DETAILS

Watchmaking is traditionally based on a system of fixed elements driven by gears. Genus defines new principles for telling time by introducing a world premiere time display complication that deconstructs conventional systems. On the dial, the time is read left to right using three different indicators.

Hours: On the left side of the dial, a fixed arrow indicates the current hour, which is read from the orbiting satellites as they pass by. The 12 numbered satellites remain upright throughout their journey by rotating 90° every three hours to maintain legibility.

Tens of Minutes: In the center, dragon-shaped elements travel freely between two large counter-rotating wheels marked in increments of 10. The lead element – called the Genus – indicates the time in ten-minute increments.

Precise Minutes: On the right side of the dial, a fixed arrow shows the precise minute using a rotary display that is graduated from 0 to 9.
