B-SIDE: THE HIDDEN SIDE TIME

30 years of independence and 250 years of know-how as a watchmaker.
Based on this experience, Antoine Preziuso decided in 2008 to offer a new interpretation of the watch and highlight the hidden side of time.

The watch, as we know, is one of the few jewels of the man and it is in this aspect that B-side will be given first and foremost .. Its aesthetic "overwhelming" expresses a different approach to life, the question of the time display is secondary - nowadays time is recalled in all objects of our everyday life: cell phones, computers and so on.

Too often hidden, the movement becomes the main player in this staging. And when the owner could not resist a peek at the indication of time passing, pressing simple on secret pusher, offers an astonishing transformation. The watch opens, unfolds and turns without leaving the wrist. The traditional face with hands is revealed.

B-side offers a fascinating journey throughout space and time.
This avant-garde concept allowed by not less than 16000 hours of research and development is manufactured in titanium.
Discovered in 1791, the titanium is a ultralight high mechanical strength metal. It is one of the most biocompatible material, with the gold and platinum.
Because of the quality of its composition, it is increasingly used in industry and in particular the automotive industry, as well as geothermal and biomedical technology.

As for "The star of the show" Antoine Preziuso uses a tourbillon movement Caliber AP/2008 Black Gold, fully decorated and engraved by hand, in a limited series. Each movement will be a unique interpretation, and an automatic version is in preparation as well.

Odyssey Time

Confirmed as a "watch" composer and performer in the world selective de la Haute Horlogerie, he shares this passion naturally with her daughter Laura jeweler and his son Florian watchmaker, and all three are determined to make their contribution to world heritage de la Haute Horlogerie.

 
* The B-side will be unveiled at the 7th Private Antoine Preziuso Lounge at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva from Tuesday 8 to Friday, April 12, 2008.
On the occasion of the launch exceptionally Antoine Preziuso wishes to thank all those who participated in the creation of this unique object.
