    Andreas Strehler is a hallowed name for the cognoscenti, a potent mix of watchmaker, mathematician, philosopher and astronomer he is known as the watchmaker’s watchmaker, a brilliant movement constructor and designer who has worked with some of the world’s greatest brands to create unique complicated movements, his motto being “It’s complicated to be simple”.

    After having worked at Renaud & Papi, Strehrelr set out on his own in 1995 as an independent watchmaker and 3 years later presented his first timepiece and has ever since continued creating complicated movements for others and under his own name.

    In 2014 he presented the Sautrelle à Lune Perpetuelle featuring a moonphase display accurate to 2.045 million years (beating his own previous record of a watch with an 11,189 year moonphase precision) so impressive was this feat that is entered the Guiness Book of Records the following year. A position it has firmly held since.

    However, non-content to offer this precise moonphase system the Sautrelle (French for grasshopper) also features a one second remontoire system that can be admired via an opening of the dial at the 10 o’clock position. This ingenious constant force device enables an even flow of energy from the mainspring regardless of the state of wind leading to greater accuracy.

    The fully inhouse movement is beautifully finished and features his signature butterfly shaped bridge almost covering the full movement. As Strehler is a man who believes in details the plate behind the balance has been guilloché to mirror the pattern on the dial.

    Strehler’s creations are so rare that this is the very first time we are offering one of his timepieces at Phillips moreover the present example is the only one ever made in platinum adding extra desirability – even if that is possible- to the piece.


A unique platinum wristwatch with constant force escapment, dead beat seconds, and moonphase display acurate to over 2 million years with box and guarantee
