Romain Gauthier's amazing watch, that propels him more into the rarified world of top end Independent Watchmakers. This tour de force, is a micro mechanical engineering marvel featuring several never been done before complications, that aid in efficiency and mechanical superiority. The first is the use of a jewelled chain with a cam (similar principle as a chain & fussee) for a constant torque mechanism and the second is a ratchet winding system for the synthetic sapphire sided main spring barrel. These features of the winding and mainspring help in reducing friction, a watchmaking nemesis! Add to this the exceedingly high level of traditional hand finishing found in the Vallee de Joux and one is presented with a superlative piece.
Presented here also is the platinum case with optional white enamel dial. The platinum was limited to only 20pcs and is long sold out. The final WG variant is available to order, it will be limited to 20pcs.
Also available now in a limited edition of 20pcs, the final edition with a Titanium case starting at $122,100 with a variety of dial options.
