Fonderie 47 Inversion Principle Tourbillon Watch Is Part AK
It has bracelet homme kingdom hearts been a few years now since I first sat down with montre gros bracelet homme co founder of Fonderie 47 John bracelet homme caoutchouc et or Zapolski in bracelet homme hollister San Francisco to discuss the interesting new brand concept. Without showing me any products at all, he excited me with bracelet homme lune a harrowing tale of traveling to Africa, and marque de bracelet femme trying to acquire the first lot of AK 47 machine guns to go back to the United States in order to start production on the brand set of jewelry and watches. Of the more memorable parts of the story were how he and business partner Peter Thum needed to find a machinist gourmette ou bracelet homme in the middle of crap country who could cut apart the guns so that they could legally be imported.
Peter and John were gonna throw high bracelet homme or et cable brow charity events and sell the luxury items as feel good stuff that was partially made bracelet homme marque diesel from the metal of guns, the purchase of which, were to help fund the removal of guns from war bracelet homme cuir brun torn parts of Africa. coque iphone 5 bracelet femme simple It was a solid concept if they could get it off the ground. And thankfully bracelet homme enfant moving forward bracelet femme ethnique they didn need to go to Africa itself.
While the watch was years off, the brand was in the planning phase. coque iphone 7 pas cher Their guiding principle was to work with notables from Switzerland who were the best. iphone 11 case amazon/a> You may recall the Fonderie 47 transforming cufflinks (covered here), that were designed by Roland Iten. Now two years later the Fonderie 47 super lux watch is finally here. It was known for a while that it was going to be pretty high end with a target price of about $300,000 or more. Fonderie 47 didn want to bracelet homme focil market the watch but rather to sell it direct to their niche pool of elite customers. Then Zapolski informed me that he was no longer part of Fonderie 47. The press release for this Inversion Principle watches doesn even mention his name. Not really kit bracelet homme sure about the details, but business is business I guess.
I was pleased and excited to see bracelet homme basse that the designer bracelet homme phoenix of the Inversion Principle watch is someone that aBlogtoWatch has covered before, and also someone I known for years: Adrian Glessing. In the past wrap bracelet homme we referred to him as Ideas, and showed off a couple of his cool concept watches here such as the Big Time, and the Toxic Linear. Now he can add the Inversion Principle to his portfolio, which is quite exciting as it was actually produced. The Inversion Principle will be produced by David Canadaux at Du Val Des bracelet homme tres large Dois in Switzerland.
Above the tourbillon is an instant jump, jumping hour indicator. iphone 11 case Below is a retrograde minute counter. coque iphone 7 One bracelet femme or jaune the side of the case as well as on the movement is a power reserve indicator (I like that there are two for some reason). The manually wound movement has about six days of power reserve and nicely mixes traditional aesthetics with a modern feel. Of course there is some AK in the watch which is the rear plate of the movement. Fonderie 47 says that the darker metal piece of the movement uses metal from the destroyed guns. Apparently for each watch they sell they can fund the dinh van bracelet femme destruction of 1,000 AK 47 guns. How does that work exactly The basic idea is that they exchange cash for guns literally buying them from the people of Africa (for your wearing pleasure).
It goes without saying that the Fonderie 47 concept, albeit marketing genius, is controversial. While I am not particularly sensitive, I can imagine that some people might be miffed about wearing a watch with metal from a bijou bracelet femme gun that was likely used to kill people by child soldiers. The brand could retort and say that at least the metal is no longer part of a gun used to kill people by child soldiers, but still. Bad juju, is bad juju The Inversion Principle watch itself is 42mm wide and will be ultra limited to just 20 pieces total. That is 10 pieces in 18k white gold and 10 pieces in 18k red gold.
For what bracelet homme zodiaque its pinterest bracelet homme worth, the concept and message behind the Inversion Principle watch is unique and worth a premium. Fonderie 47 isn just a kind of watch or luxury brand, it is a different type of brand altogether. One that can only exist in the ironically consumptive universe that is ultra high end luxury. The Inversion Principle by is bang banging its way into reality soon, at the price of $350,000 each.
