Dressed in a highly precious platinum case, this unique Tourbillon timepiece has a blue mother of pearl marquetry dial that proudly boasts a cyclone inspired design with its colour gradation and subtle fragmentation.
Viewing from front, the first element to capture your eyes is the 30 second tourbillon positioned just above 6’o clock. One by one, the mother of pearl segments are placed around the tourbillon cage which represents the epicentre of cyclone. Each of the 103 pieces of mother of pearl is selected for its precise shade to ensure the ensemble produces a gradation of blues, from light in the centre, darkening as they move out towards the edge. Each segment is cut into a trapezoid figure and positioned so as to produce the effect of an explosion. The fresco is arranged concentrically around the tourbillon, and features a fractal representation of the disturbance that only a cyclone, as a force of nature, can produce. Another highlight of the dial is the 7day power reserve indicator strategically placed on its upper part.
The platinum case is set with 215 baguette diamonds, totalling 11.88 carats. The hours are indicated by faceted indices, and the power reserve highlighted by a diamond-polished, rhodium-plated applique. The Hermès strap is a remarkable shade of blue, in harmony with the tones of the marquetry dial.
