Both beautiful and technical, the new Abyss boasts a fully hand-finished dial that reveals a manufacture movement crafted to the same high-standard finish as the dial itself. It features the distinctive “Rose des Vents” compass rose finish, housed in a rose gold case with swivelling horns.
The Maison’s new Abyss is designed to reveal its in-house calibre, at the same time as showing off beautifully accomplished detailing. With this twofold appearance, the Abyss Automatic Tourbillon watch appeals both to those with an aesthetic bent and to connoisseurs of Haute Horlogerie mechanical movements.
Finding a fresh take on the “three hands and date” timepiece theme is one of the greatest challenges of all; over the centuries, everything seems to have been done already. Accordingly, when Manufacture Hysek takes up the challenge, it does so with all the deference due to great watchmakers – as well as with the clear desire to improve on their work in its own way.
The calibre is regulated by a flying tourbillon positioned at 10 o’clock. Generously skeletonized and with no upper bridge, it turns at the rate of one revolution every sixty seconds. Its broad gold-coloured balance wheel is offset by the dark finish of the movement, drawing the gaze to its hypnotic motion. Above it glide two large gold-coloured hands coated with Super-LumiNova. The hands, manufactured individually at Hysek, ensure the Abyss delivers optimum readability in all circumstances. There is a third power reserve hand at 7 o’clock. Although more discreet, it nevertheless has its own hexagonal cutout shape, topped by a luminous, skeletonized tip.
This relatively humble, secondary hand demonstrates Hysek’s attention to the tiniest detail and the minutest aspects of the finish. Cutting and polishing it require the most expert talent. The result embodies both Hysek’s knowhow and its identity. Opposite this hand, a slim ‘comma’ set on the dial marks the progress of the 68-hour power reserve.
During rewinding operations, the cutout in the plate allows the user to admire the cogs driven by the crown as they wind up the barrel and reset the timepiece.
The date indicator is located on a dial with smooth, curving cutouts, each arching gracefully about the movement and hands. At midday, this subtle outline delineates an additional plate on which the word “Hysek” is engraved in golden letters. A Rose des Vents compass rose finish is fully hand engraved on the dial. The end result is that the Abyss Automatic Tourbillon exudes a deep, profound light.
The overall harmony of the piece is sustained by a 44 mm-diameter pink gold case fitted with Hysek’s distinctive swivelling horns. This unique system allows the Abyss to fit snugly onto any wrist, achieving exactly the right dimensions without being too tight. The case is covered by a sapphire bezel with golden hour indicators. The Abyss features a sapphire glass that shows off the hand finishes on each of the 467 parts to maximum effect. The frame is protected from day-to-day wear and tear by a broad side protection on the left and two crown protectors on the right-hand side.
The Abyss Automatic Tourbillon is available only in a limited edition of 88 pieces.
