Manufacture Royale presents the new 1770 Micromegas Revolution, a timepiece featuring a double flying tourbillon with two different rotation speeds named in tribute to a legendary character imagined by Voltaire.
The 1770 Micromegas Revolution is a groundbreaking timepiece featuring a dial display that is at once revolutionary and captivating, both technically and visually. Two flying tourbillons spin at two different rotation speeds, one at 6 seconds and the other at 60 seconds. An hour hand tracks a subdial while a skeletonized turning disc indicates minutes. Together with an oscillating automatic rotor, these elements all combine to interpret the passing of time in an anthology of revolving indications.
The two tourbillons will immediately capture and hold your attention while you delight in their de-synchronization. The two revolving and revolutionary cages are supported by delicately chiseled ruthenium bridges, offering a display that enthralls. A rotor oscillates in the upper dial, flanked on the right by a subdial indicating hours, and both elements have a superimposed rotating skeletonized minute disk floating on top of them.
