Maîtres du Temps Chapter Two – New Versions in 18K White or Red Gold

Maîtres du Temps Chapter Two, the world’s most legible triple calendar mechanical wristwatch is now available in varying combinations for the discriminating watch enthusiast.

Chapter Two, a collaboration of master watchmakers including Peter Speake-Marin and Daniel Roth, features central hours and minutes indicated by elegant diamond-cut, solid gold hands, sub-seconds at 6 o’clock, big date at 12 o’clock, and the day and month spelled out in full on their respective rollers. The combination of a big date and full text for the days and months confers upon Chapter Two a legibility unprecedented for a triple calendar wristwatch.

Chapter Two’s technically groundbreaking movement was developed in close collaboration by its highly experienced master watchmakers and was extensively tested, refined, and decorated until Chapter Two satisfied their most exigent standards. In particular, the mechanism for driving the rollers demanded significant technical and inventive reflection to obtain the most efficient and reliable system possible. The fact that the big date and both rollers change instantaneously bears testament to the success of their innovative design and high-precision manufacture.

Available in 18K white or red gold, each model is limited to 50 pieces. Prices start at $72,000.00
