Raúl Pagès Soberly Onyx Limited Edition

Young watch maker Raúl Pagès launches his first watch “Soberly Onyx”- a contemporary horology creation crafted using traditional watchmaking methods and tools. Handmade in Switzerland and equipped with a historic mechanical calibre, this timepiece is available in a limited edition of ten pieces.
Cased in 18k white gold, this timepiece combines simplicity, purity and an exceptional standard of decoration on all parts of the movement. This piece possesses a handmade in house movement based on a vintage Cyma calibre from the 1950’s that is entirely reworked and decorated by hand.
Through making his own balance wheel and bridge by hand from scratch (diameter 13.30 mm), Raúl Pagès aspires to rediscover the elegance of the large balance wheels found in high end pocket watches from the 19th century.
The black onyx dial with refined, handmade 18k white gold indexes and hardened steel hands gives the timepiece a contemporary, elegant look, inspired by the sophisticated style of the Art Deco era.
The black frosted finish of the main plate contrasts beautifully with the hand polished angles, marrying tradition and modernity.
