A symbolic figure, as 57 corresponds to the number of complications built into this pocket watch while 260 represents the number of years of uninterrupted activity by the oldest watch Manufacture, an anniversary being celebrated this year.
Reference 57260 is a double-dial horological masterwork of hitherto unimaginable complication and technical innovation. It was developed over a period of eight years by a team of three of the company's Master Watchmakers. Made using the classic principles of watchmaking along with resolutely 21st century thinking, this watch is an original creation exhibiting a total of 57 complications, several of which are entirely new and unique.
