SHARING IDEAS TO OVERCOME ANY CHALLENGE, WE BELIEVE IN COLLABORATION. OVER THE YEARS, WE HAVE WORKED WITH LIKE-MINDED PARTNERS RANGING FROM DEDICATED ARTISANS TO INTREPID ADVENTURERS.
“It is an honour to have created the first Thomas Mercer Chronometer of the 21st century. We design yachts that cruise and travel to the furthest coasts of the sea. Marine clocks have been the key technology for marine navigation and Thomas Mercer leads the field with their exquisite timepieces.”
“Like horology, making furniture is all about precision. With its beautifully crafted pieces meticulously tucked away example, the Aquilo Marine Chronometer is an extraordinary one-off objet d’art that fuses these two universes. Hand-made furniture has a character that is utterly individual and bespoke pieces come alive by connecting their owners to the hand and soul of the maker.”
“Foglizzo Leather is always ready to collaborate, inspire and be inspired by the creativity that surrounds Thomas Mercer with his passion for innovation, craftsmanship, impeccable style and quality without compromises. Every project has its own challenges, we share together with Thomas Mercer the desire to honour a glorious past reinventing the future.”
“Thomas Mercer is a brand that has a long tradition but never ceases to amaze. Defining its products "clocks" is an understatement: they are works of art and technique, a modern reminder of the era when the watch was an instrument rather than an ornament. It is a pride, for Pisa Orologeria, to offer its customers these unique products, with an important history and manufactured according to the highest quality standards.”

"Navigators used Thomas Mercer chronometers to embark on journeys of adventure in uncharted waters. I felt that same sense of adventure and taste for the unknown when designing works that for the most part, I fail to grasp, but which exert on me an unparallelled fascination. I work around the clock with respect, curiosity and admiration, in the certainty that what the pencil draws, time will define."
“Thomas Mercer chronometers are world renowned, not only for their captivating appearance but, moreover, their high degree of accuracy. They represent the human quest for precision at a point where precision verges on becoming invisible. Coming up with a sculptural solution as the counterpart to such an intellectually beautifully mechanism required us to embrace the harmony of opposites and another challenge perfectly suited to the expertise and craftsmanship that DKT thrive on.”
The shell of the Nautilus is an incredible piece of art per se, and it is a privilege to lend our expertise to this prestigious collaboration with Winch Design and Thomas Mercer. With its fantastic colours and reflections, Bohemian crystal is the perfect material to enhance the Nautilus’ sophisticated movement and transform this object into an horological sculpture.”
“While precision horology and stonemasonry are art forms in their own right, a true work of art is where the artist uniquely combines one or more art forms to confer a symbolic and incomparable value. With the Chelys, Andrew Winch shows his unique talent as an artist by first imagining a superb onyx and then inspiredly fusing it with a chronometer movement to elevate it, to the status of horological sculpture.”
