Vincent Deprez is a French watchmaker living near Geneva. Passionate about traditional watchmaking since his childhood, he joined watchmaking apprenticeship with Vacheron Constantin at the age of 15 years. After ten years at Vacheron Constantin working in restoration, regulation, assembly, and ultra-thin watches, Vincent moved to Patek Philippe where he worked in the restoration department. In 2017 he left Patek Philippe to set up his own atelier. Vincent makes handmade watches using traditional tools.

Vincent makes the movement components (including tourbillon cage), case, and even fires his own enamel dials. The only components not made by Vincent are the strap, buckle, jewels, mainspring, balance spring, balance wheel, hands, sapphire crystals, mainspring barrel, and 90° gearing in the winding mechanism.

The dial side of the Tourbillon Classique Souscription Edition watch is dominated by a 60-second tourbillon suspended under a large, beautifully polished bridge. By positioning hours and minutes hands on a subsidiary dial, the watchmaker shows off as much of the winding and setting mechanism as possible. The visible main plate is adorned with a traditional frosted finish, which was common on historic high-end watches.

The 60-second tourbillon movement is an original Vincent Deprez design and construction. The back features a traditional frosted finish and hand-polished anlage with sharp internal angles. Jewels and screws sit in hand-polished countersinks; the screw heads are also hand-polished. A neatly concealed spring barrel click runs around the curve, following the outline of the numbered edition disk.

The hand-polished case is handmade from a blank by Vincent Deprez. The backplate framing the sapphire crystal display back is set into the case to maximize the slim profile of the watch.
