The Légende Tourbillon
Tradition, Savoir-Faire & the Art of Precision
Watch designer Roshan Martin presents its first collection Légende Tourbillon. Entirely designed, developed and produced in Switzerland, it intertwines ancient and traditional methods with avant-garde techniques.
At the heart of the brand lies the desire to conceive the finest precision luxury timepiece in the world while perpetuating the crafts, values and handmade savoir-faire of the great master watchmakers from the 18th century. Through unique creations with timeless beauty the Montreux-based brand enters the circle of Haute Horlogerie and exceptional timepieces.
Inspiration, Audacity & Excellence
The Légende Tourbillon timepiece draws its inspiration from the observatory watches, famous for their precision and accuracy. Ancient methods and tools, which have often been forgotten, combined with avant-garde techniques, as well as the know-how and expertise of a Master watchmaker, were required to produce this true work of art.
The Légende Tourbillon houses the Manufactured Caliber RM10-TEP, manual winding ultra-thin traditional tourbillon, with a height of only 2,8 mm and a power reserve of 55 hours. The handmade movement includes a Breguet overcall, an in-house escapement and a balance wheel in red gold. Each of the 115 components has been re-worked by hand to ensure high precision and accuracy.
An Emotional Piece of Art
The case, measuring 43.5 mm of pure emotion in diameter and a well proportioned “Museum Design”, will be available in proprietary fused carbon, 5N Rose Gold or 750 Platinum. Purists and collectors will acknowledge the savoir-faire of the brand through the architectural design and traditionally hand finishing of the movement, which dominates the front with the tourbillon at 9 o’clock. The brand name is inscribed or engraved just above the tourbillon on the visible movement. An eccentric Grand Feu enamel dial (also available in gold or platinum with matte finish) near 3 o’clock displays the time with Gold or Platinum hands. The Platinum main plate and bridge of the movement are NAC finished with traditional Côtes de Genève.
The rear tourbillon bridge is fully customizable and thus unique for each client.
The Légende Tourbillon collection comes in a limited edition of 10 pieces.
