Audacieuse means Bold... Designed by Andre LeMarquand, the OMAX Spaceman Audacieuse is a gem from the past; its retro-futuristic asymettric case, incomparable!

During his lifetime, Andre LeMarquand was prolific in horological design. His accomplishments later led him to establish the Andre LeMarquand Watch Company, which survives to this day, managed by his son Cedric LeMarquand... more on Andre LeMarquand

"The Audacieuse was a very popular designer watch in the 1970's & also sold under many reputable private labels including Zeno, Fortis, Jules Jurgensen, Jupiter, Omax & Catena, which produced the watch for LeMarquand. All of these can be considered as high-grade  watches & were successfully marketed as such..."
