Haute Time: Time is Money


No wristwatch before has featured a tourbillion movement incorporating a mono-pusher column wheel chronograph, retrograde date, retrograde GMT, and phase of the moon and day of the week indications displayed on their own rolling bars, until the introduction of the Chapter One. The elegant, streamlined form, innovative indications, and ergonomic functions of watch belie the incredible complexity of its unique movement. The ease of both reading and adjusting its many indications disguises the fact that this is a world-class combination of complications crafted from 558 components. The piece earned its moniker from being in the first collection from Maîtres du Temps. No doubt the luxury world is waiting with bated breath for chapter two.
