In the world of horology, innovation can sometimes feel like an elusive goal. However, Armando Legin, a 36-year-old entrepreneur hailing from Ljubljana, Slovenia, is defying convention with his eponymous brand’s debut timepiece, the Armando Legin Inveniō.

The Inveniō, which translates to “I come upon” in Latin, challenges traditional watch design with its patent-pending transversal indicator. Unlike conventional timepieces with separate hour and minute hands, Armando Legin’s creation features a single hand for hours and minutes, simplifying the display and removing unnecessary clutter.

Legin’s journey into watchmaking began with sketches and concepts in 2019, which eventually evolved into the Inveniō. His vision took shape with the help of watchmaker Marc Jenni, industry veteran Vicente Mafe, watch designer Fabrice Gonet, and Revelation Watches founder Olivier Leu.

The Inveniō’s case is a contemporary steel structure with 3D skeletonized lugs and meticulous hand-finishing. Measuring 42mm diagonally, it boasts a height of 13.6mm and a lug-to-lug distance of 53mm, offering a substantial yet comfortable wear experience.

The heart of this unconventional timepiece is the transversal indicator, which rotates to indicate hours and minutes, with a sapphire disc carrying hour indices. The innovative design provides a dynamic and ever-changing perspective of time, making it a unique conversation starter.

Armando Legin’s creation is powered by a Vaucher base movement with a proprietary module. The watch runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a generous 50-hour power reserve, ensuring reliable timekeeping.

The Inveniō’s limited production run of two to three pieces per month and a limited edition of just 25 pieces make it a rare and sought-after collector’s item. Priced at $17,900, it’s a bold step into the future of watchmaking. While the price may raise eyebrows, experiencing the Inveniō’s captivating approach to timekeeping in person is the only way to truly appreciate its value.
