KB2 LEBRU X SILBERSTEIN

In March 2021, French designers Philippe Lebru and Alain Silberstein joined forces to launch the Kontwaz Bauhaus 2 (KB2) clock; a fun, refreshing co-creation. Its dial, hands and various other components play on the primary colours and geometrical shapes that make up Alain Silberstein's inimitable style - and the basis of his international success. Inspired by Philippe Lebru's iconic Pop Up clock, it is equipped with his famous UTINAM movement. A fine example of Nouvelle Horlogerie with a "French Touch"!

Limited to 88 pieces, KB2 is fully developed and crafted by the UTINAM manufacture, located in Besançon, in the heart of France's watchmaking region

Description


The “KB2” comes from Besançon in Franche-Comté (France), in the Franco-Swiss territory of which the mechanical watchmaking and mechanical art heritage was registered in 2020 as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO. Fully developed and crafted by the UTINAM manufacture, at the heart of the French watchmaking capital, this distinguished contemporary clock is one of the foremost standard-bearers for this prestigious international label.

The Creator

LEBRU X SILBERSTEIN

For more than 30 years, Philippe Lebru and Alain Silberstein have been two of the not-to-be-missed figures of French mechanical watchmaking. Philippe, founder and director of the UTINAM Besançon clock manufacture, is an artist and multi-award-winning inventor whose subversive, unbridled creativity brought forth three icons of contemporary pendulum clockmaking: “Hortence”, “Lala” and “Pop Up”. Alain, an internationally renowned watch designer, was one of the founding fathers of Nouvelle Horlogerie in the ‘80s and ‘90s. His emblematic leading models, such as the Krono Bauhaus and his tourbillons, are gaining value among connoisseurs and collectors. The two men met a few years ago at a trade salon in Geneva. They share the same enthusiasm and the same determination to shift the lines, to such a point that the collaboration between these two free-thinkers became a must.
