“Guy´s Eclectic Choice of The Week”: Fonderie 47 – Inversion Principle Tourbillon
Photographer Guy Lucas de Peslouan shares his images and thoughts on Fonderie 47’s Inversion Principle Tourbillon
A few thoughts by Guy:
This watch was created for Peter Thum, founder of Fonderie 47 brand.
With ten pieces, this watch was very exclusive. The 3 min tourbillon take place in the center of the dial. Hours reading is on a guichet and the minutes are presented in a retrograde indicator.
This watch was designed by Adrian Glessing and the watchmaker is David Candaux, from « La vallée de Joux ».
On the back side, the black disk is a part from an AK 47 (weapon), a weapon used in many military conflicts in the world. This watch was created to help and support Peter Thum to collect and destroy weapon in war countries, like in Africa.
