JEAN D'EVE's original & inventive Quarta is a fine example of an avant-garde masterpiece!

The JEAN D'EVE Quarta divides the traditional 12-hour cycle into 4 quarter-circles, each covering a 3-hour period. In this way, telling time follows a domino effect!

Since its early beginnings back in 1888 (as Le Phare), JEAN D'EVE has been developing fine timepieces with a unique way of displaying time, exclusive designs & revolutionary innovations. More about the story of JEAN D'EVE on their website: http://jeandeve.ch/en/brand.html

The JEAN D'EVE Quarta divides the traditional 12-hour cycle into 4 quarter-circles, each covering a 3-hour period. In this way, telling time follows a domino effect!

The 1st quarter, at top right, shows 12 - 3 o'clock; the 2nd quarter, at bottom right, shows 3 - 6 o'clock & so on. Whenever an hour hand completes its cycle, it reverts to its starting position as soon as the next hand has moved about a quarter of an hour.

In the photo above, the time on 2nd quarter is about 5:45. As soon as the hand points to 6 o'clock, the hand on the next quarter will begin to move, & will then tell the time in the succeeding hours.
