Our factory direct promise
The CB01 "End of the Machine" is a raw and "naked" watch by design an technical conception. Essential in all its lines and finishes. It has been designed and produced to have the least impact on the environment. This inlcudes the PVD coating process we used to colour the dial on this special version, which is not environmentally damaging.
Only the functionally necessary has been produced. Nothing is superfluous, like it should be for a tool watch.
End of the machine?
To make this limited edition we used stainless steel leftovers from our factory. Repurposing is one of the ways to make watchmaking more sustainable and the CB01 "End of the Machine" integrates this approach for what regards the metal parts and, of course, the movement. Only 8 pcs have been made of the CB01-14060.
When we first approached the project, we thought that
we just had to use recycled materials to succeed.
Soon we’ve realized that a true sustainable project is much more
than that. It's about finding what is needed from an existing “circle”,
transform it into a new “circle” and, finally,
make it ready for its future “circle”.
In fact, to produce in cycles.
"Through this watch, I try to do my job in a more virtuous way. It aims at pushing the watchmaking industry to question its design and production processes, and consider that changes are needed. And possible.
It is a tribute to the women and men whose work contributes to a better future, and an ode to craftsmanship and the people of watchmaking. A concrete step towards a more sustainable watch industry". Cedric Bellon
