Watchmaking and geometry have always worked together. The cases of timepieces can be round, square or rectangular. Cabestan, defying the conventions in a line of its own, offers a geometric alternative: the trapeze.
Whatever the viewing angle, the shape of a trapezoid is recognizable at first glance. The result is a complex combination of quadrilaterals giving the Trapezium an imposing appearance, powerful, earth ... The case is slightly asymmetrical. The design concept is simple, the indexes are off, allowing simple and intuitive way of reading time with rotating drums. The side flanks of the Trapezium are designed to provide an angle of view of the special motion. The background is also a sapphire crystal inviting the viewer to observe the fascinating aspect of the mechanism.
The movement of the Cabestan EC102 is recognized for its spectacular design and accuracy. Eric Coudray, one of the most prominent time master watchmakers, has designed this movement to perfection.
