Numbers

From Bereve -

And just who is Bereve?  Well a fairly new effort coming out of Chiasso, and focused on offering something fairly different.

The dial is a pretty wild concoction, per Bereve -
Fine silver 999, Enamel Grand Feu – Champlev√©, twenty colors with Ugo Nespolo’s opera “Numbers”.

So for those of you out there not fully dialed-in to the art world, Ugo Nespolo is, per Wikipedia -

Ugo Nespolo (born 29 August 1941 in MossoBiella) is an Italian painter and sculptor, particularly known for his experimental films, his applied arts works and his artistic collaborations in advertising, theatre and literature.

But this is more than just a nice looking dial.  Under the hood, the Vaucher 3002 keeps things moving on time, with a minimalist display of hours and minutes.  And I have to say, I dig it!
