Master watchmaker Andreas Strehler, known as Engineer for the Brands, Watchmaker for the Few, has earned a coveted place in the Guinness World Records with the incredible Sauterelle à Lune Perpétuelle.
This unique watch has raised the bar for accurate timekeeping to an entirely different plane, engineering a system which virtually eliminates any possible obstacle impeding the escapement, united to a moon phase indicator made of only four components and possessing an unprecedented level of accuracy.
The world record it has taken is “the most precise lunar phase wristwatch”, with a deviation of only 1 day in 2,060,757 years, as validated in November 2014. In so doing, the fascinating Sauterelle à lune perpetuelle virtually rewrites the concept of eternity in watch-making terms.
The architecture of the movement itself and Strehler’s signature touch, the papillon-shaped bridge, are the focus of the visual design. The contrast with the gear train and the sublime decoration of the movement are astoundingly sophisticated. Complemented by a sapphire crystal case back, this is a true masterpiece, worthy of pride of place in any collection of astronomical and moon-phase timepieces.
