Graphic and colorful, the SUMMETRIA collection - meaning "The Right Measure" in Greek - is inspired by the perfect symmetry of living things. Halfway between innovation and tradition, art and science, SUMMETRIA is a tribute to the beauty of the world and of nature, expressed through the age-old watchmaking technique of guilloché.
A COLLECTION INSPIRED BY THE BEAUTY, HARMONY AND CAPTIVATING SYMMETRY OF NATURE
All the projects developed by Awake since its creation have a common goal: to raise awareness by reminding us of the beauty of the World. They have all been designed to reconnect us with the Nature that surrounds us, to perceive and feel it’s bewitching beauty and perfect harmony, but also to appreciate its fragility and understand our responsibility to preserve it.
SUMMETRIA draws its inspiration from the careful observation of living things and their balanced, harmonious and perfectly symmetrical forms. The symmetry of life is a spectacle to be admired every day. From the wings of a butterfly to the petals of a flower, symmetry is everywhere. They seem quite natural to us and we don't necessarily pay much attention to them, yet symmetries dominate the living world.
THE MAGIC OF LIFE
For human beings, certain forms observed in nature have a very complex architecture from an external point of view. In reality, and this is where the magic of living things lies, nature creates these bewitching and mysterious shapes in complete simplicity, following a logic of "just measure" that favors productivity while consuming little energy.
THE RIGHT MEASURE
The living world systematically adopts the best possible yield for optimum efficiency, with the aim of constantly filling and optimizing space. The most complex and fascinating symmetrical structures therefore appear preferentially, partly as a result of natural selection, but also because they require less specific information to be encoded and therefore multiplied.
GUILLOCHÉ TO EMBODY THE PERFECTION OF SYMMETRY IN LIVING THINGS
To try to reproduce as faithfully as possible the perfection and beauty of the symmetries found in Nature, we have opted to use one of the oldest decorative techniques in watchmaking: the guilloché. This consists of engraving "guillochis" in a regular, symmetrical pattern on metal, either by hand or by machine.
A UNIQUE AND CAPTIVATING AESTHETIC
Although the traditional method is still hand guilloché, the complexity of which reserves it for a category of top-of-the- range watches, other methods have also appeared over the course of the 20th century, leading to the mechanization and industrialisation of the technique, making it possible to produce a variety of highly elaborate, elegant and high- quality decorations, all at a fair price. Far more than a simple decoration, a guilloché dial is often a work of art in its own right, offering a unique and bewitching aesthetic that you could spend hours observing.
Limited edition of 50 pieces per dial color.
The SUMMETRIA collection features fine guilloché with motifs and contrasts inspired by the perfect symmetry of the sunflower heart, available in 4 powerful colors, giving each version a sophisticated, refined and unique character that immediately catches the eye of watch lovers and enthusiasts.
