VISUAL IMPACT

The manufactures new collection places the accent on engineering and on material combinations. Scenography choreography pulls out the virtuosos stops with an up-to-the-minute openworked composition.

The collection squadron comprises four versions. Two are fashioned in ceramic, one black, the other white. A third showcases a titanium caseband and blue bezel boasting the same material. As for the last, it flaunts its preciousness, dressed in a rose gold robe. Dashes of color highlight the contrast of each model even more. The Super-LumiNova®-coated hour and minute hands stand out perfectly. All four cases take on roles as frames for an astonishing full-relief-style geometrical architecture, obtained thanks to the presence of the skeletonized UN-172 caliber.

Movement verticality is emphasized by the existence of the barrel and platinum micro-rotor center staged face-side at 12 o’clock and the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. The large openings, set off by the rectangular raised bridge, offer a clear view of a host of the automatic movement components. This ever-so precise movement is, of course, a high performer delivering a generous 72-hour power reserve.
