystal for a few seconds, the JM logo becomes visible.

The mechanical Jean Marcel watches are meticulously fine-tuned, the amplitude is optimized. A certificate confirming the average daily rate is enclosed to every watch.
