Double Heroes Athens Watch Launches Classic Samourai ‘samurai Single Time Watch’

Athens, a Swiss watch famous for its superb watchmaking technology, once again combined the function of the minute repeater and the action puppet device to launch the ‘Samurai minute repeater watch’. The artisans of Athenaeum used Japanese prints to present the famous duel between two legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojiro. Athenaeum is looking for unique cultural stories from around the world as inspiration for watch design. This time, inspired by the battle between two famous samurai warriors widely circulated in Japanese folk, the new work ‘Samurai Single Time Watch’ was launched.

┬áThe Athens watch ‘Samurai Single Timekeeping Watch’ is equipped with the UN-610 self-winding movement. The watch will tell the hour when it crosses the hour and half, and it can also tell the time according to preference. Whenever the timekeeping system is activated, the warrior on the plate-the active figure (Jaquemart) will wield a sword duel. On the left side of the dial is the famous 17th-century Japanese samurai Miyamoto Musashi holding a long and a short sword. On the right side of the dial is his old enemy and the most powerful opponent Sasaki Kojiro. The finely carved design on the dial is a famous duel between the two at Ganryu Island. It is rumored that Miyamoto Musashi was an outstanding strategist. He deliberately took a boat to arrive late, making the long-awaited Sasaki Kojiro mentally unstable, and finally defeated his opponent and became famous.

┬áThe Athenian ‘Samurai Questionnaire’ is made of 18K rose gold or platinum. Each edition is limited to 18 pieces. Both versions are decorated with hand-carved dolls in rose or gray gold. Athens Watch is one of the few manufacturers that masters the technology of moving puppets. It is also one of the leaders in the early revival of watch time technology. It is also undoubtedly a creative master of mechanical watchmaking.
