I like the ideas and opinions that Fonderie 47 originates up with. So after wowing us with the exciting AK47 cufflinks, the set of fittings now becomes a new chum, the Upturn Principle timepiece. The watch has been intended by Adrian Glessing and developed and produced by David Candaux/Du Val Des Bois, and sale proceeds will benefit “the destruction of one thousand assault rifles in Africa, creating a safer environment for aid and development”. As for the watch, it also borrows elements from the AK47. The back plate is made from steel made using “a destroyed assault weapon”. The watch features a central 3-minute flying tourbillon which forms a major part of the the three-dimensional dial. The dial also sports “three second-hands equally spaced 120° apart around the tourbillon cage arc sedately across the seconds-scale above the tourbillon” Priced at $350,000 each, the Inversion Principle watch will be limited to 20 units only: 10 in white gold and 10 in red gold.
