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