Switzerland based independent luxury watch brand CABESTAN unveils their latest timepiece, Terra Luna. This exceptional mechanical timepiece is designed by world renowned master watch maker Eric Coudray.
This complication timepiece combines the typical technology of vertical capstan wheels, chain and fuse, with a sumptuous moon phase in 3-dimensions. By this additional complication, the knowledge and the mechanical exclusive creation are highlighting the potential of this Geneva watch brand. The sapphire crystal in giant screen, which represents a large window facing the sky, allows us to observe the mechanism of the watch and more particularly the 3D moon, as do astronomers from their observatories.
This exceptional piece is composed of a manually wound movement: caliber CAB EC 102L, with 46 rubies. The mechanism indicates the hours, minutes, seconds and power reserve by drums, one characteristic of this collection. The time is semi-jumping for easier reading. The 3D moon at the center of the mechanism makes a total rotation within 29.5 days, as a real moon phase. It is represented by a sphere of 7.40 mm diameter.
The torque is transmitted from the drum barrel to the fuse via a chain. This concept allows a constant torque transmission throughout the power reserve (72 hours), ensuring greater accuracy in the measurement of time. The regulating component is composed of a tourbillon with a spring balance which has a frequency of 3Hz making one rotation per minute. The balance spring has a Breguet terminal curve and a Geneva stud. An end plate uniformly distributes the curve of the spring. The winding and time-setting are manually adjusted by two distinct crowns; a third one allows the setting of the moon.
