Double Rétrograde Manufacture Automatique

Never Stop Moving: the Kinetics of Time

In a clear, striking contrast, the fine pink-gold hands skim round the blue dial, their diamond-cut finish further enhanced by their gently curved shape. The absence of an arbor hole confirms traditional design where attention to the minutest detail is taken to its extreme. The purity, the quiet poise of the design that emanates from these timepieces cannot fail to evoke the most beautiful architectural creations where design, distilled to its purest essence, transfigures form and function. Perfect visual harmony and crystal-clear legibility testify explicitly to this.
The finish, even of the tiniest component, invisible after the watch is assembled, can be seen through the sapphire crystal case backs. Their 16½ line diameter makes them among the largest automatic calibers in the market. In response to the expectations of a demanding public for whom performance is a way of life, the new automatic Masterpiece watches are also available in steel in a more popular case size of 43 mm, with two dial finishes, black and silver-plated.

About the movement

  Exclusively developed in our own workshop, the ML 191 movement takes the precision craftsmanship of the ML 151 and adds to it a self-winding mechanism. Along with the ML 190, this is not only our fi rst automatic manufacture calibre but also the largest of its kind in the world.
