Handmade timepiece based on the ancient myth of Icarus.
RÖNKKÖ ICARUS

Bild

Rönkkö Icarus Bi-Hemispheric Moon Complication displays the position of the moon in the two hemispheres – with a dial divided horizontally into a northern and southern half. The legend of flying Icarus rising and falling is visible in the dial. As in life, It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up again. In this case Icarus takes a fall, but will rise to the top as well.

In northern hemisphere aperture the full moon displays at 12 o´clock position and black moon at 9 o´clock, moon disc rotating counterclockwise. Simultaneously in southern hemisphere aperture the full moon displays at 6 o´clock position and black moon at 3 o´clock, moon disc rotating counterclockwise. The Icarus moon talisman itself measures 10,5 mm and is crafted to be faceted interpretation of winged flying Icarus with over 180 facets. The moon talisman is made of electrum – the ancient alloy of gold and silver fused together.

The Silver Sky Edition of 10 pieces comes with two Icarus moon phase talismans in the blue dial side; an additional talisman is in free-rotation at the middle of the labyrinthine rotor in an open case back coated with clear sapphire glass. The Icarus comes with a matte black strap of genuine alligator leather.

The hands with Swiss Super Luminova come in stainless steel, matching the case. All the stars in the dial and six of the hour indexes are luminous in the dark. The subtle sign of watchmaker Rönkkö is engraved straight inside the sapphire crystal with high definition. The silent signature of the maker is visible in certain angles.

The position of the moon and its phases are opposite on both sides of the planet earth. That´s the reason Icarus features a display that allows to see the position of the moon in the northern (on the top half of the dial) and southern (on the bottom half of the dial) hemispheres. Rönkkö´s In-house complication features two multifaceted 10,5 mm Icarus moon talismans, displayed in an arched aperture that runs on the entire upper and lower half of the dial. The moon disc is engraved with precise constellations, North Star Polaris being the pole in the center of the dial, as seen in the night sky.

INSPIRED BY THE MYTH OF ICARUS

I give you my wings, said the master craftsman Daedalus to Icarus. Fight gravity and fly high. Believe in going with the flow, never fight the wind. Always reach for the stars, never try to catch the sun or fly too low. Reach new horizons and expand yourself. Remember – only you are the one that knows how high or how far you can fly. Sky is your limit.

The Greek myth of young Icarus has been referenced in centuries of art, literature, and design. For ages the myth has been told as a cautionary tale where emotion clouds the judgement. We forget that Icarus was also warned not to fly too low, because seawater would ruin the lift in his wings. Flying too low is even more dangerous than flying too high, since it feels deceptively safe. In other words, we rarely if ever hear: Don’t be too humble. Don’t be too quiet. Don’t play too safe. We haven’t heard that part of the legend. Too many of us remain at our safe comfort zone through life – not utilizing our full potential.

Be bold. Only bravery accompanied with ingenuity will set you free. Today creativity is scarce and more valuable than ever. It’s a reminder that you and your ideas will never make it off the ground if you’re not willing to embrace the risk and fear of falling. Do something unpredictable to make it larger than life. Fall nine times and stand up ten. When life knocks you down, stand back up. No matter what. What matters that you choose to do it.

Be a man who makes a personal commitment to excellence and to victory, even though the ultimate victory can never be completely won. Only you are the one, who knows how high – or how far you can fly.
