Reflection of Romain’s creative freedom with a modern and youthful design, this new timepiece is the result of more than 16 years of know-how acquired through the development of the brand and the Manufacture.
The outer edges of each bridge all feature a double bevel, while the flat bridge surfaces and rubies are each framed by a raised border that has been straight-grained. Within these borders, the hand-finishing specialists at Manufacture Romain Gauthier have used a special hand-engraving technique to create a highly original dimpled texture.
Like many stop-seconds mechanisms, a brake is placed on C by Romain Gauthier’s balance wheel when the crown is pulled out. But instead of using a straight or L-shaped balance stop lever to halt the balance, Romain has opted to employ a snail cam that performs a double function: It touches and stops the balance wheel when the crown is pulled out and, when the crown is pushed back in, the snail cam makes a turn, with its increasingly wide form giving the balance an impulse to help it start beating again.
The distinctive gears and ratchet wheels feature circular spokes providing elegance and strength.
These spokes also bear eye-catching bevels, rarely seen in high-end watchmaking.
