With this creation unveiled in Geneva, I present this timepiece as an homage to the most beautiful achievements from the science of Horology.
At the crossroads of art and science.
The primary intention is to create a delicate harmony, the graphic composition of the entire piece is highlithed by the unique asymmetric layout of the dial, that shares the spotlight with the regulator elegantly placed at the front. . This original solution creates an animated scene that is an irresistible invitation to explore the movement.
The silvered dial, of a rare complexity, plays on contrasts and extraordinary finishing to offer perfect readability. Particular care has been taken in the design of the hand-finished rose gold hands, which immediately and accurately indicate the time.
The dial is emphasized by its polished steel cartouche, which accentuates the depth and contrast.
The unique composition of colors and finishes creates a spectacular visual dynamic, giving prominence to the large balance wheel, highlighted by finely polished bridges whose rose gold also match the hands.
This creation is also distinguished by its elegant neoclassical simplicity. The overall aesthetic is very refined and pays tribute to the craftsmanship and finesse of each component.
Each element of the watch harmonizes with the round lines of the case and the gracefully arched lugs embody classic elegance, and provide great comfort on all wrists.
I wanted to create an elegant watch that could be worn every day.
The construction of the movement has been carried out without compromise in terms of reliability and chronometry. The design and manufacture of the components are made to ensure a long life and guarantee an irreproachable precision, for centuries.
From the beginning I wanted a large free sprung balance wheel, coupled with its Phillips balance-spring, which allows for precision adjustment and beating at 21600 V.P.H.
Combined with a mainspring that delivers an important torque, the movement offers stable timekeeping, over a long power reserve of 55H.
The Swiss lever escapement has also been developed in-house to guarantee a perfect operation in the original architecture of the movement.
When the crown is pulled, the hacking lever which stops the balance wheel allows precise time setting by the robust and convenient keyless works.
Only traditional materials in their simplest treatment are used in this movement.
The main plate and bridges are made of German silver. And to put them in the spotlight, the bridges of the regulating organ are made of finely polished gold.
From the outset, I had in mind to make with the origine a watch for the most discerning collectors. It was therefore imperative that the movement be at the height of a timepiece of this level and in line with the requirements of purists.
The exceptional level of decoration is naturally applied to all parts of the movement, which are finished and worked at length by hand according to the highest standards.
This is why I have inscribed the words "Hand made" on the dial.
The bridges are grained or black plolished and bevelled with inward angles. The wheels feature « cerclage » or « soleillage » and bevelled arms. All countersinks for jewels and screws are polished.
