MASTERWORKS: COSMIC CONSTELLATIONSDeconstructing the Complexity of Time by Patrick Möckesch
Where Precision Meets Art
The inspiration behind Cosmic Constellations stems from the very concept of time. “If I think about time”, Möckesch says, “my thoughts inevitably guide me to the source of everything: the universe.”
He explains: “The parallels between clockwork and the universe are surprisingly obvious. Mechanical watches have always represented an extraordinary measurement of importance and appreciation of time.”
The deconstruction of luxury watches illuminates this importance. “Wristwatches use high specialised precision mechanics to make you feel a whole world of emotions, and Haute Horlogerie is the top of the mountain for any aficionado.”

Patrick Möckesch is an artist and photographer, who often finds inspiration in the “perfection” and underlying significance of the inanimate. Möckesch believes that Mechanical watches have always represented an extraordinary measurement of the importance and appreciation of time.” Using the intricate mechanisms and impeccable detail of Haute Horlogerie he challenges our perceptions of space and time.
