When Jaeger meets Pierre Cardin: playing with codes.

Description

This watch, the PC 109 designed by Pierre Cardin, is the perfect illustration of the French designer 's audacity and imagination. Designed for Jaeger, it breaks with the traditional stylistic codes of watchmaking. It is a metal design object that is worn on the wrist, witness to an era and the extravagance that Cardin could display: Parisian evenings, Courrèges skirts, colorful patterns... But a watch that the we don't wear it in the traditional way. It could be designated as a "driver" watch because the dial, within a rounded steel case, can be read on the side of the wrist. Thus, with their hand on the wheel, the driver can easily read the time, without having to turn their wrist.

Why did Françoise choose her?

Françoise likes these slightly crazy models that are out of the ordinary. Completely unique pieces that you won't see elsewhere and whose design breaks free from what you know. Watches that, although vintage , seem futuristic. It is undoubtedly a watch that bears witness to its era. A rare model that will delight collectors and lovers of unusual watches, with Jaeger quality of course. A timeless piece, typical of the 1970s lines, which must certainly be worn with assertive style. It would go very well with a casual but sober outfit to contrast with it.

History

Launched from 1971 to 1973, the Espace collection marks the collaboration between designer Pierre Cardin and watchmaker Jaeger. It would be inspired by space expeditions, notably that of Yuri Gagarin in 1961. The watches were then made of non-precious materials such as metal, lucite, crystals, etc. All have been designed with a manual movement and present designs playing on geometric volumes whose lines are borrowed from the space universe.
