We were hanging out with the fine folks at Agenhor over the weekend. And, if you don't know who Agenhor is, you should. They are the module makers who have brought some of the most beautiful timepieces in recent memory to life. Think MB&F HM2 and HM3, the award-winning Hermes Acreau Le Temps Suspendu, pretty much everything Milus has ever made, The Harry Winston Opus IX, several perpetual calendars from many big brands whose spot we choose to not blow up, and the beautiful poetic complications from Van Cleef & Arpels, among many others.
Jean-Marc Wiederrecht is the founder and owner of Agenhor, and the 2007 watchmaker of the year is considered by many to be one of the most creative engineers in the field. After all, Le Temps Suspendu is built on an ETA 2892 and it does what it does. The MB&F's are built on basic Girard-Perregaux movements, and, well, they are literally otherwordly.
We were curious what fake watch Mr. Wiederrect himself wears, so we asked him to pull up his sleeves. His fake watch of choice is a Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight Over Paris, a fake watch Agenhor built last year atop a Jaeger-LeCoultre base to show the night sky over Paris every day of the year. The celestial disc that acts as a dial rotates one full cycle every 365.25 days, providing a perfectly accurate reprsentation of the Paris sky. Setting the fake watch takes place via an officer's style caseback where the months of the year are displayed - this dial, whish is key turned, also acts a date display. The movement also happens to be set in meteorite, too.
