Geometric reduction: just a circle. Technical simplification: no lugs. Simplified reading: hour, minute, no seconds, no indices, "to situate oneself in time" without seeking precision to the exact second. And to emphasize the spatial dimension of time — "to situate oneself in time" — the hands are suspended on transparent discs.
Geometric reduction, but ethical maximization: the entire watch head is manufactured in Switzerland, with suppliers from the cantons of Geneva, Neuchâtel, and Jura — all names can be found on Oligo's website. Olivier Gaud has also pushed the sustainability aspect to its fullest extent: cases made from Swiss recycled steel in a short supply chain; a strap manufactured in Italy in collaboration with ColaReb, using vegan materials without PVC; and even the packaging, produced in Geneva from recycled and recyclable materials.
Label Noir has done what it had to do: showcase everything that black is capable of offering. The case is black, the dial is black, but that's just the starting point. Because black is not a color; it's a shade. Shades. A palette of shades, which the eye of the watchmaker Emmanuel Curti renders in the full range of the craft's possibilities.
The case treatment, microblasted and finished in black ADLC, highlights the extreme minimalism of the watch. The black lacquer on the dial opens up the architecture, like the porthole of an experimental aircraft from which one would observe a black disco Milky Way, black and vibrant under the 24,000 facets of gold flakes.
The two hands remind you that it's a watch. The two logos signify that it's a capsule creation.
