Limited Edition of 50 pieces.
AS ATTESTED by the new position of the tourbillon carriage at 6 o’clock, an entirely new movement beats at the heart of this Tourbillon Fleurier 0. This new geometry has made it possible to improve still further the piece’s timekeeping qualities, while offering a degree of visual and symmetrical refinement that elevates its hand-crafted decorative work to an altogether higher level.
The Tourbillon Fleurier 0 features the AMADEO case, which allows the tourbillon watch to be converted into a miniature table clock, a pocket watch or a reversible wristwatch without the use of any tools whatsoever. A match made in heaven, considering that the tourbillon was invented in the era of the pocket watch to counter the effects of gravity when the timepiece is positioned vertically, and that the Tourbillon Fleurier 0 also offers a second face thanks to its reversed hand-fitting. The latter is displayed on a small offset dial that gives pride of place to the enchanting Fleurisanne engraving adorning the three-quarter plate.OF THE MOVEMENT’S 281 COMPONENTS, 66 relate to the tourbillon carriage. Each one has been entirely reappraised and redesigned by the watchmakers of DIMIER 1738 Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale, who drew their inspiration from historic watches in the private collections of the House of BOVET. Steel components take the emblematic form of period index assemblies. Bevellers have spared no effort in this succession of re-entering angles, rounded off to create a dazzling black polish with clean, bright edges.
