WORLD PREMIERE: FABERGÉ VISIONNAIRE CHRONOGRAPH, HOME OF THE AGENGRAPHE
A few weeks back, the 20th of February to be exact, Ian Skellern of Quill & Pad unloaded quite the bomb on the Interwebs with a compressive and detailed introduction to the Agengraphe by Agenhor. A significantly re-thought chronograph since — as Ian put it — since the invention of the chronograph.
But what would compel one to make such a bold claim? The answer to that question is quite possibly the only simple one this this entire episode. It’s because Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, the movement-magician that he is, has, in fact, given traditional approaches to chronograph mechanisms a right and good kick in the posterior.
