Regent Erotic Art

Regent Erotic Art

Trangression with elegance

Despite sometimes almost excessively serious, watchmaking, especially when top quality, has often ventured the “private” world of the Eros. Erotic watches, frequently embellished by mechanisms, could already be found in the past in pocket or portable models, as the spectacular “The Alliance between Love and Wine” dated 1810 and ascribed to Piguet & Capt, one of the watchmaking masters of that period; or “The Virtues of Perfect Governance”, dated the same epoch, attributed to the Genivan Isaac Daniel Piguet.  From then on, countless were the watches made with an erotic subject, created by expert artisans or famous manufacturers who in the Calvinist Switzerland not always used to sign them.

In any case, owing one of the above creations has always been a distinctive mark, a more hilarious way to wear at your own wrist not only a beautiful watch, but also your more or less hidden passions. Zannetti already managed to illustrate such a delicate topic with great elegance in the past, when more than 15 years ago he created the BrainOrgy, a model meant to become, between all, one of his best buy. In that case, little stylized figures represented the erotic theme with their totality building and resembling a brain. Once worn, the Brain Orgy used to loose any erotic evidence which could only be understood with an accurate look of the dial.
Today the Brain Orgy comes back in a new version with a Mammuth Ivory hand-engraved and painted dial, to present itself even more exclusive and unique to the eyes of the lucky men who will wear it. The collection also broaden itself with the new Wheel Orgy model where man’s two greatest passions: cars, represented by a stylised wheel engraved on the dial, with its rays (from the 30ies) and the big central hub; and Eros, once again represented by infinite stylised figures that live and show the most unusual loving positions. The result is an erotic watch at the same time elegant, perfect to be worn during all the day, but also to arouse pleasing emotions once the dial is examined with more attention.
