First Look: Frédéric Jouvenot Surya Watch

Frédéric Jouvenot graces the Fine Watchmaking garden with the blossoming of an unprecedented complication: Surya, the world's first watch to show the hours by means of 12 jumping petals.

Crafted in pink sapphires, the latter change colour to depict the cycles of day and night while displaying the upcoming hour and the hour that has just elapsed.Like historical automata, the secret of this spectacular corolla in motion can be found in the most complex mechanism, concealed beneath the central minutes disc

 An inner case placed at the heart of the watch comprises a hundred or so parts, including 24 jewels activating the jumping petals – cleverly interacting to create the magic of Surya.
