In March this year, Swiss luxury watch brand Ateliers deMonaco has introduced a special edition watch from its Admiral Chronographe Flyback collection in partnership with Prato Automobiles, the manufacturer of super cars. Now, a new rose gold edition enhances this collection.
Its shiny 18K rose gold polished case houses the brand’s automatic hand-decorated dMc-760 caliber – the heart of the patented Flyback complication which offers its wearer, a single gesture to go from one measurement of time to another. Protecting this complex mechanical core, a delicate carbon fiber and 18K rose gold dial. Thanks to a specific technique often used in the automotive industry, each dial is meticulously finished and, more importantly, unique.
A face further enhanced by black PVD treated applied roman numerals and the Prato logo. Finally, the counters and Dauphine hands complete the timepiece offering a powerful and playful contrast with the rich, textured dial.
The in-house caliber is composed of 226 components split in two essential parts. The first is the base movement, intended to bring to life the hours, minutes and seconds of the watch. The second is the module carrying the flyback chronograph mechanism, which relies on 96 components. The movement is assembled by hand by the brand’s skillful watchmakers, a long and delicate process which requires both experience and finesse.
