Molnar Fabry Classic Art Tourbillon Piece unique

The Classic Art Tourbillon incorporating the caliber CCR97 by Christophe Claret (one-minute tourbillon, 21’600 vibrations/hour) could be qualified as the twin to Tourbillon Art Nouveau. In comparison to the latter, this bespoke watch exudes a more masculine and less extravagant vibe.
The overall white-grey toning is enhanced by the rose gold plating used on the balance wheel and the adornment is pared down to a ring of diamonds around the movement with classical red jewels, complemented by blued hands  and  screws. 
The  sober  temperament  of  this  piece  is  emphasized  by  the  techniques  of sandblasting and beveling on the edges, applied on the front side.
Its case back is decorated by banknote engraving in Art nouveau spirit. On  the  contrary,  the  movement  ticking  here  is  a  two-color  variation  combining  black  and  white rhodium.
The barrel bridge was naturally hand skeletonized and it took 3 months to craft this unique timepiece.
