  • Catalogue Essay

    Maîtres du Temps was founded in 2007 by Steven Holzman as a new horological concept. Their first success was the Chapter One timepiece with the collaboration of Peter Speake-Marin, Roger Dubuis and Christophe Claret. The highly complicated watch features a tourbillon with single button chronograph, a retrograde date and GMT indication, along with two rolling bars for day of the week and moon phase. An exceptional watch both from a design and technical perspective, the Chapter One shows the influence of each of the master watchmakers.

    Chapter Two is equally a masterpiece and was a collaborative effort with Daniel Roth, Roger Dubuis and Peter Speake-Marin. The watch is a technical marvel with an oversize date at the 12 o’clock, and then two large display windows over the lugs at 12 and 6, both of which are rollers that indicate the day and month. The technical challenge was to have enough energy so that the rollers would jump correctly without a lag time.

    The idea for the watch was to create a timepiece that was the most legible triple calendar available. The master watchmakers achieve their goal with a modern design and that displays their creativity and technical skills. The present watch is in excellent overall condition and is sure delight watch enthusiast of the 21st-century.
