Swiss-by-way-of-L.A. watchmakers MARCH LA.B and Parisian boutique Colette come together on the 1805 Imperial Phantom watch—a jet-black version of their popular 1805 model.

The 1805 serves as MARCH LA.B‘s “homage to the unmistakable style of the first French Empire—a true Napoleonic inspired pocket watch, drawing from the relics of past centuries,” and this collab offers a modern redesign boasting an analog alarm, a crazy looking chain chain and a sleek-ass face (though no wi-fi). The watch also comes with two different chain clasps and a desk stand. Getting one on your desk, however, will present a challenge as only three of these have been made, each one for sale exclusively at Colette.
