There are moments in life when a certain feeling creates equity in one’s perception. I like to call this feeling ‘the equilibrium’. It is a feeling very hard to describe. It is about perfection at its higher extension. I often find myself completely emerged in the quest to find it. Its core values resonate deeply with my conception of life. I find it in everyday life and in certain interactions with highly precised and superlative crafted objects.
The perfectly balanced proportions of certain objects combined with sharp and precised laser-cut surfaces, arouse my inner spirit to resonate on a higher level of connectivity with the respective objects. The same level of connectivity I try to uncover in each of the products that I create.
Peren Hintz is a Swiss Made Mechanical timepiece inspired by the pocket Watch received from a Swiss company by one of the first Transylvanian watchmaker, Eugen Hintz(1869-1962).
Mr. Hintz was one of the most respected Transylvanian watchmaker having partnerships with famous brands such as Tellus, Wyler and Junghans where he would commission spare parts to create Watches in his workshop in Fagaras, Transylvania.
The pocket Watch ‘Wyler Eugen Hintz | Fagaras’ was produced in the interwar period by a Swiss Watch manufacturer, Paul Wyler & Cie (Fabrique des Montres Wyler SA), company founded in 1925 who became well known in the watchmaking world thanks to their patent obtained for the invention of the balance wheel protection known as Incaflex.
Because Peren Hintz is an homage brought to one of Transylvania’s most important watchmaker, a rotating disk inspired by the ‘andesite sun dial’ found next to one of the most precise ancient calendar located in Transylvania, is positioned at the 6H Watch subdial. The andesite Sun from Sarmizegetusa Regia, was one of the first Solar cycle measurement tool which served also as an altar for the so called Solar cult.
