True to its technical excellence and aesthetic vision, luxury watch brand Ateliers deMonaco presents for Baselworld a new exclusive version of its most emblematic model, the Tourbillon Oculus - a masterpiece of precision watchmaking.
The number 1297 of the Tourbillon Oculus pays a tribute to the ascent of the Grimaldi Family in the year 1297. When Francois Grimaldi seized the fortress of Monaco from a rival Italian faction. Disguised as a monk, he successfully led a small army into the fortress. The legacy of his daring victory is recorded on Monaco's coat of arms, which bears two monks brandishing swords with the lozenge pattern in the middle. The iconic and distinctive form of Ateliers deMonaco.
Reinterpretation and high-innovation are the two words that governed the creation of the Tourbillon Oculus 1297. Characterized by its modern look, with its off-centered dial at 12 o’clock and its dial aperture with the tourbillon at 6 o’clock; this new timepiece is pure perfection.
Within the titanium case of 44mm, a fusion takes place between the technical mastery involved in producing watchmaking complications and the high aesthetic standards and virtuosity required in jewellery making. Indeed, the Tourbillon Oculus 1297 has a beautiful royal blue dial which has been embellished with relief lozenges.
Inserted into the upper part of the dial, the hours and minutes counter is a lovely embodiment of classical codes featuring Roman numeral indexes and dauphine shaped hands. The Ateliers deMonaco watchmakers have thus achieved a seamless blend of classicism and modernity in a single watch - offering a timepiece with a highly contrasted and bold design.
Produced and assembled by the Ateliers deMonaco watchmakers in Geneva, the Tourbillon Oculus 1297is powered by its own in-house patented Tourbillon XP1 movement, which drives the hours, minutes along with the small seconds. With an average tolerance between o-2 seconds per 24 hours this calibre is one of the most accurate tourbillon movements in the world today and bears witness to the Manufacture’s excellence.
The royal blue alligator leather strap and the titanium-folding buckle add a unique lustre to this exceptional timepiece. The Tourbillon Oculus 1297 also comes with a grey dial fitted either in a rose gold or white gold case. Similar to every masterpiece, each model of the range is limited to only 88 pieces.
