Antoine Preziuso Geneve Metropolis, Less is More



This brand new creation by ANTOINE PREZIUSO stands out for its architectural urban and contemporary design.
Minimalism is the principle; the expression is pure, sober and essential.

Its square titanium case encloses a highly distinctive dial, where the shape of the hands sticks out, reflecting the form of the skyscrapers in cosmopolitan cities. The big date appears majestically at 12 o’clock, as a mark in the space of time.

What else do we need, except nibbling the seconds, savouring the minutes and relishing the days passing.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Antoine de St-Exupéry

As a graphic designer, I'm fascinated by the crossroads between technology and aesthetics. Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye. WatchPaper was born from the desire to create an online tool where I can share my passion for watches.
