Little Venice

Little Venice is our homage to Venice, the city of waterways which has been enchanting Italians and the world alike. By combining its usual minimalist style with a wholly Venetian material, the Briccola, our clock house presents a model which is not merely inspired by Venice, it is indeed Venetian. Used by the gondoliers to find their way through the many canals of the lagoon city, the briccole – wooden poles – suffer, over time, from water and mollusc erosion which, on the one hand, has the merit to turn each briccola into a unique natural sculpture crafted by the lagoon itself but, on the other, it makes it also necessary to substitute them. We have decided to recoup these unique pieces by enshrining them within luxury clock-making as the very essence of the charm and fragility of Venice.
