Masterpiece Seconde Mysterieuse

Baselworld 2013 novelty : available Q4 2013

Manufacture movement and the twelfth to be entirely developed in-house – the mysterious hand marks out a linear reading of the seconds, in alternating horizontal anf vertica 15-second cycles. The blued hand turning on its axis, as though in full levitation, produces the captivating optical illusion. The mechanical mystery behind this impressive feat remains a unsolved. The hours are displayed at 2 o'clock and are also indicated by metallic blued hands, while the rest of the dial is skeletonized around the movement bridges, in a striking geometrical style that is very contemporary and available in two versions, coated in either rhodium or ruthenium. The self-winding ML215 mechanical movement is visible through the sapphire-crystal back of the 43 mm diameter steel case. Its finishing automatically places it in an exclusive category of timepieces offered only by the very finest workmanships. The Masterpiece Seconde Mystérieuse is available in two limited series of 125 pieces each.
