Crafted by Swiss watch maker Rexhep Rexhepi, the AkriviA Tourbillon Regulator successfully alliances minimalist exteriors with an haute horlogerie complication. The broad lugs are chamfered in a manner reflecting the bevelling on the calibre; the grey dial features a “polished-matt” finish that is both vintage and innovative. While it recalls the sandblasted bridges of pocket watches, the AkriviA “polished-matt” effect differs from habitual sandblasting in terms of its means of application: the crushed stone is mixed with vegetable oil and applied using a new handcrafted technique.
The only fanciful aspect of the dial is the regulator-type arrangement of its indication, with the hours counter at 12 o’clock, the central axis bearing the minutes hand only, and the seconds hand fixed to the tourbillon at 6 o’clock. The latter is indeed the only clue to the exceptional nature of this timepiece: the austerity of the exterior finishes highlights the wealth of finishes lavished on the movement. This simple dial opening reveals a bridge featuring eight inward angles and which bears the escapement block.
One of its major characteristics is its complete symmetry: it nobly comprises two third wheels so as to ensure optimal visual balance. This rare construction, combined with a high level of finishing, reflects Rexhep Rexhepi’s perfectionism: nothing is left to chance and nothing is done just because it has to be.
