J.N. Shapiro Infinity Series P.01 for Collective Horology (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
Committed to the arcane art of engine turned dials, Josh Shapiro is a bold outlier in the ultra-traditional world of haute horology. But his newest project is attempting something never seen even in the modern era of innovative artisan timepieces: engine-turning an intricate pattern into a dial made from a 4-billion-year-old meteorite.
This painstakingly handcrafted specimen is the centerpiece on the Infinity Series P.01 – a new watch designed in collaboration with the global watch enthusiast community Collective. As part of Collective’s new ‘Portfolio Series,’ the P.01 is the first in an ongoing run of highly limited and unique watches from some of the foremost names in independent watch manufacture. Each of these watches will only be made available to members of Collective.
The exclusive Infinity Series P.01 builds on the signature Infinity Series watch from Josh Shapiro, which is characterized by an ornate engine-turned dial pattern and powered by an in-house manufactured calibre from Uhren Werke Dresden (UWD). This movement, along with the watch it is cased in are both assembled, finished, and regulated in Shapiro’s Los Angeles atelier. Each dial, along with its accompanying hands and serial plate, are all made in-house by Shapiro – a process which in totality requires thousands of machine operations and hundreds of hours.
