SIHH 2017 – PATRIMONY PERPETUAL CALENDAR

The new Patrimony perpetual calendar comes in a pink gold version with a new slate- coloured dial for the SIHH 2017. This Haute Horlogerie classic is powered by the legendary Caliber 1120 QP, an ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement revealing the elegance and finesse of the Patrimony collection.

A new release at the SIHH 2017, the Patrimony perpetual calendar features a pink gold case framing a slate-coloured opaline dial. While remaining loyal to the collection’s characteristic elegance and aesthetic purity, this new interpretation is infused with a definite sense of modernity and dynamism.The slightly convex external zone is adorned with a circular “pearl” minute-track and 18K pink gold applied hour-markers. Setting the finishing touch, the saddle-finish black alligator strap is hand-stitched and secured by a folding clasp in the same metal.

Revolving beneath the dial, the moon disc depicts the heavenly vault in pink gold enhanced by a blue galvanic treatment. Each star has been delicately crafted so as to provide an exact map of the sky.

SIHH 2017 – LES CABINOTIERS CELESTIA ASTRONOMICAL GRAND COMPLICATION 3600

Twenty three complications that cover every conceivable aspect of the cosmos inside a one of a kind wristwatch

The one-of-a-kind watch is one of the world’s most complicated wristwatches with 23 mainly astronomical complications.

This impressive feat of miniaturisation features a combined display of civil, solar and sidereal times, each with its own gear train. Its new fully integrated caliber is a pinnacle of technical sophistication with its 514 components measuring a total of only 8.7 mm thick.

The Fine Watchmaking firmament welcomes a bright new star: the unique twin-dial Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600 combines astronomy and the watchmaking art in a celestial white gold composition. Twenty-three essentially astronomical complications appear on the front and back dials of the watch, providing a reading of time in three modes – civil, solar and sidereal – each driven by its own gear train. Embodying the height of technical sophistication, its new fully integrated 514-part caliber measures a mere 8.7 mm thick, while six barrels guarantee three full weeks of autonomy.
