  • Catalogue Essay

    Bringing a little joy to the world of horology, the French manufacturer Alain Silberstein was best known for his playful and colorful approach to watchmaking. Fitted with an uncommon square case, the present watch has an impish and dynamic presentation which is softened by the overall smooth edges. Reminiscent of Piet Mondrian’s abstract paintings of primary colors, the present watch proudly embodies Alain Silberstein’s unmistakable charms and Occidental design philosophy.

    Proudly made in France, this watch is not only fine-looking but also very functional. Most apparently, the chronograph hand is specially designed with a peculiar extension, which is called a Vernier scale hand. Adding an element of intrigue, the traditional aperture for days of the week has been replaced by different emoticons, also known as “Smiledays”. For instance, the uplifting red smile refers to a Saturday. The effect is further enhanced by the oval window for the emoticons that creates a facial look more than a square opening would.

    Complimented with a chronograph movement, a certificate of guarantee and presentation box, this present watch is by all means an intriguing addition to any collection.
