Skeleton-working an ultra-thin calibre is an exercise that demands the savoir-faire of the most experienced master engravers in order to openwork the movement as much as possible without compromising its rigidity, its resistance or its reliability. The EmperadorCoussin 1270S is the end result of adding the complexity of the infinitely small to the constraints implied by a horological complication and its numerous components, further compounded by the automatic winding mechanism –bearing in mind that most skeleton movements on the market are hand-wound. It took no less than three years to develop this exceptional calibre, to accommodate 225 parts within a barely 5.05-millimetre area and to skeleton-work it while ensuring impeccable operation.
Precise calculations and painstaking development work made it possible to exalt the totally unique and identifiable aesthetic of the shaped 1270S calibre, one of the world’s thinnest tourbillon automatic skeleton movements at just 5.05 mm thick. In addition to the majestic tourbillon, the inverted structure of this movement provides a view of the platinum oscillating weight and bridges.
The new Emperador Coussin is available in two different versions. With its intense black touches applied to the hands, the micro-rotor, the screws and the tourbillon carriage, the white gold variation exudes a resolutely modern appeal; while the pink gold version is endowed with more classic and traditional assets including an extremely exclusive all-gold movement.
