The pentagon revisited in a sports-chic version
The shaped bezel is designed on five straight curves that intersect a circle, with sharp angles to form a pentagon that is highlighted by its polished / satin finish. The case is assembled and finished by hand and is made by Geneva companies known for their excellence. On the galvanic-coloured dials are harmoniously placed applied Arabic numerals in 3D super-luminova, which reveal their colours in the dark. The sandblasted hour-minute hands, also equipped with super-luminova, facilitate the reading of the time during the day as at night. The transparent back has the same finish as the bezel and reveals the beautiful finishes of the movement.
On the new versions, a hand-bevelled, openworked and personalized oscillating weight, which matches the color of the dial, adds a touch of colorful grace to this beautiful mechanism. The screw-down crown with the engraved logo at 2.30 am revisits the five-sided geometry of the pentagon in a different way.
With its 20 atmospheres water-resistance, it offers a bouquet of attentions that sometimes escape description because they blend into an evidence of purity and functionality. These mechanical self-winding watches, so at ease in society, also have the DNA of an elegant sports watch.

There is a philosophy behind the product: to remain agile and in a human dimension. The name FIVE does not just evoke the pentagon; it stems primarily from the hand, with its five fingers without which it would be impossible to make a watch like this. The hand of man is present in every step that goes into its creation. From the simple handshake that links Yvan Monnet to each of the artisans involved in the production, to the expert hands that bring each detail to perfection. But FIVE is above all an attitude, a universe built upon the spirit of collaboration.
“Like a conductor leading an orchestra and presenting his own creations, I know the instruments and the emotions they express, but I do not play them. I leave the specialists to express the best of themselves. They are the source of inspiration, and I do my best to how them to advantage.”
