Andersen Genève Grande Jour & Nuit Edition 2014 Watch

Andersen Genève Grande Jour & Nuit Edition 2014 Watch
Andersen Genève returns to an exceptional watch, imagined in 2000, in response to demand from collectors and admirers of rare mechanisms that bring to life equally rare displays. For this new Grande Jour & Nuit, indications have been transferred, highly legibly, on the dial with daytime hours (6am to 6pm) and night-time hours (6pm to 6am), in addition to a small minutes dial. The long tip of the central hand points to daytime hours while the shorter end indicates night-time hours. It jumps when the small minute hand has made one complete revolution of the dial. Production of the Frédéric Piguet movement having ceased, Andersen Genève proposes a limited series of 50 watches - 30 in red gold and 20 in white gold - each equipped with this now rare mechanism.
