About Vicenterra & Vincent Plomb

Vicenterra, conceived by the engineering-minded Vincent Plomb in 2005, is a genuinely Swiss independent watchmaker that thrives on its creative approach to watch and movement design. Following a career in micro-mechanics, Vincent began drafting his horological ideas in 2005. Years of refinement and prototyping later, 2010 saw the first Vicenterra timepiece emerge, followed by a range of special editions and, in 2017, the Tycho Brahe T2.

What’s Special About The Vicenterra Tycho Brahe T2

What’s special about the Vicenterra Tycho Brahe T2 is that it has taken the small manufacture’s defining components, such as its revolving, three-dimensional, beautifully crafted and ultra-lightweight globe, and placed it in a much more compact and yet more wearable package. Safeguarding the 7.50mm-diameter titanium globe is an elaborately finished titanium case that measures 42.80mm-wide, 51.64mm-tall (lug-to-lug) and a comfortable 11.70mm of maximum thickness.

The globe makes a full rotation around its axis in 24 hours but can also independently be adjusted in 24 increments with a pusher set into the case at its 4 o’clock position. As such, the titanium globe can serve as an indicator of a second timezone, or an AM/PM indicator of one’s local time. This is made possible by a V-shaped arrowhead that points at the center of the globe. Notably, this “V,” along with the uniquely shaped frame of the date window and the applied hour markers, is crafted from solid PD210 18k white gold.

An Invitation To Travel

This watch is an invitation to travel — not just around the world but also within the world of watchmaking itself. Vicenterra has taken the concept of having this intricately made, three-dimensional, properly functional globe and placed it in a watch within the sub-$5,000 price segment. Based on a dependable and powerful ETA 2892 automatic caliber of “Top” grade, Vicenterra’s own unique modular system adds multiple levels of complication to this caliber.

Take as close a look as you wish: The details of the Top-grade ETA caliber with its bespoke winding rotor, the Swiss-made and beautifully finished titanium case, and every detail of the globe — revealed on the front as well as on the caseback by its dedicated sapphire aperture — is a most honest invitation into the world of Swiss independent watchmaking.

Vicenterra watches are designed in Boncourt, then made and assembled in the La Chaux-de-Fonds and Porrentruy areas. Each design is, therefore, more than 95% manufactured in the Swiss Jura by craftspeople and companies with exceptional know-how and expertise. In other words, Vincent’s creative concept and uncompromising focus on quality allows the Vicenterra Tycho Brahe T2 Anthra to serve as one of the finest examples of just how much is possible for a Swiss independent to achieve.

Now In Anthracite Gray

Despite its unique feature set, the Tycho Brahe T2 Anthra was designed to perform perfectly as one’s everyday watch. The compact and lightweight titanium case with its downwards turned lugs, combined with a supple calf leather strap and titanium pin buckle, all make for ideal long-term wearing comfort. Legibility is a core component of any well-made watch, and the Anthra continues to feature minute markers and large, luminescent hands over its dial, which appears to float free from its surroundings.

The rest of the front of the Tycho Brahe T2 Anthra is made up by dark rhodium plates that feature a 45° brushed decoration and long, sweeping, polished bevels. A play of textures, colors, and shapes renders the Tycho Brahe such a calming yet fascinating sight.

    I had to do a double take, I was like why the hell did they get Ted Cruz as an ambassador.

    • Raymond Wilkie

      That’s really spooky.

  • ray h.

    In the pricing environment we are in this looks like lux value.

  • Raymond Wilkie

    From a design perceptive, I don’t think this hasn’t worked at all.
    The off set dial,
    The date window.
    The minute hand.
    That spinning globe thats more of a novelty really. .
    None of it really gels to a cohesive looking design.
    Have I mentioned the date window already……….

    • But it’s cool – most of that doesn’t matter if the watch “speaks to you”. I guess it doesn’t for you eh Raymond?

      • Raymond Wilkie

        It said ” Don’t buy me “

        • Well at least you two are still speaking, ha ha.

    • Beefalope

      “I don’t think this hasn’t worked at all.”

      What language is this?

      • Raymond Wilkie

        Typo Beefy.

  • ray h.

    If the HO put their mark on it, it would be 8k and sold out in a day.

  • Pedro Lambareiro

    Have to thank ablogtowatch for making me aware of this lovely brand. This would never appear at Hodinkee’s.

  • ray h.

    I have a suggestion for Mr. Plomb,have 3d flash version of the watch,that way people will visit the site (and the virtual watch) to see the time and the globe in action,things like this grow on people. It’s a complication you have not seen forever and lust after. You have to build the want,that turns in to need. (:
    All I want for giving you this sales tool is a watch for myself. Good luck !

  • seoulseeker

    I love this, it’s like a budget gruebel

  • WINKS

    Refreshing to see a quality proposition from intelligent people.

    A little over a year and a half ago I purchase a Vicenterra Tycho Brahe Tome 2 Blue. From the moment I open the engraved wood watch box to handling the beautiful limited edition watch I was thrilled by it’s design, it’s craftsmanship and uniqueness. This is not a watch you will see often do to the fact so few are made. Because of this people ask me all the time where I got it from and how much. I tell them that it is only made in switzerland by a private watchmaker and it’s priceless to me. I thank you Mr. Plomb for your hard work and doing everything we agreed upon. – Mario Mariani

    Really like this and I think the price point is good too. My wife took a look at it and actually said I could buy it if I wanted one, that’s how much she liked the look!
