Jean Marcel Uhrenkollektion –
Form and Function – both in one exceptional time piece. Exceptional the cushion-shaped case body together with the sportive-classic round tachymeter bezel, creating an exciting yet unobtrusive look. But the INDIANAPOLIS LAPTIMER is also exceptional in functionality. No other watch movement allows you to take single lap times and total time simultaneously. Finally, it also comes with exceptional accuracy, with a maximum deviation of 10 seconds – not per day, per year! – which is guaranteed by the included Chronometer certificate issued by the prestigious C.O.S.C. institute.
The Mythos II, like the originally constructed Mythos collection, is a unique combination of a sporty character and the timeless elegance of a high-quality mechanical wristwatch. The models are fitted with a unidirectional turning bezel and are water-resistant up to 30 atm. The SWISS MADE movements ETA 7750 and ETA 2836-2 with their high-grade finishing and blue screws can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. Wearing solid, comfortable stainless steel bracelets or resistant rubber straps, the Mythos II models are a comfortable timepiece and the ideal watch for any occasion.
PURE ELEGANCE in 18-carat rose gold - The name says it all with the Jean Marcel 35 DIXIEME. With a total height of only 3.5 mm, this watch is one of the thinnest in the world. This flatness was made possible by the exclusive movement of the company "ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse" with a total height of 0.98 mm. The sun-brushed dials in night blue or tobacco brown are protected by a sapphire crystal and contrast easily with the elegant hands, which are the same colour as the case.
Plain, simple, straight-lined – and at the same time, sophisticated and intriguing. The QUADRUM III fits any occasion and any wrist. Its long vertical combined with the slim width and only 11mm flatness makes it never too large and never too small. Premium Swiss Made movements do their job reliably and unobtrusively, but with an extra in function. Perfectly aligned dial and strap colors complete the elegance of these high size time pieces.
Fascinatingly flat watches are one of Jean Marcel's particular strengths. The new Optimum collection, which celebrates watch minimalism at its finest with its extremely slim cases, also follows in this tradition. With a total height of only 7.5 millimetres for the three-hand automatic watches and just 5.6 millimetres for the Optimum réduit, they are each one of the flattest mechanical wristwatches of modern times. Remarkable for this extremely low height are the two sapphire crystals and the water resistance up to 5 bar.
Sporty-elegant, dynamic, and precise - the cases of the SPLENDOR collection captivate with their unusual shapes and multiple surfaces. Shiny polished, satined and sandblasted as well as PVD-coated elements create tension and yet complement together harmoniously. Our three-hand models [of the automatic watches] have a unidirectional rotating bezel. Here, Jean Marcel's quality standards are immediately perceptible as the rotating ring is clearly defined and precisely clicks into place in one of 120 positions. The Clou de Paris decorated chronograph based on the ETA Valjoux 7761 caliber has a fixed bezel. With this rare Swiss movement, the date is not displayed in a window -as is usually the case- but by a fourth central hand and can be easily read thanks to the large, highly contrasted numbers on the bezel. The chronograph is operated via the black PVD-coated pushers, which are seamlessly integrated into the case body. The SPLENDOR SEVEN DAYS models display the date at the 9 o'clock position which enables a particularly large display of the weekday at the 3 o'clock position.
Classy, mechanical, special, and elegant – the ARTEM collections presents very appealing design, eye-catching at a second glance. The entire case is made up of smoothly rounded geometry, with a double bevel on the bezel which is resembled by the bandfix lugs. Whether you go for a self-winding or a manual caliber, or you choose a chronograph – each ARTEM may pride itself on being one of the very slimmest-in-class, with its slimness being further enhanced by its sleek contour. As is usual with Jean Marcel, choose from a range of highly sought-after masterpieces of Swiss watchmaking art. These vintage, rare self-winding and hand-wound calibers shine in staggering beauty and most elaborate polishings, logically calling for a number of skeletonized dial designs. The ARTEM collection is completed by an exquisite selection of high-grade straps and bracelets.
When high performance is not enough - the ADRENALIN models render even more. The unique 200 Hz PowerDrive technology triggers 200 hand jumps per second enabling time displays that were inconceivable in the world of analog wristwatches so far. This caliber made it possible to construct a chronograph able to measure times accurately to one hundredth of a second. But even the usual time display is of legendary accuracy with a deviation of maximum 20 seconds per year. The sporty case of the ADRENALIN with the brushed surfaces and the bevelled, polished edges is ideally complemented by the metal bracelet which is perfectly adapted to the housing design. Alternatively, you can acquire the sturdy rubber strap of which the edge and seam match optimally to each color of the dials.
With PRETIOSUM, Jean Marcel has launched a new collection of fine mechanical time pieces that may justly already be called 'classics of the future'. Historical design features like the 'coin-rim' bezel and the 'balloon crown' have been combined with slim, streamlined lugs, giving this homage to glorious watchmaking days an excitingly up-to-date touch. Like in most Jean Marcels, the PRETIOSUM cases have been optimized for maximal slimness, reaching possibly record-breaking height dimensions in spite of the included complications such as the power reserve indication with integrated moon phase and small seconds indicator.
With its collection "TANTUM", Jean Marcel presents eight noble mechanical wristwatches in an extremely flat stainless steel case. Named after the Latin word for "only", it features two automatic chronographs with an overall height of only 11 mm, four three-hand automatic watches with date – and an extremely slim 8 mm total height – and, as a special highlight, two hand-wound models that are only 6 mm high. Due to the minimized overall height of the watch design, the timepieces in the new TANTUM collection can therefore be regarded as the flattest models in their respective market segments.
The OCEANUM collection uniquely combines the dynamic character of a rugged diver's instrument with the timeless elegance of a fine mechanical time piece. Looking through the sapphire crystal back, the owner will marvel at the incorporated movements with their high-grade polishings and blued screws, like for example the ETA caliber 2894-2. Only the extremely flat constructive design of this caliber facilitates highest water resistance in spite of the elegant look and feel of the watch. Carefully selected leather straps, waterproof Nytech and rubber straps as well as premium metal bracelets allow the OCEANUM models to be comfortably worn, thus making them an ideal accompaniment in any situation.
Swiss Made chronometer with exceptional accuracy: The new COSC-tested ACCURACY in its current size with 41 mm diameter and six dial variants. The "Officially Certified Chronometer" in apricot designation points out the high-precision Swiss watch technology: Only movements with a maximum rate deviation less than a second per month will be assembled into the ACCURACY stainless steel case. The curved aluminium silicate glass produced in Germany offers outstanding optical quality and has an extremely high compressive stress on the surface of up to 900 megapascal, which is 9 times higher than for a normal mineral glass. As with numerous other Jean Marcel models, the Mystery-effect shows as if by magic and reveals the JM brand logo. In a secretive way, this points out the authenticity of this watch that is limited to 300 pieces. The Accuracy collection will be available from July 2019 on.
With the SOMNIUM collection, Jean Marcel was able to create firm and water-resistant, yet stunningly flat mechanical time pieces, not least through using some of the topmost renowned Swiss movements. Calibre JM H05 on the base of ETA Peseux 7001, one of the slimmest mechnical movements ever built, facilitates a total case height of 6.8 mm only, at 10 ATM water resistancy. Also, Calibre JM A10, base ETA 2894-2, makes a case height of 11.2 mm a possibility, creating one of the slimmest automatic chronographs worldwide. The fine satined cases with slim bezels further enhance the slim impression and give way to the wide, prominent dials, combining distinctive design with surpreme legibility.
In an unprecedenced way, the MYTHOS combines a modern and sportive character with the timelessly classical elegance that JM is renowned for. Unprecedenced like the unique Carbon insertions screwed on each side of the case – on the 9 o'clock side there also is a little screwed-on plate which indicates the individual number of each one of the 300 items world wide. Unprecedenced are also the multi-layered dials with functional indications in interesting configurations.
ULTIMATE SLIMNESS – special components, an extremely slim "réduit" version Swiss movement, and a sophisticated case construction made it possible to design a watch no thicker than 3.9 millimeters without compromising stability or water resistance. The extraordinary slimness and light weight provide unprecedented wearing comfort and make the NANO the perfect companion for any occasion.
With ÉMOTION, Jean Marcel presents a fascinating new collection of Ladies' time pieces. The round or rectangular-shaped cases are equally well designed into detail. The gentle double rounding on the bezel is resembled in the case lugs, as well as subtly in the shape of the crown. The Émotion collection offers a great variety of dials made out of special materials, with corresponding straps, both in classical-elegant colors as well as in exciting lively pastel tones.
The MELIOR collection offers reliable and precise time keepers in an interesting stainless steel case which features the typical 'Tonneau' shape on the outside but a straight rectangular sapphire crystal on the dial opening. The dials of the collection vary in styles ranging between sportive looks, classical elegance or surprisingly outstanding designs. The watch enthusiast's choice is completed by a wide range of special wrist bands made out of different materials.
The three-part case of the PALMARIUM presents itself in fascinating contrasts of brushed and polished surfaces or interesting bicolor effects. The extraordinary arrangement of indications on the dials has already become part of the Jean Marcel signature. One subtle detail will only be visible for a blink of an eye: breathing upon the crystal will reveal a JM logo which is worked into the anti-reflective coating. To connoisseurs and collectors this is more than a detail, as it documents beyond doubt the authenticity of the time piece.
After the last pieces of the strictly limited Quadrum editions had been sold out to watch lovers all around the world, the new QUADRUM II represents a worthy successor, a consistent further development as well as an excitingly new watch creation. Through labouros movement modifications, it has been made possible to reinterpret the functional aspect of these time pieces in a unique way.
Most watch enthusiasts love classic elegance as much as sporty dynamics – hardly any watch collection creates such a perfect synthesis out of both flavors as the ASTRUM. The three-part cases with stepped bezels shine in a many-faceted look of polished and satined surfaces. A range of wrist bands made of massive steel, natural rubber, finest calf hide, and genuine stingray leather complete the wealth of ASTRUM model variants.
The ULTRAFLACH collection is Jean Marcel's latest proof of mastery in watchmaking. Using special components and exceptionally flat movements made it possibe to create watch cases that are no more than 4.5 millimeters in height. However, the ultimately unique fact about the ULTRAFLACH is that its flatness has been reached without compromising stability or water resistancy.
Each model of the PLANUM collection is a little masterpiece of watchmaking art. The shaply cases are partly available with exhibition back or skeleton dial, revealing the elaboratly factured mechanical movement with special decorations like engraved ornaments or blued screws. A timepiece every watch enthusiast can be proud of.
