A year prior, Alexandre Meerson dazzled us when dispatching its image, with an exquisite first piece, all around planned and completed, with a pleasant development, combined with genuine good old style that must be felt in the substance, when you tie the watch on your wrist (something we truly welcome you to do). For sure, for a first endeavor, the Alexandre Meerson Altitude Premiere and Officer really satisfied us. Just a year after, it’s time to broaden the assortment with a very surprising watch, extraordinarily planned once more. Here is the sporty Alexandre Meerson D15 MK-1 GMT.
While the Alexandre Meerson Altitude Premiere and Officer are rather little, thin and cautious watches (anyway with a wind), the new watch planned and fabricated by Alexandre Meerson plays on a very surprising level. Unquestionably, the DNA of the brand is disciple in a portion of the plan signs, however in the nature of the subtleties; something that the two watches share. Plainly, this isn’t a default. Albeit being a youthful brand, Meerson demonstrates its capacity to make various watches, to design an assortment and not to simply cook over and over similar thoughts by just changing a little fixing. This new D15 MK-1 GMT is a Meerson however not in view of its plan but since it has similar qualities as the principal assortment, the Altitude .
The new Meerson watch is lively, huge, vigorous and fearless. Solid plan and thoughtfulness regarding subtleties are two fundamental targets for Alexandre (author & CEO), something that happens from this D15 MK-1. The case measure 44mm and is settled on in a decision of evaluation 5 titanium (that can be ADLC covered on extraordinary solicitation) or in 18k dim gold, both for an energetic look. This sort of huge distance across is compensated by a somewhat thin profile, along with bended hauls and caseback that will effortlessly acclimate to the wrist (again some charming subtleties). The plan is solid. While the principal assortment was circumspect and refined, this Alexandre Meerson D15 MK-1 GMT is intentionally intense. Simply take a gander at these etched hauls, substituting brushed surfaces and cleaned angles – and no under 10 aspects. The case is likewise not that traditional with its attentive octagonal shape (indeed, the case is round with four level surfaces on each flanks and between the hauls). This is a very flighty plan – however not too unorthodox, as Meerson needs to keep an old style approach of watchmaking.
As you’ve presumably saw, the case highlights two pushers at 2 and 4, much the same as a chronograph – however the D15 MK-1 isn’t a chronograph yet a GMT/traveller’s watch. On the dial are shown the hours, minutes and seconds on the focal pivot, just as a subsequent time-region, by means of a long and skeletonized hand, appearing differently in relation to a red tip. The two pushers are made to change the 12-hour hand in reverse and forwards by 1-hour increases and the 24-hour hand is worked from the crown, making this watch a legitimate GMT/UTC watch and not an office-watch. The traditional hands are made to show the current/neighborhood time-region and the GMT hand will assist you with following your home time.
The dial likewise includes an evening/day marker at 9 and a date showed in the sub-dial at 6. The Alexandre Meerson D15 MK-1 GMT is accessible in 3 dial tones: dark, dim blue or shimmering white. This dial may look straightforward from the start yet look further and it uncovers a few subtleties after a nearby investigation and a rich 3-dimensionnal impact – because of a few stages (the focal part is recessed, the 2 sub-dial are significantly more recessed) and indented numerals – you could undoubtedly think about a sandwich development at first.
Behind the caseback, we find again a similar development as the Altitude assortment , which means an exceptionally pleasant type sourced from the Parmigiani-owned Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier – not the most exceedingly terrible provider to be completely forthright. In any case, this base development is a period just one, implying that the Alexandre Meerson D15 MK-1 GMT adds a GMT module from Dubois-Depraz on the dial side. The finish is spotless and lovely, with Geneva Stripes on the extensions, round graining on the principle plate, cleaned slanted points and cleaned screw heads.
As regular with Meerson, the D15 MK-1 GMT will offer customization prospects: it is accessible in a decision of three dial tones (True Blue, Silvered White, Eternity Black) with various bespoke combinations including Black Titanium ADLC, Titanium, Gray Gold in a decision of silk and cleaned wraps up. This games traveller’s watch is waterproof to 100 m/10 ATM. It will be evaluated at €15.900. More subtleties on the committed page on Meerson.com .
