Footnotes

  • This watch was made specially for the client with a distinctly engraved rotor and movement plates which is not standard and was done on request. It sets this apart from being a rare watch to being Unique.

    This watch is classed as a Grande Complication, each of this series of watches was made under the control of one watchmaker, some of the 740 pieces are hand adjusted to ensure the perfect function of this Masterpiece, with such painstaking work it is no wonder each watch took a year to complete.

    The combination of complications makes this a piece one that very few manufacturers could complete and is at the peak of watchmaking ability.
