Haute Time, the ultimate resource for luxury timepiece aficionados, presents exclusive video content behind top-tier watch brands from all over the world. Haute Living Co-publisher and Haute Time curator Seth Semilof sat down with Steven Holtzman, founder of Maitres Du Temps, to get an inside look at the exclusive brand’s newest additions.

An exotic young brand, Maitres Du Temps was founded in 2007. “The concept with the brand was to work with master watchmakers—Maitres du Temps means “Masters of Time,” said Holtzman. “By mixing two watchmakers [or] three watchmakers together, [they] create something different that neither of the watchmakers on their own would do.”

Each piece is called a “Chapter,” with each Chapter writing a page in watchmaking history. Chapter One is a collaboration between Peter Speake-Marin and Christophe Claret. “Christophe had developed the tourbillon. It’s got a double retrograde date and GMT,” explained Holtzman. “The price is just under half a million [dollars]. It was designed with the intent of really being something very limited, very exclusive; we make 11 of each watch.”

That’s just the beginning of the tale, with the watches in Chapters Two and Three setting standards of their own. Watch the story unfold here.
