Operating from Salzburg/Austria, DOPPELGÄNGER stands for new approaches to the engineering of watches and for traditional handmade watchmaking.
The first model is the NGC-42: Double Orbital Indicators display the hours and the minutes on a non-linear scale. Controlled by a flying Tourbillon and a Random Impulse Controller, the Double Orbital Indicators like planets orbit a central dial unit in a three-dimensional ecliptic. The NGC-42 takes its name from New General Catalogue of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars (NGC) which was started in the 1880ies and is still the standard today. It represents DOPPELGÄNGER’S idea of uniting past, present and future.
