THE BEGINNING OF A LEGEND

 

The Master Watchmakers at the dawn of the XXth century witnesses to the origin of the true wristwatch, better adapted for military use than the pocket watch.

 

It is due to the inspiration of the most glorious pieces of watchmaking of that time that the MAD MINUTE was created, the elegant military watch bearing all the progress that the 21st century has brought to the watch industry.

 

Designed entirely in France, the fruit of a long period of development to achieve a perfect balance of architecture and mechanics, AXIOM is proud to present the avant-garde watch that is the MAD MINUTE.

THUNDER OF METAL

 

Revolutionary.

 

No other term could better describe the extraordinary 75mm Model 1897 field gun, the centre-piece of the French artillery, better known by the sobriquet of "Seventy-Five", in reference to its fabled calibre.

 

Invented by the Commandant DEPORT, and the Captains SAINTE-CLAIRE DEVILLE and RIMAILHO, the barrel of 75mm was from its origin equipped with an hydraulic brake. An innovative mechanism working with oil and nitrogen for the absorption of the recoil force, it allowed for a greater stability of the barrel.

 

The accuracy of the 75mm gun was unprecedented.   

 

It is a tribute to the courage of the heroes of the Great War, servants of this much acclaimed and admired artillery piece, that on the back of the MAD MINUTE, in the centre, is an engraving with the effigy of its bronze model, the shell of the "Seventy-Five".

STYLE

 

An eloquent symbol of refinement, the steel hands of the MAD MINUTE have a blued finish, contrasting gracefully with the white dial.

 

Made with the utmost precision, assembled with meticulous attention to detail, the hands of the MAD MINUTE are of a distinct vintage style, a shape chosen for its ideal balance both from a technical and aesthetic point of view.
