Mechanical Entropy is the foundation watch from Fiona Krüger’s Chaos collection, featuring the brand's first exclusive caliber: the Chaos movement.
Inspired by the dynamic nature of time passing, Fiona Krüger designed her movement to look like an explosion, developing it in partnership with renowned movement specialist Agenhor.
The whole of the striking movement is on show thanks to the minimalistic case with generous front and back openings and no dial. The movement itself is not fully skeletonised; the openings were drawn as explosions to highlight specific components, the look and position of each component carefully considered in order to create this 3-dimensional mechanical drawing. The design and finishing of every part of the movement was taken into account, from the graphic main-plate and bridges to the decorated hour wheel and barrel of the main-spring.
This explosive mechanism is incased in a slim titanium case with a mix of brushed and polished finishes and crown at 12 o'clock. Metallic hour indices are displayed on the underside of the sapphire and bold shard hands with white lacquer details indicate the time.
The watch is named after the concept of entropy, used in quantum physics to explain the passing of time through the shift from a state of order towards a state of disorder or chaos.
Mechanical Entropy is produced as a limited production per annum (40 pieces total); each piece is carefully crafted in Switzerland.
