    Picture Michel Jordi Limited Edition ‘Icons of the World’ collection



    Noted Swiss watchmaker Michel Jordi has paid tribute to some of the world’s most legendary places in a new series of novelty watches. One collection, eight places, each issued in a limited edition of three. Jordi calls it Icons of the World.

    Launched at GTE-2012, Michel Jordi introduced the line-up consisting of eight models. These include:

    • China’s Great Wall
    • India's Taj Mahal
    • Japan's Mount Fuji
    • Brazil’s Mount Sugarloaf
    • Switzerland’s Interlaken with the mountains of the Eiger
    • Switzerland’s Jungfrau, with its fountain Jet d'Eau
    • America’s Statue of Liberty
    • Russia’s Kremlin


    Each novelty is released in a limited edition of only 3 pieces. In co-operation with Jean-François Mojon, (winner of the “best watchmaker in 2010″ from the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix), and with the design developed by Christophe Moines, Jordi has created an unusual gong-striking mechanism.


    Instead of the usual vibrations of the caseback, a hammer strikes the gong at a low frequency of just 2Hz, reminiscent of the cadence of the ringing of a mountain chapel bell.

    The watch features a sapphire crystal lens and the cylinder-shaped crown features a deconstructed Swiss flag.


    And the reason the watch is called Icons of the World becomes apparent where the day/night indicator reveals at 10 o’clock the place or monument famous to each country.

    The 46mm case, in titanium and red gold certainly makes the watch a stand out piece.
