Kevin Blanc, a fellow swiss designer here in NYC, who will be renting my desk for the time I am on maternity leave starting next week, is the proud owner of this amazing MIH Watch. I had me gasp. It’s *such* a beauty.
It is the official watch of the Musée International d‘Horlogerie (MIH), the international museum of watchmaking, which is situated in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The watch is unlike any you may have encountered in museum shops. The MIH Watch personifies the mission of the museum, which is to convey to a broader public the importance of horology, and of mechanical watchmaking in particular. The MIH Watch is not being produced by a watch brand on behalf of the museum, nor does it already exist under some other name. It has been designed from the ground up and incorporates a mechanism that you will not find in any other watch. The MIH Watch has a mechanical movement and its casing is fashioned from high-grade titanium.
Absolutely stunning: MIH Watch.
