designers own words: sometimes we have special occasions when we can simply forget about time and we can devote ourselves to our favorite person or activity.

‘eclissi’ is a reversible watch that implements both needs. on one side it is a chronograph allowing you to tell time, but one can also flip the face whereby you can no longer visualize the time and an engraved message appears, which explicitly states you are not concerned about the passing of time: ‘take your time’, ‘better late than never’, ‘know the value of time’… you may also order your personalized case back through the BREIL website: just specify your favorite phrase to be engraved.
