Anton Suhanov

In 2016, Anton Suhanov, broke into the world of haute horlogerie when he completed his ambitious project–the Black Clock tourbillon table clock. He embedded a clockwork with an impressively large triple-axis tourbillon and that same year, he was awarded the winner at AHCI (Académie Horlogèredes Créateurs Indépendant) Young Talent Competition.

One day, while driving his car to the workshop, Anton was inspired to design a Racer Jumping Hour GMT wristwatch. Starting from the desire to create a one-of-a-kind fusion of horological mechanics and emotions, the structure of the dial has been refined to feature two retrograde hour and minute subdials that dominate its surface. They are located on the left and right and slightly shifted down–exactly for one position on the (imaginary) hour scale of the dial, while the remaining central part of the dial is given away to other pointers. This particular arrangement has historical prototypes, one of them is the dial of the famous Breguet “Marie Antoinette” pocket watch, a lifelong masterpiece of Abraham-Louis, with two retrograde subdials of date and equation of time
