Ludwig Oechslin & the MIH Watch  0 Comments


The MIH watch was designed by Christian Gafner with its annual calendar engineered by by Ludwig Oechslin and made into reality by Paul Gerber. A deviously simple looking watch with the most austere look and finish with almost no sense of luxury - from its unpolished titanium case and buckle to its silicone rubber strap. Serious horologists - know and are familiar - with the names of Gafner, Oeschlin and Gerber. All of whom contributed their time and energy into this watch which was created to develop funding for the Musee International D'Horologerie or the International Museum of Horology.

The MIH watch has been featured on this blog several times and unashamedly both an owner of one and openly supporting this watch for both its purpose as well as appreciating the design and engineering behind it.

As such, when Mr Oeschlin visited Singapore as part of the UN team last month, I was very pleased to have the privilege to photograph Mr Oeschlin with my watch. 

The production numbers of this watch continues to be very small and sold only at the sole authorised dealers in Switzerland - Embassy.
