Effeuillage

LE MOUVEMENT :

Actuellement, nos montres sont équipées du calibre à remontage manuel suisse AS 1012 et ses déclinaisons. Ces mouvements 5 ½ ’’’ ont été manufacturés entre les années 1930 et 1970, époque où l’éclat de ces bijoux de mécanique rayonnait sur le monde entier. Une pièce de choix alors adoptée par de nombreuses marques pour la fiabilité de sa conception. Souvent issus de fontes, ces mouvements furent dénués lorsque les propriétaires souhaitaient récupérer les matériaux précieux du boitier, pour créer un nouveau bijou ou en tirer la valeur pécuniaire. Aujourd’hui, nous les associons à des pièces neuves dans des garde-temps intemporels.

 

LE BOITIER :

De forme ovale, le boitier de L’Inopinée est conçu en acier inoxydable 316 L satiné, et en
deux parties clipsées : la carrure et le fond. Ce dernier est gravé et ajouré par un œilleton laissant partiellement entrevoir les rouages abrités sous le boitier. Son petit format, contenu dans 37mm, rappelle la taille des montres d’autrefois, plus sobres,
convenant aussi bien aux femmes qu’aux hommes.

 

LA COURONNE :

Gravée au logo de la marque, elle dispose d’un crantage partiel sur 120°. Son orientation, à droite ou à gauche du boitier, est au choix du porteur.

 

LE CADRAN :

Une fois de plus, la simplicité est de mise : on y trouve les heures, les minutes, et le nom de la marque au centre. Ce dernier est réalisé grâce au procédé de tampographie utilisant des clichés gravés. Une technique séculaire inventée par et pour les horlogers, néanmoins appliquée de nos jours dans de nombreux autres domaines.

 

LES AIGUILLES :

De forme “bâton”, elles arborent une finesse qui nous relie tout en douceur à l’instant présent.

 

LE BRACELET :

Pour leur confection, l’atelier SEMPER & ADHUC s’est associé à l’artisan maroquinier Bordelais Vincent Jacquinot. Les cuirs d’origine française sont sélectionnés spécifiquement pour nos montres, afin de proposer une gamme de qualité, dont nous maîtrisons la traçabilité.

 

L’ÉCRIN :

Composé de liège usiné et de carton doré à chaud, cet écrin maintient votre montre à l’aide d’une élégante attache japonaise. Sont inclus le manuel d’utilisation comportant la garantie internationale, ainsi que l’outil qui permet de changer soi-même son bracelet.

Stripping

THE MOVEMENT:

At this time our watches are equipped with the swiss hand wound caliber AS1012 or its declinations. These movements 51/2” were manufactured between 1930 and 1970, a time when these mechanical jewels shone on the whole world. It was a mechanism of choice then adopted by many brands for the reliability of its conception. Often coming from melting, these movements were stripped when their owners wished to retrieve the precious materials of the casing, to create a new jewel or simply to earn some money. Nowadays, we use and associate them to new pieces in timeless watches.

 

THE WATCH CASE:

The watchcase of the “Inopinée” is oval and made in satin finish stainless steel 316L.
It is built in two parts clipsed together : the middle watch case and the caseback.
The caseback is engraved and openworked with an eyecup which lets partially oversee the wheelworks under the case.
Its small sizing, contained in only 37mm, reminds that of the ancient watches, yet more sober and equally fitting women or men wrists.

 

THE WATCH CROWN:

Our crown is engraved with the logo of the brand and has a partial notching on 120°. Its orientation, at the right or the left of the watch case depends entirely on the desire of the owner.

 

THE DIAL:

The watch dial is simple again. You will find hours, minutes, and the name of the brand in the center. Those marks are made thanks to the process of pad printing, using engraved clichés, an age-old technique formerly invented by and for the watchmakers, yet still in use nowadays in many other domains.

 

THE HANDS:

With their “Stick” shape, they bear a refinement and finesse that links us softly to the present time.

 

THE WATCHBAND:

For their manufacturing, the Semper & Adhuc workshop has chosen to work in partnership with a leather craftsman from Bordeaux, Mr. Vincent Jacquinot. All the leathers used are of french origin, specifically selected for our watches, so that we could offer a range of high quality, which traceability is controllable.

 

THE LUXURY CASKET :

The caskets are made of machined cork and decorated with golden heated cardboard. The watch is held in its secure position thanks to a smart japanese clip. You will also find with your time keeper its instruction manual, as well as the certificate of international guarantee. The necessary tool to change your bracelet will also be included.
