There is a lot of information on this site specifically and on the Purists about this watch and its variations. Several members here are owners as well. Do a search on the site for 47111 and you'll find a ton of links. BTW in looking up this reference I came across this delightful post. Ahhh, we were all younger once!
Here's something else from our fearless leader!

I had never seen the old manufacture of VC before I came across this post. I recognize you and Alberto of course. I had met M. Bulle in 2006 at the new Manufacture. BTW, is tha Clément in the photo? Regards, Joseph

Wow, very very interesting article, I will read it more carefully during the weekend... These days it seems fashionable to make "add-up time-tellers": Urwerk, RJ, etc. but call me old-fashion, I think that "arms up" ancient figure is fun and easy to read on the go!

As far as I know, no watch company ever designed a wrist watch with this concept except Van Cleef and Arpels with their ballerina watch in which the 2 halves of the "tutu" rise to give the time (no jokes please...we're very serious here LOL!) They were excluvily pocket watches with some brilliant variations on the concept. JB

Thomas Prescher made Bras en l'Air  wrist watches but can't blame you for having your eyes on the tutu cheeky both photos courtesy of PuristsPro

Fascinating. You learn something every day. On reflection, I guess you might consider the Mercator a "semi" bras en l'air type watch. Regards, Joseph
