Fl’Ora

The Importance of a Rose

 

FL’ORA

The universe may be mathematical, but it is not always easy to perceive the rules that govern us. Nonetheless, the number of a plant’s leaves is often governed by the Fibonacci Sequence, and the opening of a rose’s petals is determined by the Golden Spiral.

FL’ORA

 

Fl’Ora lies at the junction of two worlds-the world of poetry, of Coleridge, and the world of mathematics, which orders the parts, hands and angles by means of the mechanism.

THE DIAL

The Ora series models are jump-watches, but with a difference: in contrast to other mechanisms, it is the entire dial that indicates the changing hour by jumping thirty degrees. This patented mechanism is the only one of its kind and affords great readability.

THE BACK

One special feature is available in two versions: the automatic movement can be observed through a sapphire crystal, while the Quartz movement reproduces the entire array of the displayed symbols.

COMPLICATION

The first jump-hour displays were seen in the 17th century. The change of hours was effected by a disc under the dial, either as a gradual process or instantaneously. Instantaneous change is obviously a more difficult technique to master. As the height of virtuosity, the dial jumps to effect the change instantaneously on an immobile disc.

FL’ORA IS AN ODE TO THE INVISIBLE

Fl’Ora is also a constant reminder of the marvellous inventiveness of nature. In Italian “ora” means not just “hour”, but also “now”, the raison d’être of a lonely hiatus that defines the present moment and in which the various symbols alternate with the passing hours.

Watches are the stuff of dreams, and Fl’Ora reminds us that we have an unending pageant before our eyes-here a bud, there a flower, both appearing in perhaps the most humble surroundings, and the whole governed by the same vital force.
