Andreas Strehler Papillon d’Or Watch Hands-On

Andreas-Strehler-Papillon-dOr-aBlogtoWatch-3

The most famous aesthetic element of Andreas Strehler watches is the butterfly (papillon in French) motif. It’s sort of funny given that Andreas Strehler makes men’s watches, and – at least in America and other parts of the West – butterflies are usually associated with more feminine items (and not men’s watches). Lower-back tattoos and such aside, in the context of the horological world, think of fancy watches from Van Cleef & Arpels and their regular emphasis on butterflies. So, the question we ask is whether or not the Andreas Strehler Papillon d’Or (“butterfly in gold”) watch does its job asserting itself as a masculine item?
