Maîtres du Temps is an independent watchmaker founded by American watch entrepreneur Steven Holtzmann. Each of its watches, the Chapters, is created in collaboration with several independent watchmakers.
The Chapter Three Reveal, which has just been launched at Baselworld 2012, is the work of Kari Voutilainen and Andreas Strehler.
They have created a stunningly elegant timepiece that displays hours, minutes, seconds, date, and phase of the moon, all set on a sumptuous blue guilloche dial.
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 Maîtres du Temps’ signature rollers.
