Cover CoA10 Watchmaker Limited Edition

A hundred years after watchmaker Stadler-Bouché had a building erected on Weissensteinstrasse in Solothurn, Swiss watch maker Cover pays tribute to its headquarters with a limited-edition timepiece. Like the building itself, this new watch is imbued with a tradition of refined horology. Indeed, shortly after completion, the building was bought by one of Switzerland's world-renowned schools of watchmaking.
This is where generations of prestigious watchmakers learned the skills of their trade, until 2002 when this "Uhrmacherschule" moved into larger premises. Cover bought and fully renovated the building, which in 2003 became its new headquarters.
To celebrate the centennial of such a historically significant building, Cover has chosen an open-heart movement to beat inside this anniversary watch, revealing the art of Swiss watchmaking from the inside. It comes in an embellished wood presentation box, together with a watchmaker's loupe through which to observe the mechanics of the movement at close quarters. The Cover CoA10 Watchmaker will be produced in a 200-piece limited edition series.
