It is a formal and simple design, harmonizes with the values its architecture seeks to communicate. It is a piece that transcends mere functionalism, to access a higher instance, aesthetic and symbolic.
The mechanics of this jewel is animated by the Caliber BVL 193 which has at a rate of 4 Hz and has an operating reserve up to 50 hours. It features hands for hours, minutes, seconds and date window at 3 o’clock.
