Andersen Genève presents its first ever “Montre à Tact” without a time window on the dial. Craftsmen can master their art to the edge on the full surface of the timepiece. Among the elegant Parisian society of the late 18th century it was considered impolite to consult one’s watch when in company. In 1795, this formal etiquette inspired Abraham Louis Breguet to invent a pocket watch that read the time by feeling the exposed hour hand and hour markers on the case. Andersen Genève revived this concept through a unique wristwatch called “Montre à Tact”.
High quality automatic movement upgraded by Andersen Genève with a time-window module developed and assembled in the atelier.
Window between the lugs to read time. A crown is applied on the back of the case to set the time
Hand-stitched blue calf
Estimate: CHF 50'000 - 55'000
