Maîtres du Temps Chapter One Round

       A very young member of the elitist watch-making industry, Maîtres du Temps is a name associated by the watch-connoisseurs with la crème de la crème, or a brand that creates highly exclusive editions defined by astonishing mechanical complexity and supreme distinction and refinement.

       Reuniting some of the heaviest names of the watch-making industry, such as Christophe Claret and Peter Speake-Marin, Maîtres du Temps is synonymous with creative passion, dedication to technological improvements, revolutionary engineering, and timeless elegance and beauty.

       Recently, Maîtres du Temps introduced their latest horological creation, the new eye-catching, elegant Maîtres du Temps Chapter One Round. A superb timepiece, the model features a remarkably sophisticated case, which hosts the brand’s unmatched mechanical complexity that impressed the watch experts and collectors worldwide, ever since the creation of the company.

       The model incorporates a mind-numbing, unique combination of horological complications- retrograde date, tourbillon, mono-pusher chronograph, and retrograde GMT functions as well as day and moon phase functions presented through two, additional rolling bars.

       The highly sophisticated architecture of the case, incorporates 96 individual components, beautifully sculpted from 18-karat red gold, and demonstrates a smart interplay of manually brushed and polished surfaces, as well as an eye-catching combination of concentric circles, carried into the design of the dial. The sophisticated architecture of the case incorporates ergonomic correctors with a slide-to-unlock feature for the optimal comfort and easy-adjustable calendar complication. Furthermore, a true connoisseur’s eye can admire the wonderfully decorated mechanism through an exhibition case back.

       The model features a surprisingly legible black dial, which displays central hours, minutes and 60-seconds chronograph, moreover, at 6 o’clock the timepiece revels its superb tourbillon complication, and, underneath the 6 o’clock location, outside the dial, the day roller. At 9 o’clock, the timepiece features a retrograde GMT counter; at 3 o’clock, the retrograde date complication, while at 12 o’clock it presents the 60-minutes chronograph sub-dial, meanwhile, outside the dial; above the 12 o’clock position, the watch features the moon phase roller.

       At the heart of the seductive Maîtres du Temps Chapter One Round watch beats a, hand wound mechanical movement, the high precision Caliber SHC02, which incorporates over 550 parts, out of which, 58-jewels. The caliber oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 alternations per hour, conferring the advantage of 60-hour power reserve.

       Especially created for a very exclusive clientele, the amazing Maîtres du Temps Chapter One Round watch belongs to a limited edition of just 11 items, and comes matched with a stylish alligator leather strap, with high-end meticulous hand finish, no wonder its price tag will be that of a luxury car, somewhere around $495,000.00.
