The world’s only calibre capable of housing six retrograde seconds mechanisms stages a fascinating ballet of six hands dancing across ten-second periods that instantly draws the gaze and positions this timepiece firmly in the category of “showtime” complications. In the notable absence of a dial, its broad and eminently visible central bridge provides unlimited space for brand aficionados to make their individual model even more exclusive and personal. On this first limited-edition interpretation, the hexagonal central going train bridge is adorned with a skull motif that has become a classic theme in contemporary watchmaking. A distinctive laser-engraving technique creates a striking play on light and shade exploring the many nuances of grey. Contrasting shades outline the shape of the skull using the “light trapping” method, offering a fascinating means of marrying metal with this promising form of expertise.

Its 47.5 mm-diameter case is made of steel and black PVD-coated titanium, set in this version with 240 brilliant-cut totalling approx. 1.10 cts.
