Baselworld 2013. Antoine Martin Slow Runner.

Switzerland is well known for its innovation and when it comes to Watch Industry, we can find very innovative Brands. At Baselworld we met Antoine Martin, a true luxury Watch manufacturer based in Alpnach. We discovered an amazing innovation called the SLOW RUNNER Collection. And this was one of the great surprises of the tradeshow.

This is a world premiere. For the first time, a low frequency wrist watch is presented at Baselworld. 7’200 beats per hour, which means a 1hz movement. One of the outstanding details is a 24mm balance in diameter that takes the center of this outstanding design.
