Les plus

  • Subjectively : the most beautiful watch in SIHH2015.
  • Objectively : the most emotional piece of 2015.
  • A major step of the NM adventure.
  • Greubel, Dufour & Michel Boulanger in the same watch.
  • Original and didactic presentation, which reveals every facet of mechanism.
  • Prototype with primitive finishings (waiting for Philippe), tribute to the watchmaking of the end of the 18th century.
  • Low frequency & one-minute tourbillon.
  • Layout of the dial.
  • Shape of the horns, design of the case.
  • Depth perception, incredible 3D
