“Guy’s Eclectic Choice of The Week”: François Quentin’s 4N MVT01 D01 Digital Watch
Photographer Guy Lucas de Peslouan shares his images and thoughts on François Quentin's 4N MVT01 D01, a watch with a kinetic digital time display
A few thoughts by Guy:
The 4N MVT01 D01 watch was created by François Quentin, a French designer who amongst other things designed the first watch of Hautlence.
The idea of 4N was to have a dynamic digital presentation to read time, using rotating disks driven by a mechanical movement. For this he partnered with APRP (AP Renaud & Papi) to develop an original and fantastic movement with kinetic time disks and 10 days of power reserve.
The animation on the dial is amazing and impressive specially every hour, but also each minute.
The watch is limited to 16 pieces which includes a few unique piece, like a black version or sapphire box version.
