Masterpiece Double Rétrograde
Excellence in Automation
Available in a limited edition series of 50, the Masterpiece Double Rétrograde is produced in pink gold. The large 46 mm diameter cases, statuesque in appearance, afford time a space in keeping with its dimensions. The case, which is water-resistant to a depth of 50 m, has a very contemporary style polished and satin finish, with nothing superfluous and no decorative flourishes. Its plain simplicity is echoed in the blue dials that display the time data in a methodical and practical fashion, whatever the model.
It features a GMT double retrograde and date at 12 and 6 o'clock. The delicately cut out display, stylish despite its technical sophistication, is enhanced by the sun-brushed satin finish of the dial, the deep blue colour of which confirms its credentials. The power reserve display, located at 3 o'clock is characterized by its bold, dynamic appearance. The pink-gold applied markers sit in a curve that stretches out gradually, giving a real impression of movement. As for the small seconds hand, it circles regularly without stopping.
In a clear, striking contrast, the fine pink-gold hands skim round the blue dial, their diamond-cut finish further enhanced by their gently curved shape. The absence of an arbour hole confirms traditional design where attention to the minutest detail is taken to its extreme. The purity, the quiet poise of the design that emanates from this timepiece cannot fail to evoke the most beautiful architectural creations where design, distilled to its purest essence, transfigures form and function. Perfect visual harmony and crystal-clear legibility testify explicitly to this.
The self-winding movement ML 191 is created in the pure tradition of Swiss watchmaking. The finish, even of the tiniest component, invisible after the watch is assembled, can be seen through the sapphire crystal case backs.
