Manufacture Royale Androgyne

Manufacture Royale is a young & dynamic luxury watch brand that passionately follows two watch-making traditions – the Swiss and the French. After the successful launch of its unique Opera timepiece in 2010-11, the brand now unveils Androgyne, a contemporary, rare and exclusive timepiece with full of character.

The Androgyne watch features a hand-wound mechanical movement regulated by a tourbillon combining classic and futuristic components to guarantee accuracy over time.
