ARTHUR OSKAR STAMPFLI - THE WHEELS OF TIME
LES ROUES DU TEMPS - THE WHEELS OF TIME
In 2013 Arthur Oskar Stampfli shows us a new and fantastic concept of seeing the hours.
With the creation of this innovative piece, both in terms of design and for the movement, AOS presents its "Time Diffuser" called "The Wheel of Time".
AOS - THE WHEELS OF TIME
AOS try to search for a new way of convey the time, during months of research, they compared the different timepieces of the market, in the way of they display the information. In-line movements, already exists and are at the origin of fabulous achievements.
AOS choice is to perform an invisible movement because hidden in the display thereof. The "Wheels of Time" display will be comparable to Tibetan prayer wheels.
TRADITIONAL TIBETAN PRAYER WHEELS:
The traditional Tibetan prayer wheels, consists of a cylinder filled with mantras and freely rotatable about an axis. According to the associated beliefs with this item, operating as a mill beliefs, has the same spiritual value, that to recite the prayer mantra, the prayer is supposed to be spread in the air, as if it were pronounced.
Related with the theory of the mills, where mantras are enclosed in them, and distributed during the rotation, the movement encloses the time, its engine, and diffuse it on its display outside, providing the notion of hours and minutes.
This movement can only be alive, that is to say mechanical. The antagonist-rotating, of the two wheels symbolizes the paradox of the human being, in his research, to control the time, and be released from its constraints.
All pieces can by fully customised with precious metals, diamonds, case colouring and also adjustment of the decoration on the two independent scrolls for hours and minutes creating a unique and individual piece.
