Manufacture Royale is enriching the 1770 Voltige line with a new version, the 1770 Haute Voltige. Manufacture Royale designed it as an aspiration to freedom, with an easy-to-set second time zone and a raised balance wheel that dominates the dial.
The 1770 Haute Voltige encourages the freedom to travel by offering a choice of two time zones, directly adjustable by the crown. The 1770 Haute Voltige is freed from the constraint of one single time and instils a taste for adventure. In this highly ethereal composition, Manufacture Royale has raised the balance wheel and counter on the second time zone above the dial, like a stunt-flying demonstration.
The construction offers a view of the oscillations of the ultra-light balance wheel and the motion of the escapement, the beating heart of the watch.
Positioned at 5 o'clock, the small dial of the second time zone contrasts with the sunray of the main dial through a quilted pattern and fine polished rim. Open-worked hands indicating the reference time and full hands on the second time zone complete the very characteristic architecture of the 1770 Haute Voltige, for optimal legibility.
The Calibre MR07 beats inside this timepiece is the 7th developed by Manufacture Royale since its rebirth in 2010 and thus demonstrates the creative energy and skills brought together in its manufacture. This calibre highlights a double technical feat: a central hour-and-minute display linked to an off-centre secondary time zone display.
The hand-finishing of the Calibre MR07 is visible through the transparent sapphire caseback. The connoisseur will notice the three bridges including a very ethereal one whose shape, imitating that of the rotor, gives a view of the multiple movement wheels.
The 45 mm diameter steel case features the aesthetic and technical codes of the 1770 collection. It features two lateral stretcher pieces that grip the central part and form the horns at each end. Four screws fix them to the case on the side. The lines are taut, both gentle and powerful, and give the 1770 Haute Voltige the energy and flexibility of a genuine instrument for travellers.
