  • Catalogue Essay

    Hailing from California, Joshua Shapiro, the founder of his eponymous brand, has single-handedly reestablished America's presence in the realm of watchmaking. Despite being a high school principal in Los Angeles, Shapiro's passion for mechanics and watchmaking led him to dedicate his free time to seven years of study at the British Horological Institute, focusing on watchmaking and guillochage.

    Demonstrating exceptional skill and talent, Shapiro launched his brand in 2018, specializing in timepieces that showcase his newly invented guilloché pattern known as the Infinity. This innovative design, based on fractals, features a series of intricate patterns within repeating patterns. The dial, adorned with hand-engraved markings filled with ink, requires an entire month to complete. Featuring a contemporarily elegant 40mm diameter case, the timepiece presents itself with a combination of both polished and brushed surfaces.

    Although no longer in production, the case was offered in five different metals. According to our findings, a total of 100 Infinity examples were produced, with the present model being one of only 6 white gold examples!Offered in excellent condition, the present Shapiro Infinity numbered 43 represents a fantastic opportunity to own a very limited and hard to come by timepiece from one of the spear heads of the rebirth of American independent horology.
