DE TOURNEMIRE is a Swiss luxury watch brand founded by Jean-Jérôme and Jean-Gabriel Marteau. The brand draws its strength from the Marteau family with more than 60 years of expertise in crafting fine jewellery creations and watch making tradition of its home country. The major attraction of every DE TOURNEMIRE watch is the perfect harmony of the movement and the center stone, a first in the history of luxury Swiss watch making.

Visible through the sapphire crystal glass on both sides, the movement powering this timepiece also employs high grade of finishing techniques in addition to its superior chronometric functions.

Particular attention is paid to crafting each piece of the movement. The beveling shows a perfectionist approach and outline the hand-polished components through the play of shimmering light.
