More than just an entrepreneur, Michel Jordi is a standout personality. This watchmaker’s son, born in 1948 in Grenchen studied marketing and management — first in Switzerland and thereafter in England, prior to spending some time in Japan at age 23. Michel Jordi was founded in 1988 in Geneva and one year later, in 1989, the company became famous when they launched the collection “Spirit of Switzerland”. In December of 2004 Michel Jordi released another collection “Twins,” which was a unique and innovative watch. The watch opens like a fan thanks to the “Twist-lock” system. That represented a true novelty in watchmaking, becoming the first watch that opened this way and boasting two time zones and movements with complications, including the world’s smallest mono-pusher chronograph movement. This innovation was highly acclaimed in the United States, in Europe, in Russia and in Asia. The owners of these masterpieces include the King of Spain, Juan Carlos or the former king of Saudi Arabia. The lot here offered is a massive exponent of the limited edition Twin—Chronographe Manuel Monopulsant. Manufactured in white gold with a solid case and double dial, one featuring the single-button chronograph, while the second dial is for second time zone, power reserve, date and moon phases.
