In 18k white gold, set with over 24 carats of baguette-cut sapphires plus three solitaire trillion sapphires on the dial, this unique piece is powered by the brand's signature Tourbillon of Tourbillons movement.
The watchmaker presents a new and spectacular iteration of his Tourbillon of Tourbillons movement, a work of immense precision, executed with his son, Florian.
Christiaan Huygens foresaw it. Antide Janvier and Abraham-Louis Breguet made it happen. Resonance is a well-known phenomenon of physics, but only a handful of modern watchmakers have succeeded in applying it to their movements.
He has explored fine watchmaking from every angle, taking care to turn aesthetic conventions upside-down. With his head in the stars, Antoine Preziuso has sailed through the past 35 years with manifold complicated creations that concede nothing to marketing. A dream of watchmaking resonates with freedom and family to underpin his success.
The Geneva-based watchmaker has created a work of mechanical choreography with three tourbillonsturning in harmony on a revolving plate.
Often considered the supreme horological complication, the tourbillon remains a constant source of fascination.
In 1985, in the thick of the quartz crisis, a handful of idealists established the Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants to defend the particular values of handcrafted and inventive mechanical horology. Twenty-five years on, and the AHCI is now a landmark.
