Tireless in his quest for perfection, Pascal Raffy and the artisans of the DIMIER manufactures have united their efforts in the realisation of this new masterpiece. Called “Orbis Mundi®”, this grand complication embodies new feats of virtuosity. The 13BA05 automatic calibre that powers this exquisite timepiece was imagined, designed and developed to incorporate functions both useful and practical for every day use.
The transparent mineral rock crystal dial reveals successively, in the different segments of ideal quadrants: a main time zone indicating the local hours and minutes and the tourbillon cage featuring a “lotus flower” bridge and a seconds hand. A second counter indicates the hours of the second time zone with a day/night indication.
At 12 o’clock, an aperture displaying a choice of one of 24 cities perfectly synchronised to the second time zone, as well as a power reserve indicator, which, with the combined use of two barrels, has an autonomy of 7 days (168 hours).
Furthermore, the practical aspects of this timepiece are evident; two pushers on each side of the case-side allow rapid and easy adjustment of the second time zone and 24 cities, while the generous dial opening and the use of luminescent material offer superb legibility without in detracting from the refined traditional aesthetic of the DIMIER Récital timepieces.
The expertise and skills of the artisans in the various Haute Horlogerie Watchmaking crafts represented at the DIMIER 1738 manufactures guarantee that even the minute and unseen features of the watch will be finished with meticulous attention to detail.
