A Kerbedanz timepiece reaches the Vatican Museums

The watch brand Kerbedanz, established on the shores of Lake Neuchâtel, in Switzerland, introduces special messages into its complicated watches with ultimate terminations: allegories and symbols that resemble initiatory paths, desired by the wearer of the watch and sometimes only understood by his close circle Indeed, it is the first haute-horlogerie brand to cultivate references and borrowings from human cultures, populated by legends, beliefs and allegiances, on the dial of its timepieces and sometimes even in its intimate workings. Essential alphabet with high ethnic value The use of the Armenian alphabet, whose unique aesthetic is a mixture of curves and entangled angles, replaces advantageously any form of index This mysterious writing, invented by the monk Mesrop Mashtots in 405 AD, is still in use today  The Kerbedanz brand, in creating this unique piece "Armenian Aphabet" to be offered to His Holiness Pope Francis, did not expect to be accredited by the Vatican Museums.
