Nouvelle Collection



mais rigoureusement  

OBELUS pays tribute to the golden age of chronograph history. The Retro Chronoscope collection offers a modern interpretation with a retro aesthetic. It features a larger 42mm case, compared to 36/38mm in the 50s and 60s, to cater to modern tastes; while retaining a sober, flat silhouette of the classic vintage watch, true to the original spirit.

A long time ago, it was a small box with a dial and a mechanical movement inside. It was worn to tell the time.

A timepiece, therefore, to watch it go by. Nowadays, all you have to do is turn on a computer, a mobile phone, or even look at the door of a microwave oven, to find out what time it is... The competition is enormous. The time is everywhere.

And the fine inventors of all these highly technological and modern devices had predicted the death of the watch.


We are honoured to share our passion by amplifying the heritage of the "tool watch", while paying tribute to the timeless designs of the past. 


Every month our shop receives new products.
Some of them are only on sale for a limited time. 


Buying unique pieces is buying a piece of the artist: his passion put into the execution of the object, his hours of reflection, his dexterity...
It is a committed, ethical act that encourages a responsible and direct economy.

In the Egypt of the Middle Kingdom, the first hour of the day was called "the shining". And the first hour of the night was called 'the discomfiture of the enemies of Ra'... On the road of time, the Egyptians were the first to name the hours in order to better tame them.

The Nile people had already adopted the division of the day into twenty-four hours, inherited from the Sumerians. The Egyptian priests then invented the first elementary clocks to materialise the passage of time: "shadow clocks", made of a ruler and two squares related to the height of the stars in the sky, which, through skilful calculations, allowed them to establish the passage of the hours. But too complex, they were soon replaced by the gnomon, a simple stick planted in the ground whose shadow, rotating according to the earth's rotation, gave the time of day on a graduated support, the sundial was born. It reigned for four millennia and was still used to set the time on railway clocks at the beginning of the 20th century...

The only "hitch" was that this first universal time-measuring instrument could not work at night.
