    The pure lines and classic dial of the Waltz N°1 Skeleton are inspired by the avant-garde and minimalist style of famous Austrian architect Adolf Loos. He is considered one of the precursors of modern architecture and his writings were published in Le Corbusier’s journal L’Esprit Nouveau, who appreciated his «clear and original» spirit.

    The Waltz N°1 Skeleton is equipped with the ultra-thin automatic movement VMF 5401/180 (Swiss Made), designed and produced by Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier. It has been modified by Zurich-based watchmaker Marc Jenni - an advocate of sober aesthetics and former member of the Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants (AHCI) - to fit a rotating seconds-disc, "waltzing" at 6 o‘clock, with a striped guilloche-pattern that aligns with that of the dial once a minute.

    INSPIRED BY VIENNESE MODERNISM

    In the art nouveau-dominated Vienna of the early 20st century, Austrian architect Adolf Loos was amongst the first ones to reject ornamentation and give priority to proportions and volumes. He is considered one of the precursors of modern architecture and his writings were published in Le Corbusier’s journal L’Esprit Nouveau, who appreciated his «clear and original» spirit. The subtle lines and classic dial of the Waltz N°1, as well as its straight guillochage, were inspired by the avant-garde and mini- malist style of Adolf Loos.
