Was this client from New York perhaps inspired by the Swiss railway station clocks for this wonderful perpetual calendar?
We did not ask him — but perhaps we should have.
In any case, he chose the optimal readability for a watch with his concept — the very same that thousands of people in Switzerland have used and appreciated every day on their way to work or into the mountains since 1944.
White as the basis and the dial color, black, as the best possible contrast, for the hands and the indices, and red for the extra display: for the seconds display on the Swiss railway clock (after all, the trains are punctual) – and for the date in the perpetual calendar.
Among all the beautiful individually manufactured perpetual calendars with visible metals, patinated surfaces, and spectacular combinations, this clear, conceptually perfect, and simple perpetual calendar stands out as a remarkable execution.
We wish its owner in New York much joy with it.
