The 1010 Timekeeper limited edition reveals itself… and time stands still. For this limited edition, Caran d’Ache pays homage to watch dials – repositories of the identity of exceptional timepieces. Guardians of the march of time, they faithfully accompany it down through the ages.
10 hours and 10 minutes … the ideal moment to stop the movement of the hands. A journey around the dial, instantly plunging you into the world of luxury watchmaking. Several elements of exclusive know-how are brought together in perfect harmony in this unique piece: guillochage, engraving, manual polishing, lacquering and PVD treatment.
The 1010 Timekeeper limited edition boasts two silver- and rhodium-plated caps that can be changed according to the user’s desire, just as you would change a watch strap. The first cap is inspired by the mesh design of metallic watch straps. The second cap echoes the codes of watch crowns used to set the time. The edition is limited to 500 pieces.
More than 100 operations are required to craft each model in the Geneva workshops of the Manufacture. Milling, satin-brushing, polishing, diamond grinding, guillochage, gemsetting…, resulting in a unique creation combining expertise, artisanal skills and artistic crafts. Assembling each of these pens is a meticulous task: the precision of this assembly process stems from tiny details: in the pursuit of absolute perfection, each part is adjusted by hand.
Caran d’Ache, founded in 1924 by Arnold Schweitzer, was a product of Switzerland’s long history of watchmaking and jewellery manufacture. Today, it is the epitome of superior quality and recognized expertise. Each product is created by hand in the Geneva workshops and brings together the traditional expertise of master craftsmen and the performance of computer-assisted machine tools.€ 9.900,00
