Independent watch maker & AHCI member Aaron Becsei announces his new wristwatch collection: BEXEI Dignitas 2010. The most complicated piece of the collection is Tourbillon Diagonal featuring a new exceptional (patent pending) solution.
Following the principle of creating only self designed and developed handmade timepieces the new Dignitas collection continues the concepts of providing limited, unique solutions for prestigious individuals.
TOURBILLON DIAGONAL, the most complicated piece of Bexei Workshop’s new collection, has a unique tourbillon placed in diagonal position (patent pending solution). Aaron Becsei’s latest invention reaches double improvement on the disadvantageous effects of gravity: the diagonal arrangement reduces the amplitude’s difference between the vertical and horizontal positions where the wristwatches are mainly positioned (day: on the wrist / night: on the desk); and the tourbillon system compensates the disequilibrium of the balance wheel.
This timepiece fascinates the observer with exceptional complications for the hour, minute and second indication: a jumping display to show the hour, a retrograde minute-hand; and seconds are indicated on the diagonal positioned conic section-dial of the tourbillon system.
Dignitas TOURBILLON DIAGONAL was imagined for whom the idea of high-end quality and precision combined with uncompromising luxury is irresistible.
