The Rolex Air King by Seconde Seconde

 By: foversta : May 15th, 2019-13:40
Seconde Seconde is a project led by a young French man. The concept? To replace the second hand of a vintage watch by a symbol which is related to the watch name. But don’t worry: the original hand remains available !  A fun and respectful approach. Let’s take this example: the Rolex Air King! The true air king is the cloud ☁️ don’t you think? 😄


Funny and interesting concept. Thanks for sharing, Fx. [nt]

It reminds me of a scar on a beautiful woman. [nt]

Like if a woman had a small cloud on her face instead of a nose? [nt]

I don't know, that sounds terrifying.

Or a nose on her watch 👃 [nt]

Fun concept - why not?

But I would prefer to do this to a new watch
Vintage pieces deserve some respect ;-) 

Humor added!

Not a bad concept! 

Personally I wouldn't buy a watch with any aftermarket alterations, but at least this one looks better than an iced-out Nautilus, or AP, etc.. A big plus is that the change is reversible ;-) [nt]

That's it. +1. If not reversible, not interesting, for me. [nt]

may be a better match for a cloud

Also a ship portal for the nautilus

Porthole ?..., being a Captain I know about these things :-) [nt]

I actually like this very much! It may be polarising for some, but I dig it. Thanks for this new discovery. :) [nt]

Thanks for sharing, but...

Interesting and innovative concept but frankly, besides the fact that one could get easily bored with the cloud (or the bee for the memovox, or the star wars spaceship for the Zenith) and that you cannot quickly replace a seconds hand on a watch, these watches are clearly over-priced : they can cost more than twice the observed value ! Quite an expensive cloud...
Thanks anyhow for sharing !

That's an important... Detail! [nt]

I really like the watch but would strongly prefer the original seconds hand. [nt]

Pointless and cheap looking...

But people can do what they want with their own watches.
