Swiss luxury watchmaker Manufacture Royale presents a new version of its openwork tourbillon movement combined with the more classic elegance from its 1770 collection.
The 1770 Manufacture Royale Tourbillon Openwork is a fascinating watch design that reveals its inner workings in complete transparency. Its components are open-worked to reveal a mechanical sculpture consisting of watch components, space, shadow and light. A feat of balance and strength, the structure of the movement revolves around the symmetry of the barrel at 12 o’clock and the tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
Manufacture Royale has opted for a flying tourbillon, a cantilevered construction where the tourbillon cage is held on one side only; in fact, it features the characteristic sword. Determinedly modern, it is mounted on ceramic bearings while its pallet and pallet wheel are in silicon. True to watch-making tradition, it is meticulously hand-finished.
The smooth curves of the 1770 case are enhanced by two side lugs held by four screws which hold the middle case to form elegant horns. Its peerless finishing testifies to the care taken with each detail. Available in steel and rose gold, it perfectly fits the wrist for optimal comfort, despite its generous 43 mm size. The slightly domed sapphire crystal and transparent caseback give an extraordinary view of the movement. The sword-shaped skeleton hands have a slightly rounded outline and show the hours and minutes on twelve markers built into the inner flange.
The Manufacture Royale 1770 Flying Tourbillon openwork watch is available on a hand-stitched, large scaled alligator strap. Fitting seamlessly onto the case, it is closed by a steel or rose gold pin buckle.
