ZENITH & FELIPE PANTONE DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 Unique Piece

A fervent supporter of the Only Watch auction since its very first edition in 2005, Zenith presents this time a unique piece of the DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon, the Manufacture’s most advanced and complex chronograph to date.

For its 9th consecutive contribution to the biennial Only Watch charity auction, Zenith brought acclaimed op artist Felipe Pantone onboard to take the codes from their highly acclaimed collaborative DEFY 21 Felipe Pantone and push the chromatic concept even further.

Extremely complex and highly technical, the DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon watch incorporates two independent regulating tourbillons operating at 5Hz for the timekeeping function of the movement and 50Hz for the 1/100th of a second chronograph, which rotate at rates of 60 seconds and 5 seconds respectively.

ZENITH & FELIPE PANTONE DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 Unique Piece

In the unique DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon Only Watch 2021, Felipe Pantone translated his acclaimed design language to the movement’s decoration as well as the open dial.

Using the principal of interference colours, the coating on the bridges reflects a gradient of metallic rainbow tones, marking the first time the innovative three-dimensional PVD with silicon particles as a surface treatment on a tourbillon chronograph movement to produce a spectrum of perfectly transitioning colours.

The entire movement is fixed within a metal container that is also given the same rainbow effect. The case back view also delights with the same rainbow PVD coating on the bridges, where “Unique Piece” is engraved on one of them under the blackened star-shaped winding rotor.

Allowing as much light as possible onto the vividly coloured inner workings of this mechanical marvel, Zenith opted for a case made entirely of transparent sapphire crystal for the first time in the Defy collection. Adored for its crystal-clear transparency and extreme hardness, synthetic sapphire requires a long series of painstaking processes to reach its final form – from precisely moulding the highly three-dimensional elements to finishing and polishing them to perfection.

On the dial side, the central hour and minute hands take on a distorted look resembling lightning bolts, a recurring element in Pantone’s work. Like the movement, a rainbow gradient of colours in PVD is applied onto the hands, while each of the applied hour markers is filled with a different colour. The moiré optical effect on the dial was produced by thin alternating white and black using fine laser-engraving and precise lacquering techniques.

The DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 comes in a special box resembling an art book, as well as an original signed artwork by Felipe Pantone. Titled “Optichromie 135 Z”, this enamel and UV paint on aluminium painting in the artist’s signature style measures 170x120cm and is in fact the artwork that Pantone created for Zenith, which was then miniaturized and reproduced for the DEFY 21 Felipe Pantone edition’s packaging.

The DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 unique piece will be auctioned by Christie’s in Geneva on November 6th 2021, with all proceeds from the sale benefitting the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathie.

Roger Dubuis – Excalibur Feng and Excalibur Long

To celebrate the new Chinese year, Roger Dubuis has created two special editions of its Excalibur Double Flying Tourbillon watch. These two exciting new timepieces reinterpret powerful symbols through unmatched craftsmanship: Excalibur Long, representing the majestic Dragon and Excalibur Feng, embodying the gracious Phoenix.

Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Feng and Excalibur Long

First in the world to introduce a double flying tourbillon, this contemporary architectural caliber is the extreme expression of the brand’s passion for recreating the codes of hyper horology.  Above and beyond its hypnotic aesthetic appeal, this calibre ensures an enhanced precision thanks to its differential system serving to average out the rate of the two tourbillons.

Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Feng and Excalibur Long

Brought to life in a 45mm masterpiece, the iconic Excalibur Double Flying Tourbillon is this time interpreted with an unbridled artistic creativity where 18K rose gold reigns supreme. With its head placed at 12 o’clock and its body and limbs intertwining with mechanical parts of the dial, the majestic dragon seems to be playing with this grand complication in a very daring way.

Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Feng and Excalibur LongThe Yin counterpart of the Dragon is here represented by the wise soul of the graceful phoenix, embracing the caliber with its wings and tail. Rarity and wisdom the Excalibur Feng is simply singular. Featuring one of the most complex of all Haute Horlogerie complications, the Excalibur Feng single flying tourbillon, with its plates and bridges pared down to extremes to only leave the essential, is a spectacular demonstration of radical watchmaking expertise.

As a flamboyant stage-setting to the highly technical nature of this tourbillon caliber, a 36mm case is here engraved with 18K rose gold. The already extraordinary allure of the Exclabur Feng is then completed with a bezel set with 48 brilliant-cut white diamonds.

Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Feng and Excalibur Long

Every part of the Feng, from the feathers to its body movement, has been fastidiously refined. Only by striking an obsessively balance in proportion and layout can the fascinating, vivid image of the Feng be brought to life, allowing it to spread its wings, with its plumage swirling around the tourbillon placed at the 7 o’clock mark.

Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Feng and Excalibur Long

These contemporary sculpted masterpieces feature a microscopic gold engraving technique – a delicate yet highly demanding craftsmanship skill highlighting their every detail: hairs, feathers, scales, and eyelids – giving life to this duo of sacred symbols in a deliberate way. A display of unparalleled expertise and craftsmanship, the Excalibur Long and Excalibur Feng are limited to eight pieces worldwide.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge

The Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge model blends mechanical virtuosity with aesthetic mastery. Its highly visible movement reveals two tourbillons that set the whole plate in motion through a central differential. Each component is hand-finished, while the back of the movement is engraved with the “House on the Quai”, the Parisian building where Abraham-Louis Breguet fulfilled his life’s work.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge

The new Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge model houses a massive mechanical movement in the proportions of a watch. Working with very limited space, the Breguet Manufacture has built a complex and harmonious universe that seemingly defies the laws of physics.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge

Like a delicately chased sculpture, the entire exposed mechanism pivots around its axis at the rate of one full turn every 12 hours. It is propelled by two independent tourbillons, which each complete a full rotation per minute. In this way, the interconnected regulating organs perform a double revolution, simultaneously driving the tourbillon bar: the signature hours hand.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge

It is a remarkable display, featuring a number of components made of gold, as were those of grand complication movements back in their day – a tradition that has now been all but lost; one that the House of Breguet endeavors to perpetuate, as it does its specialist artisan techniques. This watch is a stunning display of Breguet’s expert craftsmanship – in particular the engraving on the back, which depicts the house that Abraham-Louis Breguet acquired on Quai de l’Horloge in Paris.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge caseback

 

Indeed, it was at this inspiring address, nestled between the artisans of the Ile de la Cité, that the master watchmaker invented the mechanism that would become globally renowned and endure throughout the centuries. At a time when timepieces were worn vertically in the waistcoat pocket, Breguet strove to devise a way of negating the effects of Earth’s gravity, which was impacting on the chronometric accuracy of the movement.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge caseback

Then the idea came to him to incorporate the balance wheel and spring as well as the escapement (lever and escape wheel) in a mobile carriage rotating on itself. The master devised the name tourbillon for this double rotation of the cage and its parts, in reference to the long-forgotten notion of a planetary system. Genius in principle and captivating in operation, the invention remains the preserve of the House of Breguet, conferring a truly special originality.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge

The timekeeping parts of the Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge watch are very similar technically to the original creation. The steel balance springs are endowed with the characteristic terminal curve, allowing for concentric development of the spring. It was a solution devised by the founder himself, which has since become known as the Breguet overcoil. Even now, the balance spring is still shaped by hand, while the different calibrations are also done manually, such as balancing the tourbillon cages. These carriages are the only ones in the current collection that feature a framework in black-polished steel – the highest degree of finishing in fine horology.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge

The two mechanical hearts beat independently from one another, each driven by their own barrel. However, the two oscillating organs are coupled with a second pair of wheels, revolving in the central differential. This double-entry mechanism is able to determine the average rate of the tourbillons, allowing for the oscillating plate to be set in motion at the rate of one full rotation every 12 hours. As for the minutes indication, it is a classic hand in the center. The entire mechanism is equipped with a system to minimize play in the wheels, ensuring a perfectly precise display.

This spectacular staging makes this caliber one of the most complex systems ever developed by the Breguet Manufacture. Its mobile nature, for example, forced the engineers to entirely review the manual winding mechanism, which now relies on independent wheel trains. One of the two barrels is equipped with a friction bridle, similar to those used on self-winding watches. This astute construction allows the spring to disengage once coiled, until the second barrel is fully wound. Lastly, the crown employs a dynamometric security system, which prevents excessive winding of the springs.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge

The expertise of the art of watchmaking is never without aesthetic virtuosity at Breguet. Presented for the first time in 2006, the Double Tourbillon is now liberated from the dial, revealing itself in all of its mechanical beauty. Stylised and rounded, the barrel bridges in steel take on the form of the letter B. All the components are meticulously straight-grained, chamfered, and even satin-brushed by hand.

A true signature of the House, the hand-engraving on a rose engine (guilloché work) finds a new field of expression on the movement, replacing the traditional circular graining. Laid bare as it is, the caliber exposes the inner flank of the caseband, from which the hand-engraved Roman numerals stand out echoing in their design those of the sapphire hours chapter.

Breguet Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge caseback

Yet the unique character of this timepiece is fully revealed on its back. The treasures of mechanical ingenuity assembled for the movement leave in their wake timeless poetry. The timepiece is completed with an engraving, crafted by the artisans of the Manufacture, featuring the facade of the building occupied by Abraham-Louis Breguet from 1775 onward, at 39 Quai de l’Horloge, Paris. Etched into gold, the work abounds in such meticulous detail that through the window-panes a glimpse may be caught of the wheels of the caliber.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia

The Excalibur Superbia by Roger Dubuis is an ultimate contemporary mechanical watch created exclusively for elite clientele who follow larger than life attitude. This high complication watch is crafted in palladium-enriched white gold and set with exactly 600 precious white diamonds and blue sapphires.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia

This extraordinary hyperwatch offers a truly extravagant housing for Roger Dubuis iconic signature calibre: a brand-new double flying tourbillon movement, the RD108SQ, inspired by its legendary version launched in 2005, the first double-regulator calibre connected with a differential, built up in volume and adorned with a diamond-set star.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia

For the RD108SQ, paying tribute to Roger Dubuis’ status as a forerunner in the field of this extreme complication mastered by few other watchmakers, in the RD108SQ, the double flying tourbillon is transformed into the ultimate iconic signature.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia

Adorned with 600 white diamonds and 238 blue sapphire stones, this timepiece with a massive 45mm white gold case showcases the expertise of the Maison’s  Gem-setters. However, the exclusiveness of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia watch comes neither from its alloy nor its number of stones. What makes it truly bold is that every stone set on the flange, the bezel, the case and the crown is tetrahedron shaped and assembled with an invisible setting on curved surfaces.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Superbia

In the grand tradition of memento mori pocket watches, the movement of the Excalibur Superbia is secretly inscribed with the words Memento mori, a detail that will henceforth feature on each Hyperwatch created by the Maison.

Louis Moinet Space Revolution Limited Edition

Independent Swiss luxury watch brand Louis Moinet presents Space Revolution, its latest haute-horlogerie creation inspired by the interstellar world.

The Space Revolution is a flying satellite double tourbillon watch that recreates an extraterrestrial sight comprising of space stations and spaceships on its dial.

Louis Moinet Space Revolution Limited Edition

Two spaceships battle it out beneath a sapphire crystal dome, facing off eighteen times an hour: the upper spacecraft completes a clockwise rotation every five minutes, whilst the lower vessel turns in the opposite direction, completing a counter-clockwise revolution every ten minutes. Meanwhile, two constantly revolving space stations stage a powerful defense against the effects of gravity.

To ensure they can float freely in space, the craft weigh barely 0.5 grammes each and are made entirely from titanium, with a hybrid ceramic colour finish applied by hand. Their movement can be measured in terms of the speed of light – almost 300,000,000 metres per second. The depths of space have been reproduced by inserting a floating flange between the cylinder and the sapphire crystal dome.

Louis Moinet Space Revolution Limited Edition

The Space Revolution features an 18 carat rose gold case topped with an imposing sapphire crystal dome. The watch case measures 43.50 mm diameter and the sapphire dome has a diameter of 41.60 mm. The case has been fully redesigned. Made from polished, satin-finish gold, the base supports the sapphire crystal dome, allowing the magic to be admired from the side as well as from above.

The mechanism is wholly unprecedented. Initially deemed to be impossible, the design required more than three years of research. Today, construction of this supremely sophisticated architecture requires painstaking work by a handful of outstanding watchmakers.

The movement comprises two oscillators, each equipped with a differential mechanism to provide greater precision. Each watch has over 470 components and six ceramic ball bearings to ensure perfect rotation and balance of all revolving parts (the spaceships, the tourbillon cages, and the centre of the titanium gold frame).

Even the winding and time-setting mechanisms stand apart from other timepieces: a function selector integrated in the caseback toggles between the two.

Louis Moinet Space Revolution Limited Edition

To complement the deep space effect, cutting-edge technology endows the dial with light-absorbing properties, achieved by laser nano-structuring on a titanium base that creates wells to capture the light.

The individual nature of each watch offers an opportunity for Louis Moinet to reassert its identity as a specialist in extra-terrestrial materials. Each timepiece in this limited edition of eight is truly unique, thanks to the meteorite fragment placed beneath the centre of the hands on the watch. One is from the Moon, another from Mars, another again from the oldest known rock in the solar system; still another is a fragment containing amino acids…

Arnold & Son DTE (Double Tourbillon Escapement Dual Time Watch) White Gold Limited Edition

Arnold & Son announces a new white gold version of its Double Tourbillon Escapement Dual Time watch (DTE), a marvel of mechanical mastery and aesthetic elegance.

Renowned for its innovative technology and technical prowess Arnold & Son continually brings horological excellence to new heights. Such is the case with the new DTE reference, which joins the brand’s much-coveted Instrument Collection, whose signature is in-house manufactured movements inspired by the timepieces produced during the second part of John Arnold’s life when he and his son, John Roger, dedicated themselves to the quest for absolute precision.

The DTE is a masterpiece of symmetry, balance and three-dimensional beauty combined with technical foresight and ultimate performance precision.

The watch, powered by the mechanical hand-wound calibre A&S8513, brings the centuries-old tradition of double movements back to life – in 21stcentury style. It features two separate time zone displays – each of which can be set independently from the other thanks to dedicated setting mechanisms. Each has its own gear train and its own tourbillon escapement.

Arnold and Son DTE Limited edition watch white gold version with Silvery opaline dial

In addition to the double tourbillon escapement and the dual dial/dual time indication, the watch is incredibly efficient in that it not only offers local time in hours and minutes, but also offers hours and minutes of a second time zone to be set separately – thereby enabling the wearer to have precise time in zones that differ from Greenwich Mean Time by quarter- or half-hour increments. The double barrels of the watch offer a superb 90 hours of power reserve.

In typical Arnold & Son style, the watch is incredibly detailed and features superlative Haute Horlogerie finishing. The dial side of the timepiece offers symmetry and depth.

It features two silvery opaline dials – one each at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock – for the dual time displays. The two tourbillon escapements are harmoniously balanced at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock and seem to float over the dial thanks to their alluring raised 18-carat white gold bridges.

The backdrop for these double dials and double tourbillon escapements is a magnificently decorated vertical Côtes de Genève stripes plate treated in NAC grey. The two crowns – one each for setting the local and the home time – are located at 2 o’clock and 8 o’clock, and the two mainsprings are wound using the crown at 2 o’clock.

Arnold and Son DTE Limited edition watch white gold version with Silvery opaline dial

The 43.5 mm DTE is created in 18-carat white gold. The silvery opaline dials (with Roman numerals in one and Arabic numerals in the other) are accented with blued hour and minute hands.

The back of the watch features a transparent sapphire crystal for viewing the splendidly decorated nickel-silver movement with NAC grey treatment.
