REVELATION R07 LEGEND

Swiss luxury watch brand REVELATION unveils the R07 LEGEND, an extreme version of MAGICAL WATCH DIAL® in a stunning new case. This innovative mechanical timepiece uses the patented REVELATION SYSTEM® which makes each REVELATION watch unique in watchmaking. When the bezel is turned 90 degrees, the intensely dark dial clears to allow the secondary information–the « Grande Date » and the «Jours Retrogrades » - to appear.

This ingenious concept - protected by several patents - was invented by Anouk Danthe and Olivier Leu in 2007 when they founded the watch brand REVELATION.
It allows indicating and prioritizing information in a watch to preserve a clear view of the time while accessing the fascinating world of the movement and other secondary indications.
The original optical nanotechnologies of the REVELATION SYSTEM® i.e. the custom-made polarized glasses that modify the appearance of the MAGICAL WATCH DIAL® in the Sport Chic collections are replaced by cut-out designed elements.
These parts are coupled with the mechanical components of the REVELATION SYSTEM® in an audacious manner which transforms the MAGICAL WATCH DIAL® in a totally different and new way. The R07 LEGEND MAGICAL WATCH DIAL® movement was engineered by Dubois Dépraz in the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland. A special production was requested by REVELATION to permit the housing of the REVELATION SYSTEM®.
While maintaining the recognisable overall design of the historical models, parts of the new R07 were modified to create an ultra masculine watch, which inaugurates the Grand Sport collections. The case of the R07 LEGEND was designed to merge harmoniously the most advanced materials such as Carbon Hybrid® or laminated carbon with traditional titanium or black DLC stainless steel cases, the two models presented in 2015 and in a near future with precious metals such as gold and platinum.
The technical concept and design of the straps are also an innovation. Thanks to a special attachment integrating the famous studs - which are an integral part of the DNA of the brand - the unique identity of REVELATION is preserved while the studs maintain their specific function. The special beaded leather requested an unusual conception. The R07 LEGEND MAGICAL WATCH DIAL® is proposed with the REVELATION pin buckle or, on request, with a folding buckle.
