Model: Architect 2001B Tank. Copyrighted Design by Xezo. Limited edition of 500 pieces. Individually numbered.
The idea came from observations of 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 ancient Greece ever produced.
After three years of trial and error development, in 2004 Xezo's designer finished the work of art now known as the Architect 2001 series.
This timepiece's master case produced from a single block of stainless steel 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.
