Thomas Prescher comes to town

The Tempusvivendi line are 43 mm in diameter, but can also be made at 39 mm on request. Dials are customizable and he can even work with a stone that you provide. There is a button on the crown which toggles the hands in posing mode (12:59) or time telling mode. For instance, the samurai below is in time telling mode, while the crane is in posing mode. Base movement is a heavily modified ETA 2824.

The black dials are onyx, red and blue dials are enamel, one of the geishas is mother of pearl, and the falcon dial is brushed white gold.

Not only are the rotor, plates, and bridges engraved, but also the wheels. His engraver is still experimenting, so you will see different patterns on the wheels and bridges.

Single axis tourbillon in 43mmx43mmx15mm square case. The entire line of tourbillons have the theme of “three”. Three watches, three subdials, triangular guilloche pattern, triangular engraving pattern on the back plate, etc. The back plates and bridges are gold plated, not solid (he did not have faith in the material strength of solid gold). The case shape evolves from a square single axis tourbillon, to a TV shape for the double axis (a blend of round and square), to a round shape for the triple axis.

Double axis tourbillon pocketwatch. There is also a wristwatch version, but he did not bring it.
