The glittering tourbillon appears to float inside an invisible case made from a single sapphire disk. Sculpting and polishing its curves to produce such extreme transparency required over 200 hours of work and hundreds of operations with techniques perfected over two centuries.

Viewing its sensational aerial volumes feels as if stargazing through a telescope. The sapphire crystal box that extends from the case delivers this intergalactic 360° view. Achieving the perfect gloss within the movement required three times more sapphire than standard with a unique diamond and chemical polish.

The watch glitters with starry lustre when light radiates across its movement and Ruthenium barrel. Selected for its diamond-like brilliance, Ruthenium is a rare platinum metal in extremely limited production. It forms dazzling crystals that burst with sparkling light in all directions on the watch face.
