“When one says ‘ten o’clock’ or ‘three o’clock,’ this is not the grey and
shrunken time of towns; it is the memory of a certain fulmination or
declension of light that was unique to that time and that place on
that day, a memory as vivid to the hunter as burning magnesium.”
J.A. Baker, The Peregrin
As J.A. Baker, on the lookout, in the Thames Estuary, testified to the disappearance of the peregrine, we breathe a new life into this bird of prey. Parentage, transmission and the art of hunting : two bird the Grey heir and his Carbon descendant will symbolize the origins and the future, the legacy and the evolution of the watch…
While leaving the nest, the youngest also becomes the adversary of his sire. He draws its inspiration from his antecedent to surpass him and seize his prey. From this confrontation he comes out victorious, sharper and greater.
The power of the two birds evokes the sharp lines of the UR 220 ; their fineness refers to the accuracy of its new movement.
The movie is composed of six 15 seconds sequences : incubation, awakening, the prey, the fight, the watch, the rest, posted on social medias according to the launch plan. All the sequences were assembled in a 90 seconds edit.
