The Frederic Jouvenot Helios Carbon (w. Specs)

Ten years ago, Robin reported on the rise of a young indie artist Frédéric Jouvenot with his award-winning Helios watch and his timepiece. Guided by the sundial, the oldest tracking system, Helios has 12 cone-shaped clocks that rotate from the center of the clock to rotate to indicate the time. The most recent version of the Helios affiliate Solar Deity and Frederic Jouvenot Helios Carbon, a miniature 88-piece model with a standard jump clock display and 12-dimensional pyramids made of shiny carbon separating hour cones.

The Solar Deity collection consists of four solar models, all of which feature a unique 24-hour Jouvenot-like solar system. Helios is depicted as the Greek god of the sun, described in legend as wearing a sun hat and driving a celestial chariot. Now with the integration of the pyramids on the dial, Jouvenot pays homage to the ancient Egyptian sunndials as pillars.

Like other men in the Solar Deity group, the Frederic Jouvenot Helios Carbon case is 44 mm wide and 13mm long. Made of titanium with DLC black coating, the large screen features open signatures with 12 squares mounted on a bezel with circular pyramids inside them. The polished surface of the bezel and macaseband differs from the polished surface of the lugs. Dial and caseback are protected by sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment.

Evidence of this clock is the Jouvenot form of 12 hours represented around the sun. Daylight is represented by golden light, while night time is darkened by a bright light. Counting time is easy, with minutes set on a gray center disc with large white numbers and indicated by a round white arrow. New to this clock is the presence of 12 black carbon-shaped pyramids placed in the center of the clock every hour. A broken object that is difficult to work at such a small scale, marble lines of composite materials mean that no two pyramids are alike.

In addition, the pyramids emphasize three dial forms. Interestingly, the small pyramids are attached to a dial with visible peaks at the top. Larger than the straps that can be seen on the nocturnal face on the solar panels, they contribute to the sound of the watch in the industry.

Two years of R&D and several patents protect the jumping time that shows the singing of Helios Carbon. The most unique feature of the 100-segment jumpers is that they are enclosed in a 12mm capsule in the center of the Sun-shaped note. The hand-painted ornaments, made entirely by Frédéric Jouvenot, reveal fine-grained finishes, including twisted and polished edges on large plates and bridges as well as the decoration of the Côtes de Genève. The amount of screw-adjusted beat is 28,800vph, and the power saving is 50 hours.
