3435 Verso

The engineers at Epos have taken the historical and renowned hand-wound caliber ETA 6497 and modified it to create the Epos 3435 Verso in a manner so distinct that it now exposes all the wonders of a mechanical caliber on the dial side of the timepiece. The mesmerizing movement of the large golden balance wheel at the lower left of the dial along with the tirelessly turning wheels above it make for a remarkable spectacle.

The hand-wound ETA 6497 caliber serves as the trusted base for this clever modification. The movement is encased in a watch case with a 42.5 mm wide diameter made of stainless steel that is water resistant to 50 meters.

The Epos 3435 Verso promises to provide a timelessly elegant, yet unique way of telling the time. The pulsometer on the case-back is a most welcome and rare added functionality that neatly supplements the lavishly decorated aesthetic.

The watch has a 46-hour power reserve while functions include hours, minutes, and pulsometer on the back side. The dial of the watch is a small decentralized dial with sunray finish and engraved index hour-markers. The watch is fitted with a black leather strap with buckle.

The origins of the Epos Company date back to 1925. In that year, James Aubert formed his watch company in the Vallée de Joux, known as the center of the mechanical watch world. James Aubert was an enthusiastic mechanical watch engineer, who dedicated his life to developing new watch mechanisms. James Aubert was a master of his art and spent most of his efforts focusing on technical developments of chronographs and minute repeaters. He had first acquired his skills working as an engineer for the former watch movement manufacturers “Valjoux” and “Landeron“.

In the true watchmakers’ tradition, he handed down his knowledge to his nephew Jean Aubert and his son-in-law, Jean Fillon, who is still today the Epos’ watch engineer in chief. In his workshop many of Epos’ own developments for complicated watches were created in close cooperation with Epos watchmakers. A few that could be named are the jumping hour, the power reserve indication, the big date, the regulator and the regulator with the phases of the moon. A special characteristic of many Epos models is their well decorated movements: pearl-finish, “Côtes de Genève”, engraving and blued steel screws – the pride and joy of every watch lover.
