Papillon d'Or

Andreas Strehler Wrist Watch - Papillon d'Or

The Papillion d’Or has been created to celebrate Andreas Strehler’s 20th anniversary as an independent watchmaker.

Like a butterfly

Papillon is the French name for butterfly, an insect belonging to the order Lepodoptera. A butterfly is light and delicate. But, as it has been around for over 40 million years, it is a very intelligently designed organism.

Like the Papillon d’Or: A large solid gold bridge in the form of a butterfly holds the superbly finished gear train with its two transparent sapphire crystal gear wheels supports the white fired silver dial ring. Delicate yet sturdy.

Andreas Strehler Wrist Watch - TimeShadow

For his eight’s movement to appear in a watch bearing his name, (for other brands, he has designed and constructed many more), Andreas Strehler has designed a watch limited to eight pieces.

The indication of the watch is reduced to the two basic indications of hours and minutes, but with a twist.

The hours are indicated by a black rotating disk, black like the eight ball in the eponymous pool billiards game. This hour disk, finished in wire-cut, turns around a small disk displaying the typical Andreas Strehler butterfly logo.

However, all phase of the moon indications have a common problem:

Andreas Strehler - Sauterelle à Lune perpeétuelle

Designed and manufactured by Andreas Strehler in his workshop in Sirnach, the Lune perpétuelle has a perpetual display of the phase of the moon.

With only four components, Andreas Stehler achieves almost eternity. Only almost, because the Lune perpétuelle’s phase of the moon mechanism does require occasional adjustment. To be quite precise, it requires an adjustment by one day every 14’189.5383 years.

The Sauterelle à Lune perpétuelle by Andreas Strehler is the most precise phase of the moon ever built. And by some margin. Approximately 11’000 to 14’000 years.
