"MOSAÏQUE" BY BARBIER-MUELLER

Made entirely in Geneva, the MOSAÏQUE by Barbier-Mueller timepiece pays homage to fine Genevan watchmaking and to the decorative arts. The entire piece, from the dial to the rose gold case, features a subtle cloisonné motif that evokes the art of mosaics, which dates from the end of the fourth century B.C. In a reference to the pocket watch, the back has a cover that is similarly decorated. When opened, it reveals its heart - a mechanical gold movement designed by the Genevan manufacture F.P.Journe – Invenit & Fecit-, thus definitively confirming the horological legitimacy of this exclusive series.

 

The prototype of MOSAÏQUE by Barbier-Mueller, with its rose gold case, ideally showcases the play of light over the coloured jasper stones. On the back, the decorated case cover features a small central platinum disk that is like a powerful, protective talisman, and bears the engraved words ONLY WATCH and the number 7 - remembering the years of the OW auction project. Underneath, the 18 ct. rose gold movement, based on the FPJourne 1304 calibre, displays the supreme elegance of mechanical horology.
