The Mexican Revolutionary
Creating something for an exclusive client to engage her is a daunting task. The Unnamed Society certainly belongs to this sphere, which fulfills the desires of the super rich. A company that covers the most professional inventors, craftsmen, designers who produce art objects for an exclusive clientele. One of the latest pieces came from a collaboration with the Swiss master of clocks L’Épée and was inspired by the Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa.
The task of The Unnamed Society is to present and create art objects that can surprise even the most privileged individual. His latest work together is "The Diamond", a gem-covered turret table clock that symbolizes the rarity of every moment. Her ethos is primarily about "carpe diem" or a willingness to "seize the day." In creating "The Diamond", The Unnamed Society drew on the support of Swiss watchmaker Heritage, L’Épée, and the Swiss studio Salanitro, which specializes in the field of gemstones for haute horlogerie. It took 140 hours and another 300 hours of careful gem setting by six masters in Geneva.

"The Diamond" was presented in December 2020 at the ART in Time gallery in Monaco for samples of Haute horological works and collectors. received very well. Although I usually write about the magazine in the context of high jewelry, it amazes me how there is still something new in the creative field with so many extraordinary talents. Diamond table clocks with a revolver according to everyone's taste do not have to be inspiring, but it is a willingness to dream about something unique and bring it to fruition.
