Freak Diavolo: minute of silence for the late great Rolf Schnyder

The latest iteration of The Freak...with Rolf's signature on the plate attached to the dial at 6. The plate releases the lock on the bezel, which also serves as device to set the time.



The watch is amazing in simplicity...no crown...set the hands by turning the bezel. Wind the watch by turning the rear bezel. No hands, just the bridges, moving to show the time. Freaky!





In memorium of a great personality in watchmaking. May he rest in peace.
