deconstruction of the FIFTY FATHOMS. For lovers of this brand, they have the opportunity to see the watch
as they have never seen it before.
In a world of smart technologies and digital clouds that house our entire lives, the era of mechanical wonders may seem to be disappearing. The Naked Watchmaker (founded by Master Watchmaker Peter Speake-Marin) has set itself the lofty goal of showing the world, the beauty of horology. Literally from the inside out, revealing the mechanics and excellence and that goes into the making of these marvellous timepieces from around the world.
The site offers the opportunity to see modern established brands such as Rolex, IWC, Omega, Patek Philippe and Tag Heuer as well as independents such as MB&F, Philipe Dufour amongst many others. These timepieces are stripped down for the world to see. Described as a photographic vision into the heart of watchmaking, the site offers a view of the inside of these amazing instruments.
For those curious, the website also offers sections on vintage watches, a series on the development and making of a calibre, and a moving series of interviews with individuals who have contributed to the industry.
Today The Naked Watchmaker starts its first series on a single brand, BLANCPAIN, starting with the deconstruction of the FIFTY FATHOMS. For lovers of this brand, they have the opportunity to see the watch as they have never seen it before.
