DAVID CANDAUX - 1740 / THE FIRST 8
THE EYE, THE HAND AND THE HEART !
It’s quite rare to see a new brand entering the market with such high quality! and for us, this one was the must see at Baselworld 2017.
The « 1740 First 8 » is the first creation of David Candaux (under his brand), a fourth generation watchmaker of La Vallée de Joux. The EYE, the HAND and the HEART are his 3 values and you will feel them through the timepiece.
The dial is pure pleasure with a 30 degrees inclined Flying Tourbillon on the left and the hour/minutes hands on the right. A power reserve indication is also present at 12 o’clock looking like a car gauge.
Its Secret crown at 6 o’clock is a Genius idea! Counting none less than 31 parts, the crown is retractable and has the three standard purposes which are the neutral, setting and winding mode.
The case is a Beauty! Raised at 12 o’clock and lowered at 6 o’clock, its aesthetic is original and very well executed.
« Osmosis » is simply the word that defines the « 1740 First 8 » and we can’t wait the see the next one.
Our hats off! D.Candaux.
