Our First Timepiece

TOURBILLON

IRISH TOURBILLON

 

As watchmakers we strive for elegance, simplicity, precision and reliability. In our efforts to achieve these goals we have taken the view that less is often more. This is a principle we adopted with the design of our Tourbillon.

 

We wanted to distil the elements that we loved and respected in the masterpieces that had passed through our hands while working in restoration.
 

Features

DIALS

The dial is on two levels. The lower hour track is machined into the case ring. This, like the movement, is made from German silver.
The upper dial is sapphire crystal, affording a view not only of the tourbillon but the entire movement.

Features

CASE

The back has a sapphire glass back through which the engraved mainplate can be viewed.

WOLF TOOTH GEARING

All gearwheels use the ‘dents

de loup’ or ‘wolf’s teeth’ variety that was particularly popular in watchmaking

during the 19th century. Due to the fact that these teeth are not uniform, they require a vast amount of manual labor to finish them.
