Model: Architect 2001 SB. Copyrighted Design by Xezo. Limited edition of 500 pieces.
At the dawn of the third millennium, in the year 2001, Xezo embarked on the daunting task of creating a timepiece accurately reflecting Time itself. The idea came from observations of ancient classical architecture in general, and in particular the ruins of Erechtheum Temple (on the Acropolis in Greece) finished by 405 B.C. Its unique plan features three facades at different levels, and is famous for complex, exquisite details; most notably the loveliest Ionic capitals Greece ever produced.
After 3 years of trial and error development, in 2004 Xezo introduced its first Architect 2001 model. Over the years Xezo Architect 2001 series of watches expanded to include more than ten additional models. Each model still made as limited edition of 500 pieces.
This timepiece mirrors the temple’s classical beauty in many crucial ways. Each of the reverse columns on both sides of the case signifies one of the shrine’s façades. And the nine rectangular see-troughs--found on the top and bottom of the timepiece--resemble the moldings of the temple’s porch supported by ethereal sculpted figures.
Finally, after almost 2,500 years, a select number of Architect 2001 owners can now share in the eternal beauty of the Erechtheum Temple and capture Time itself on their wrists.
The production of each Xezo watch is limited to 500 pieces or less. Each Xezo watch is a handcrafted collectible item and an exceptional gift for a watch collector—one day destined to become a vintage heirloom.
