  • Catalogue Essay

    Pascal Coyon is part of the new wave of independent artisanal watchmakers that offer beautifully crafted and executed classical timepieces. Coyon is a watch and clock repairer based in Bayonne, South West of France. Around 2012 he set out to create his own chronometer wristwatch and a year and a half later he had his first prototype.

    Coyon’s goal was to offer a wristwatch with a superlative finish at a rather affordable price. He therefore used the tried and tested Unitas 6498 as the base movement, however, the latter is so heavily modified that it is unrecognizable. Coyon’s focus on the movement’s aesthetics is apparent with the elegantly curved bridges, polished angles, a comma-shaped regulator index for micro-metric setting and, a sand blasted finish for the whole movement.

    A closer look at the movement reveals a viper head stamped at the base of the balance cock, demonstrating that the watch had undergone the Besançon Observatory trials.

    Coyon created 60 movements, 20 with yellow finish, 20 with pink finish and 20 with silver finish like the present example. The white lacquer dials were available with or without a red twelve.
