Alain Silberstein

Tourbillon Piece Unique sold


A unique, attractive and collectible yellow gold metiers d’art tourbillon wristwatch from the Alain Silberstein brand, established in 1987 by Parisian architect and designer Alain Silberstein until it disappeared in 2012. Piece unique produced in 1994. Case in 18k yellow gold, diameter 38mm, sapphire caseback. Dial with enamel decoration, branded Bauhaus-style red and blue hands. Caliber LWO 387, Swiss made, hand-wound, power reserve up to 50 hours. Functions – indication of time in hours and minutes, tourbillon at 6 o’clock. Black leather strap, Alain Silberstein yellow gold pin buckle. Piece unique. 


Alain Silberstein watches had a strong charisma from the moment the brand was founded, based on the unique vision of Alain Silberstein in his interpretation of the Bauhaus style and inspired by the art of Wassily Kandinsky. The typical design for the brand includes the use of the primary colours blue, red and yellow, and basic geometric shapes such as the circle, square and triangle. In addition, Alain Silberstein was prone to experimentation and risky ventures, which include the present single piece edition, primarily sold by Artcurial auctioneers during the judicial sale in 2014 following the brand’s bankruptcy. 

The strong charisma and creative nature of the brand’s collection, unfortunately, proved to be underestimated by the market, contributing to the deterioration of the financial health of the brand. In modern times, thanks to a significant increase in interest in the watches of independent masters and small creative brands, Alain Silberstein watches may be regarded as very attractive and promising collectibles. Alain Silberstein was able to create his own, easily recognisable and memorable style, which cannot be confused with watches created by other designers. In many of his creations he was ahead of his time, offering watches that remain relevant to this day, such as the present example.
