•••• More than 21 centuries ago, a mechanism of fabulous ingenuity was created in Greece, a device capable of indicating exactly how the sky would look for decades to come -- the position of the moon and sun, lunar phases and even eclipses. But this incredible invention would be drowned in the sea and its secret forgotten for two thousand years.
This video is a tribute from Swiss clock-maker Hublot and film-maker Philippe Nicolet to this device, known as the Antikythera Mechanism, or the world's "first computer". The fragments of the Mechanism were discovered in 1901 by sponge divers near the island of Antikythera. It is kept since then at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece.
For more than a century, researchers were trying to understand its functions. Since 2005, a pluridisciplinary research team, the "Antikythera Mechanism Research Project", is studying the Mechanism with the latest high tech available.
The results of this ongoing research has enabled the construction of many models. Amongst them, the unique mechanism of a watch, designed by Hublot as a tribute to the Mechanism, is incorporating the known functions of this mysterious and fascinating ancient Mechanism.
A model of the Antikythera Mechanism, built by the Aristotle University in Greece, together with the mechanism of the watch and this film in 3D are featuring in an exhibition about the Mechanism that is taking place in Paris, at the Musée des Arts et Métiers.
The original fragments of the Mechanism, its main models and the watch designed by Hublot are on display at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece.

•••• Le Mécanisme d'Anticythère (French - Français, 2D)
Un hommage rendu au Mécanisme d'Anticythère par la manufacture horlogère Suisse Hublot et le réalisateur Philippe Nicolet. Le Mécanisme est universellement connu en tant que le "premier calculateur analogique de l'humanité".
Les fragments du Mécanisme furent découverts en 1901 par des pêcheurs d'éponges, près de l'île d'Anticythère. Depuis, il est conservé au Musée National Archéologique d'Athènes. Pendant plus d'un siècle, des chercheurs ont essayé de comprendre sa fonction. Depuis 2005, une équipe de recherche pluridisciplinaire, le "Antikythera Mechanism Research Project", étudie le Mécanisme avec des données recueillies par des instruments à la pointe de la technologie.
Les premiers résultats de cette recherche ont permis la construction de plusieurs modèles. Parmi ceux-ci, le mouvement unique d'une montre, conçu par Hublot en tant qu'hommage au Mécanisme; ce mouvement intègre les fonctions de ce mystérieux et fascinant mécanisme antique.
