Hands-On: Merci Instruments LMM-01 The Archiwatch

The first thing to note is that there’s a story to each of these Merci Instruments LMM-01 designs. I’ll start with the limited-edition LMM-01 Archiwatch. This model was collaboratively designed with Richard Ménasé of The Archiwatch (a Paris-based dealer of vintage watches). Only 250 numbered pieces will be sold. Its design is inspired by a watch that may have been worn by an architect living in Milan in the ’60s.
