    But then, the very second when David Rutten started to tell me about “Meteorite”, he pronounced the key word, the one that drives you mad. A few weeks earlier I had seen the De Bethune’s Dream Watch 5, an absolute beauty from another world, flame blued and crafted from a meteorite block. One of the most powerful pieces I’ve ever held in my hands (LINK Foudroyante album DB). 450.000 euros. Ouch… C'est beau, mais c'est loin... Thus, this extraordinary piece suffered from the endemic...

    Early 2010, I went to Hautlence’s.

Franck Muller WPHH2015 : contercurrent 1/2
Publié le 20 March 2015
Of course, a thin tourbillon in a wristwatch is not very useful in chronometry, as this kind of piece is always in intermediate positions. Apart from some rotating tourbillons, such as Prescher, Greubel Forsey, Girard Perregaux or Jlc, which can claim to bring a sofisticated technological solution ( still for half-a-million), a thin tourbillon only has two real purposes: prestige and fun. Concerning the prestige, I leave you judge, it's not exactly the category that has the Patek tourbillon hidden by a full screen, in the Calvinist style, that is...
