Driver’s Watch

Phenomen’s first model, Axiom, seeks to highlight the brand’s French creativity, asserting its DNA in a blend of technical prowess and style. As a début watch, it serves as an initial demonstration, presented as the foundation stone or starting-point of Phenomen’s emergence.


Axiom 02

Automotive DNA...

Axiom embodies the ultimate French watch for car-lovers. Producing the watchmaking equivalent of supercars, it stands in a long tradition of “driver’s watches”, made especially for racing drivers. The main aim of such watches was to provide the time on driver’s wrists, without them having to take their eyes off the road – the reason why authentic driver’s watches all feature an inclined time display.

...and horology DNA

The case is unusually complex, obliging the mechanism to be located at a higher level than normal, with the time displayed as though in an amphitheatre. This architecture results in a distinctive visual sensation, with spectacular staging of iconic mechanical components such as the balance wheel and escapement wheel.
