The Maestro watch was a natural choice to accommodate the rippling coils of the Mamba snake. Following the model unveiled in 2017 and infusing a new dynamic into the Tradition collection, the Maestro Mamba appeals through both its shape and its proportions with a 42 mm black PVD-treated titanium case topped by an sapphire crystal dome. The overall construction is revealed through a multi-dimensional architecture with the famous Charles X stepped and skeletonized bridges and the two series-coupled barrels positioned at 12 o’clock ensuring optimal efficiency.
In terms of horological complications, the Maestro Mamba offers the patented large date display at 5 o’clock, composed of two cones, and the Maestro’s characteristic Memo function positioned between 3 and 4 o’clock. Inspired by the expression “tie a knot in your handkerchief” to help one remember something important, the Memo is an ingenious mechanical reminder. In the initial position, meaning when the owner must do something, a tsavorite appears at 6 o’clock on the side face of the Memo, like the gem set at its top. Once the objective has been met, a simple press on the pusher at 2 o’clock pivots the Memo function, which will display a diamond on its side face at 6 o’clock, instead of the tsavorite. The Memo will return to its initial position each night in a twenty-minute process driven by a semi-instantaneous jump system.
