The aesthetical concept of TME 01 was to bring a new and fresh vision of « Haute Horlogerie » there is no mechanical parts on the upper face like the actual trend but a very technical dial easy to read with big luminous numbers and clears indications.
The idea was to bring fresh colours on this dial, like a space ship control board. The trust index and the power reserve indicator are located under the dial the two hand are moving on a vertical line, this was quite difficult to do. At the back a large opening allow to see the movement treated in a sober way with a large “X” bridge screwed on a carbon fibre plate, the strong visual effect is due to the extreme degree of hand finishing done on all the components.
The movement is looked to the case with two “forks” located at 12 and 6. The screws are “half circle drive” type this allows a very precise torque proportioning during the screwing process. The straps are made of a new type of lizard skin called titanium lizard. Each strap will be individually hand crafted by a master from “Les ateliers de France”.Each watch is delivered in a black aluminium tube sealed with a screwed cap, inside this tube the customer will find a USB flash drive containing the history of his watch on a video, this flash drive will be also used as the ID card of the watch.
Production of TME 01 was limited to 20 pieces in Titanium,20 pieces Pink gold, 20 piece carbon fiber/rose gold casing,and 3 one of a kind pieces with specials materials and finishes.
