Footnotes

  • The Sapphire plates allow the visual beauty and simplicity of the movement to be shown to its best advantage. Since the time of Breguet's watch for Marie Antoinette transparent plates have been reserved for watches with the highest levels of finish showing what is usually hidden from view by the dial, case and solid plates.

    This carrousel unusually turns once every minute like many Tourbillons but is connected to the barrel by two gear trains: the first delivers the energy required for the operation of the escapement, while the second controls the carriage rotation speed.
