Explore a new world of watchmaking

Mechanical complications made out of blades

Coming soon. Curious to follow our developments?

Introducing blade complications

For 700 years, watchmakers have relied on wheels and pinions to design their mechanical wonders. We create our mechanisms with flexure blades instead.

Forget what you think you know about watchmaking: our complications are out of this world.


Blade mechanisms initially emerged from the space industry where repairing is not an option. Indeed, they do not need lubricant or servicing. And that is less servicing for your watches too.

If it's good enough for NASA, it's good enough for us.

The collision of two worlds

We have hijacked the manufacturing processes of the microelectronic world to miniaturize the blade mechanisms of the space industry.

By combining the know-how of two cutting-edge industries, we discovered an unexplored path for mechanical watchmaking in the 21st century.

Swiss roots

We use the most advanced design and manufacturing techniques out there. Yet, we share the same DNA as watchmakers from our past: we wish to enchant and surprise with our mechanical wonders.

Welcome to our world.


Who invented this technology?

This technology was developed at CSEM, a Swiss research institute with deep roots in watchmaking. The first quartz watch and the silicon hairspring were both imagined and developed there. Our blade mechanisms benefit from years of know-how and experience accumulated at CSEM. Three patents, so far, protect this innovation.

Are you developing a complete movement out of blades?

No! We only develop complication modules that integrate with an existing mechanical movement. Traditional movements do their job perfectly, and we do not want to reinvent the wheel. We craft complications that could not exist otherwise.

Why are your complications made out of silicon?

Because silicon is the only material that can be etched so precisely. We recently made our complications out of steel and the smallest we got was a wall clock. Pretty cool but not practical to wear.

How reliable are these mechanisms?

Extremely. They do not wear or fatigue. They also do not influence the timekeeping function of the movement that powers them.

How close are you from a first timepiece?

We plan to launch our initial model in mid-2023. Stay tuned, we cannot wait to share it with you.



We are a Swiss indie brand creating the watches of tomorrow.
