Simplicity has never been so attractive as with the Friederich II. Three hands, no complications, pure horological poetry. Something “aparently” so simple yet so special that it is only recognized and appreciated by those truly initiated.

The Albert is not only a technical marvel but it finishings make it more than just a watch. It is a true work of art. Like with most superlative timepieces what happens behind the scenes is always...Read More
