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

Cushion shaped, the watch case of the “Immédiate” is 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 240°. 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.

The Immédiate Transatlantique is the result of a Franco-American adventure. Created in collaboration with Bulova, Beyond the Dial and Semper & Adhuc, this limited edition model with a touch of Swiss quality celebrates another aspect of watchmaking history: the spread of know-how on a global scale.

It all begins with an early Bulova movement, which was developed in Switzerland between the 1940s and 1970s, then completed and assembled in the brand’s home country, the United States. Decades later, this same movement, acquired and restored by the French workshop Semper & Adhuc, became the heart of a new cushion-shaped watch with a blue, white and red dial.


Inspired from the ancient engravings of skymaps, "l’Instantanée originale" is the only model of our collection where the hours are actually written in every letter. This peculiarity has ensued a tremendous public success. The drawing is nicely highlighted by the play of colors on the dial, which combines nicely a cream colored background with the red pad printed, perfectly adjusted with the light grey watchband.


Very pure lines, a cerulean blue reminded by the hands….with its aesthetic, simultanoulsy symbol of tradition and universality, the "Instantanée classique" occupies a prominent place in our collection. Its round casing enhances elegantly your wrist, and can be worn easily with any style whatsoever.


A minimalist variation of our cushion shaped model, “l’Immédiate originale” unveils a sober dial and a light composition which breathes. The indications are reduced to their minimum, to let the void takes place and shows its profound sense: the intuitive reading of time.


"L’Inopinée originale" reflects firmly the spirit of the brand since its origin. The result of the colorimetric equilibrium between the black dial and the brown watchband in smooth leather is a pure aesthetic. The white hands browse skillfully the railway going from an odd hour to the next, allowing not only a new reading of time but a peaceful one.


This oval shaped watch is the smallest of the collection, but without a doubt, the most serious in its classical approach of the wachmaking codes: the white background of the dial contrasts strongly with the striking black marking, reminding a music score.
