Parisan watch mod shop Seconde/Seconde/’s founder Romaric André likes to add modern touches to vintage, smaller diameter watches. While he chooses mostly older timepieces with some patina, he has Massena Labs on his speed dial for more modern creations. His art involves changing out the second hand with a playful modern icon (Millennium Falcon, Windows cursor, paper airplane, beanie hat), and each one has a simple “S” for his brand. They’re actually made by France’s oldest watch hands manufacturer, which reflects André’s respect for the original pieces, and he even saves the OEM second hand from the watch and puts it in a glass vial to send to the customer along with the modded watch. All of his projects use only pre-1990 watches, all with cases smaller than 37mm. Models include Omega Chronostop, Rolex Air-King, and even a Patek Philippe Calatrava. These little works of art for your wrist are very exclusive, and they bring a brilliant contrast no one has ever thought of… until now.
