This exceptional timepiece by Maîtres du Temps was launched in 2014 on the occasion of the 5th Anniversary of the launch of the Chapter Two OriginalThis new model underlines even stronger the architectural aspect of the collection through its Art Deco inspired dial on which the bold indices majestically indicate the hours.
The Chapter Two collection features an instantaneous triple calendar displayed in large format thanks to the innovative high precision cylinders that in fact makes it the most legible mechanical calendar wristwatch in the world. Its outstanding movement is imbedded in a shaped case that expresses the strength and character of this collection.
The Cylinders represent the essential DNA of Maîtres du Temps. They are manufactured in Anticorodal, an alloy of manganese, aluminum and magnesium which is resistant to oxidation and corrosion. The artisanal process of decoration of the cylinders requires several weeks of precise work, from the individual engraving of the day and month to the handmade coloring. Each step of the process needs a specific know-how and unique care.
The fluidity of the design of the distinctive tonneau shaped case hides its complex architecture and sophisticated design. Every single aspect of this timepiece is the result of refined and meticulous work:the inner lines of the lugs follow the wavy curves of the case giving it a unique harmony, while the day, date and month correctors have their functions engraved to facilitate their simple use.
Looking through the octagon-shaped sapphire crystal of the display back into the beautifully decorated movement within, the eye is immediately drawn to the richly engraved symbolically goblet-shaped rotor of the automatic winding system. The intricate pannier guilloche decorating the rotor’s center provides a noble counterpoint to the text around the rotor’s periphery that reads Masters and Their Craft—A Lifelong Pursuit of Excellence.
The richly hand-decorated movement features a veritable melody of harmonious fine finishing, from the sunray Côtes de Genève on the bridges with their perfectly beveled edges, to the helical spirals and perlage on the mainplate, to the mirror-polished screw heads.
