Vangarde Tempo Théorie Skeleton w/Off-Center hands

This is the Vangarde Tempo Théorie, a new limited edition timepiece with a Swiss made 7750 based skeleton movement. Perhaps the coolest elements of this timepiece, aside from the openworked movement, are the hands. Machined from solid alloy in aluminum, magnesium and silicon (and featuring Superluminova inserts), the hands are skeletonized and uniquely shaped. They are off-center mounted, resulting in a very distinct way of telling the time (you have to watch the video to fully understand). "The hour and minute hands are opposed, overlap, intersect, are juxtaposed, while the counter hands complete this design even more complex kinetic whole. All these combinations are an architectural structure similar to a polymorphic array in motion, moved by the mechanical energy of a spring. The visual is confusing and encourages curiosity, while remaining perfectly legible."
