PuristS and Paul Gerber announce the Gerber PuristS 10th Model 42 Watch

The PuristS’ family of horology and luxury websites (ThePuristS.com and PuristSPro.com) is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2011, with a gathering of PuristS, friends, watchmakers and sponsors.  A number of watchmakers and brands are issuing limited edition or piece unique watches to commemorate a decade of PuristS independence on the horological scene.


“We are thrilled about the Gerber PuristS 10th Model 42, with its special machined dial, being one of the PuristS 10th Anniversary watches,  said Dr Melvyn Teillol-Foo (PuristSPro CEO), continuing: “Paul is one of the original members of AHCI and all-round good guy.  Being the engineering behind the recent Ochs & Junior and MIH watches, Paul is also known as the ‘Master of Miniaturisation’ from his days behind the scenes for many big brands and special watches. The Gerber PuristS 10th Model 42 brings affordable haute horlogerie to all.”


Master Watchmaker Gerber explained (in German), “A watch does not necessarily work better with a high degree of finish, but I think a watch without any aesthetic finish is simply an instrument to tell time. For me, the aesthetics, quality and finish are important because I feel this is what gives a watch its soul. I truly believe one can feel when a watch is "alive". I try hard to do something new, something that has not been done before. The synchronised triple rotors on Model 42 were a fun challenge and the special PuristS-inspired dial is a tribute for 10 years of supporting the Independents.”
