Independent Master Watchmakers Kari Voutilainen and Andreas Strehler have created a stunningly elegant timepiece that displays hours, minutes, seconds, date, and phase of the moon, all set on a sumptuous guilloche dial.
But that’s not all, and this is where mystery, suspense and surprise come in: Voutilainen and Strehler have also kept a couple of intimate secrets in reserve, to be revealed, and perhaps even shared, at the owner’s pleasure. A pusher set into the crown lowers two invisible panels in the dial to reveal two more hitherto hidden indications: a second time zone indicator (also known as a GMT) and a day/night indicator, both displayed on Maitres du Temps’ signature rollers. Elegant sophistication has never looked so good.

Chapter One—Excellence Is Timeless: Chapter One represents a milestone in the watchmaking industry, establishing a standard of excellence that offers its owner a true taste of perfection. This highly complex timepiece combines a one-minute tourbillon, a mono-pusher chronograph, a retrograde date, and GMT indicator. Days of the week are indicated on the 6 o’clock roller, and a patented precise moon phase indication displays on the 12 o’clock roller.The Masters - Christophe Claret & Peter Speake-Marin. Ensuring that what is seen in the mind’s eye can be worn on the wrist is the business of Christophe Claret. His exceptional movements are remarkable for their precision, reliability, and complexity.
