David Candaux’s latest creation, the DC6 Black Phantom, could easily adorn the wrist of Marvel’s Black Panther superhero.
The watch’s powerful black guilloche dial frames an inclined tourbillon, two-handed timekeeper and power reserve; all housed in a strong and lightweight titanium and carbon case.
Inside is a handmade chronometer-tested hand-wound movement with 287 components.
Its double barrel system provides 55 hours of power reserve.
The watch has no crown at 3 o’clock. Instead it has what D.Candaux describes as a magic crown that is integrated almost flush into the bottom of the case so that it preserves the harmonious curves of the timepiece.
D.Candaux watches are made in very small quantities, and their rarity adds to their appeal to customers such as leading German tennis professional Alexander Zverev, who recently purchased a DC6 Solstice in blue.
Boxer Demetrius Andrade the three-time world champion and current WBO middle weight champion also recently purchased a DC6 Solstice in orange.
“David Candaux’s relentless pursuit of functionality without compromise in finishing or complication Is what has drawn many athlete clients to the watchmaker,” the company says.
