Cyril Brivet-Naudot, the creative watchmaker based in Saint Germain, France presents his latest timepiece, the Eccentricity Réserve de Marche.
In 2018, Cyril Brivet-Naudot introduced Eccentricity, an entirely hand-made mechanical wristwatch. Two and a half years after the presentation of Eccentricity to the public, the watchmaker crafted a power reserve variant for a customer on request. Just like its predecessor, the Réserve de Marche was entirely designed and handcrafted in his Breton workshop, without the use of numerically controlled machines or subcontracting.
The Eccentricity Réserve de Marche takes the Eccentricity model as its starting point, with its key winding and locking mechanism, its eccentric free escapement and its original display. This base becomes more complex to allow its owner to know the amount of energy remaining in the barrel spring. The new model has a power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock.
Technically, the quest for aesthetics and a transparency bias guided the mechanical choices, notably the use of a screw differential with a polished steel cone and a minimalist silver ring dial. The mechanism, spread over both sides of the watch so as not to overload any of them, succeeded in keeping the watch sober despite the hundred or so components added by the complication.
The Eccentricity Réserve de Marche model comes in a 38.5mm case, with an alligator leather strap.
