The Manufacture Bulgari unveils the new Carillon Tourbillon (Daniel Roth Collection), a three hammer Grande Sonnerie (grand strike) timepiece that also houses a tourbillon. This timepiece offers the rarest carillon function for striking watches: a striking mechanism playing at least three notes. The Bulgari Carillon Tourbillon uses three hammers – one of the most refined and therefore most uncommon configurations. The Bulgari watches have lavished infinite care on making them as slender as possible so as to ensure the most delicate and melodious of sounds.
The energy stored by the watch is distributed to this impressively sophisticated movement, built around a Tourbillon. The mechanical hand-wound Manufacture Calibre DR3300 comprises 327 parts artfully arranged around the large tourbillon carriage. The two horological complications – the tourbillon and the carillon featuring an exceptionally pleasing chime – are entirely complementary. It houses two barrels: One keeps the striking mechanism running and is automatically rewound when the latter is armed, while the other guarantees a minimum 75-hour power reserve.
Alternating between polished steel parts – hammer, gongs, tourbillon carriage – and open-worked surfaces, the finely decorated main-plate and bridges are given an elegant NAC surface treatment, an alloy exclusively composed of noble metals: platinum, rhodium, ruthenium and indium.
More rigorously restrained than ever and graced with clean-cut, straight hour-markers, this highly contemporary new version sheds the complex ornamentation of its predecessor to achieve greater maturity, elegance and finesse. The facetted sapphire crystal globe ensures even more precise readings and avoids any glinting.
