The artists of Les Millionaires have created another masterpiece for Baselworld 2013: Poseidon, the watch for sailors, conquerors and globetrotters. This is a limited edition of 88 pieces worldwide with a compass on the glass so that you never lose your way.


With its magical details, the “Poseidon” by Les Millionaires seduces the wearer of this artistic timepiece, limited to 88 pieces worldwide. A centrally mounted compass floats above the case and ensures that you’re always on the right course, while an antique nautical chart of the Caribbean from the pirate era adorns the dial, where the hour hand in the shape of Poseidon’s trident makes its rounds.

A centrally mounted compass floating over the case ensures that you’ll always be headed in the right direction. The mini-case of the compass is shielded so that the magnetism cannot influence the mechanics of the automatic movement beneath the dial.
