FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON
GUSTAVE & cie offers you a journey from the Earth to the Moon with its collection of 12-hour single-hand watches assembled in France. Thanks to the astronomical complication of the movement, the dial indicates the phase of the moon at all times. More than a watch, the creators offer you a real space escape, introducing you to the lunar influences listed in a notebook delivered with each watch.
Each of the watches is accompanied by a “Moon Stories” booklet written by the brand’s creators. They offer you an introduction to lunar influences.
Immerse yourself in this fascinating universe and wear a watch on your wrist that will remind you, on a daily basis, of the importance of time and of this star.
A NEW READING OF TIME…
The single-hand concept is a remedy against the obsession with leaking time and a wonderful way to retain it and change one’s philosophy of life… Simplicity is privileged: minutes and seconds slip away to make way for a single hand . Each line of the dial indicating 5 minutes, it becomes easy to read the time to within a few minutes.
Each GUSTAVE & cie watch model pays tribute to an illustrious Frenchman. Our “Georges” collection is a dedication to the Parisian director and illusionist Georges Méliès. At the origin of the first cinematographic special effects, this trained magician invented special effects and laid the foundations of modern cinema. In 1902, he produced his masterpiece, “Le Voyage dans la Lune”. Yes, the first science fiction film is French! In an emblematic scene, we see a team of astronauts projected by a cannon into the eye of the moon…
But the first name “Georges” will be attached to this mythical star for a second time thanks to a Burgundian event. In May 1971, the Senator-Mayor of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Bernard Barbier gave astronaut David Scott a few bottles of Cuvée Terre-Lune 1969 wine. Two months later, the astronaut placed a label in a crater of this Bourgogne and baptized it Cratère Saint-Georges.
