me the Masques was the watch that blew every one away even those who did not like the watches in pictures! "Exceptional" was the word the most often used!

Watches with a soul.

I agree with you , and more especially as it was the first time yesterday evening i was seeing them, to have also the opportunity of wearing them (unfortunately, not too long enough...).

One word for me: unique, in all aspects!

same here... I really didn't like them at first, but the more I look at them and the more I like them. Although I really like them as a work of art, I am not sure if I would want one on my wrist - they are not really my style... I would prefer to wear the Sputnik model.

My preference

Beyond any other timepiece

Imho, these watches are beyond any other timepieces. I'm not even sure that "watch" or "timepiece" is the right word to decribe them. They are a mix of craft, art, orology and poetry. They are animated (literal meaning). The one that has a bigger impact on me is the Mahongwe mask, because this primitive art has been a permanent inspiration for modern artists. So for me this is the perfect link between past & present.
