Frédéric Jouvenot

24 hours Jumping Cage

A unique
Watchmaking
mechanism system

Simple to read yet fitted with a complex mechanism, these timepieces in Frédéric Jouvenot’s Solar Deity collection have two faces, corresponding to the day and night cycles. For the first time in watchmaking history, a timepiece displays the time without conventional hands, numerals or disks.

But how does it
work ?

At mid-day, all the sunbeams are golden to represent daylight. At that precise moment, the dial represents the sun at its zenith. As time passes, the rays become black, one after another, clockwise; the dial darkens and announces oncoming night. Midnight is represented by twelve dark beams reflecting in the night. To symbolise the return to light, the sunbeams take turns to pivot again until mid-day, thus completing a full 24 hour cycle.
