An established man’s pleasures and indulgences know no real bounds. We take on
anything from jewelry, to cars and so on and so fourth. However, there is one
indulgence that nobody can escape so we embrace it and slap it on our left wrist.
The indulgence is Time.
Few things are more indicative of a man’s character than his watch collection. The
variants truly never end. If you’re a true collector of the fine gears, you’re always
looking for a new and interesting piece to fit in that empty spot you have left in your
collective case. There is a watch for every occasion, maybe one for flotation, or just
plain old female persuasion.
The new boys on the block (who are hardly new) over in Switzerland have
developed a watch to stand out in casual occasions, which is in my opinion the
toughest nail to hit. Art Mécanique, was engineered by two Swiss gentlemen by the
names of Adriano and Frederic. Their latest creation easily reflects the 32 years of

developed the watch’s unique feature by using their SA movement.
The watch comes with seven different strap colors, three choices for the
customizable plate at the bottom, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass to
make all the innards come alive. With so many possible modifications, the
possibilities are endless. Were it available at this moment, even the most decisive
watch connoisseur might require a day or two to solidify how he might like his

base has a diamond stitching for the grand finale.
If you’re a man of simpler, traditional, and classic pieces, this watch encompasses all
three while incorporating a futuristic twist that is enticing to the eyes of techies and
collectors alike. All of these details come together for an exquisite finish; this watch
is certainly the type of investment that anyone within their means would consider
