Molnar Fabry Carpe Noctem

This one-of-a-kind timepiece watch was specially created for Molnar Fabry’s long time customer. This classic dress watch in 18ct pink gold case measures 42mm diameter. It houses a modified and hand-decorated Vaucher VMF 5401 automatic movement.

Made in Switzerland, the Vaucher VMF 5401 automatic calibre features micro-rotor winding mechanism and provides up to 48 hours of power reserve. This exceptional self-winding mechanical movement was modified, skeletonised and hand-decorated in the Molnar Fabry workshop before putting it into the watch.

The skeletonising of the bridges and the main plate was complicated because of the thickness on some places; on the top side Molnar Fabry added a small bridge that holds the hour wheel.

The craftsmen then created a new micro-rotor in 18ct gold, and then decorated with engraving and natural ruby. The retail price of this watch model is approximately 35000 Euros without taxes.
