A continuous speed 180 km/h meets the Fabulous Flitzer Club
Why are car lovers so keen on mechanical watches? Quite easy to answer. If you compare the performance of a watch movement with that of a combustion engine, it runs at 180 km/h continuous speed. This impresses and fascinates every Petrolhead.
The Fabulous Flitzer Club went on its Grand Tour through Switzerland and our L3 Sees red was present. A mechanical hand-winding watch, with cars older than 1990, what a fabulous harmony.. The mix of participating cars, from the MG Mitget to the Aston Martin Lagonda, were matched in levels of enthrallment with the chosen L3. The L3 sees red with a red sapphire crystal. Speed of 180km/h on your wrist and the watch glows in the sun like a race engine.
System blasters are the new elite
In German-speaking countries, the classic film with Charles Bronson, in which a man sees red, is called "A man sees red". There is a masculine red, this powerful red of men who can change lives. Their own, and that of many. But that alone is not reason enough for the "L3 sees red".
L3 and Filmer meet at the roots
With its design, which is based on the aesthetics of the Bauhaus and thus on the roots of design, the L3 has brought a filmmaker back to the roots of his work. Today Chris Tribelhorn produces exclusively beauty and fashion films – and very successfully. So to entice him away from the scene, we chose the L3. The L3 has its charm without being loud and screaming, it is very subtle and offers an intense and long-lasting essence.
Product films, like the one Tribelhorn made about the L3, are extremely concentrated, because of the reduced atmosphere, there is no flash location or anything else that might distract from the product. This is all about the product. Focused, almost meditative. The film has only light, movement, and the product. lose, clear, replicating a view like being under the eyepiece of a microscope.
We thank Chris Tribelhorn for being seduced by the L3, because he captured this watch perfectly. This mixture of clarity, purity, objectivity, and freedom that this watch gives with the space that spreads out under the tall glass, has to be understood to show it so perfectly.
Anyone who has ever been able to see the production of such a film knows how much work and love for the little things is valued and what is involved. It’s very close to the process by which we create watches, with care, attention to detail, and love for the little things. Chris Tribelhorn, we and the watch have met at the roots and worked our way up to the treetop and enjoy the common path and goal – to reach the highest aesthetics.
