In 2015, Laurent Picciotto of Chronopassion acquired a unique, horological masterpiece from H. Moser & Cie. worth 1 million Swiss Francs. This unique Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time Sapphire Skeleton timepiece features a new skeleton movement, a case made entirely from sapphire and a 3D printed strap. Impressed with this horological beauty, Laurent once again approached the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture to create another model with a sapphire case.
The Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time Sapphire Blue Skeleton is equipped with a second time zone, indicated by a red, rhodium-plated hand, which is concealed beneath the main hour hand when the function is not in use. It also features an interchangeable minute tourbillon equipped with an original Straumann Double Hairspring®, a stroke of genius for a watch that is truly a part of the history of time, and which transcends the advantages of a simple tourbillon.
