Time lapse

Among the few desirable watches for women to wear is the Laps. Launched a little over a year ago by Antonin Mercier (ex-contemporary art), they are inspired by the 1970’s. The shaped dials feature reproductions of works of art, or such materials as 3,000-year-old oak, shagreen, leather or tobacco leaf, and are combined with interchangeable, braided bracelets. From 89 euros.

  • Dial with ancient oak

  • Dial with a portrait of Nakano Takeko
