As if floating on air, this multi-axis tourbillon, or ‘flying’ tourbillon, is designed without an upper bridge so as to facilitate unobstructed contemplation of the show provided by this miniature planet. A gold balance-wheel and a blued spherical balance-spring appear between the two aluminium carriages.
Counting off time
Like the iconic 19th century models, the chronograph is controlled by a single pusher. While the dedicated hand marks off the seconds, an aperture provides a numerical display of the elapsed minutes.
The surprisingly modern dial of the watch provides a striking read-off thanks to a play on depths, superimposed indicators and finely crafted materials. This visual symphony notably features finely-toned silver-grained or satin-finished dials as well as hand-hammered movement bridges and plates.
