Named  ‘Solaris’ after Andrei Tarkovsky’s unforgettable film based on the novel by Stanislaw Lem, Marc felt the name suited the watch as its design was about being double.

“I loved the idea of making a symmetrical two faced object, where one face is visible and the other hidden. It’s always simultaneously up the right way and upside-down. The connection is quite abstract; the original story concerns the relationship between reality and dreams. My Solaris contains time zones relating to two different places.”

The watch comprises of two fully reversible faces with separate highly accurate quartz movements that are utterly independent of each other and a metal mesh bracelet strap.
