Prologue

Many books begin their stories with a prologue. I decided to begin my story with the “Prologue” watch. It took almost two years to go from a passionate idea to a finished product. The “Prologue” is equipped with a black ring that rotates around the entire watch case. All three basic functions of a normal crown-function are easily accessible by the selector located on the case at four o’clock. Pure and authentic lines, aesthetic simplicity and mechanical ingenuity; this is how the “Prologue” has been described since its appearance.
