AGENHOR X HEAD

LOT 1

CARPE DIEM

In 2017, after nine years of development, Agenhor presented the AgenGraphe®, the world's most advanced chronograph movement.  It features a revolutionary central, coaxial, elapsed time display offering unparalleled legibility for a wristwatch, plus a dial-side winding rotor that does not obscure appreciation of its mechanical beauty. 

 

For Only Watch, Agenhor presents Carpe Diem, powered by the very first production AgenGraphe® movement manufactured and delivered by Agenhor. Carpe Diem is a fully functioning desk clock and chronograph that can be orientated through 360 degrees:  instead of hands, five rotating disks display time and elapsed time. 

 

Agenhor is a movement supplier, not a brand; this truly unique piece has been designed in collaboration with students at the Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD), who imagined a transparent ball magnifying the beauty of this next-generation chronograph movement.  The concept of highlighting what's normally hidden is inspired by the vibrant minds and personalities of children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
