Thomas Prescher Nemo Captain

Swiss Watchmaker Thomas Prescher reveals the Nemo Captain, the second watch in the Nemo Series.

The watch is inspired by Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea along with steampunk and art nouveau influences, according to Mr. Prescher.

Prescher is perhaps famous for his triple-axis tourbillon, and the complication takes center stage in this new piece. Prescher also added a jumping hour indication in the lower-right quadrant of the dial.

As with most of Thomas Prescher’s creations, this piece was made for a specific client. Here is a look at the triple-axis in motion (not on this particular watch, though):
