With an power reserve of 42 hours, the movement has an off-centre micro-oscillating weight in 950 platinum. It lends itself to a wide range of aesthetic variations and boasts Haute Horlogerie finishes which only a few manufactures would apply to such a mechanism: the nickel silver main plate is sand-blasted, circular-grained then rhodium-plated, the bridges are sand-blasted, drawn out or “Côte de Genève” decorated, then hand-bevelled and rhodium-plated. Also note the attractive finish of each wheel, bevelled, sunk, circular-grained on both faces, then gilded before cutting.
