Among the elegant Parisian society of the late 18th century it was considered impolite to consult one’s watch when in company. In 1795, this formal etiquette inspired Abraham Louis Breguet to invent a pocket watch that read the time by feeling the exposed hour hand and hour markers on the case. ANDERSEN Genève revived this concept through a unique wristwatch called “Montre à Tact”. It discreetly reveals the time with the help of one reading time window; a disc turning aperture between the lugs. The Collector can discreetly read the time without the need to turn the wrist to reveal the dial.
No hands are disturbing the artwork that takes place on the full surface of the timepiece. Fine attention to detail in all aspects can be admired.
