Ocean Tourbillon GMT

The Ocean Tourbillon GMT combines a tourbillon, one of fine watchmaking’s most sophisticated and technically challenging complications, with a dual time-zone function.

The dial has been redesigned with in a dynamic new all-black interpretation, in which the dual time zone displays and the tourbillon are arranged in overlapping circles, leading the eye around the dial in a composition of precisely arranged elements. This multi-level composition places the tourbillon in the foreground, where its hypnotic rotation draws the viewer in; mounted on the central axis of the tourbillon is a seconds hand rotating, as the tourbillon does, once per minute.

The time zone to which the local time display is set is shown by a pointer indicating a reference city, revealed in an aperture at the top of the dial. A day/night indication for the second time zone completes the wealth of information presented legibly.

The timepiece is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement comprised of 550 parts finished to the highest standards of haute horlogerie, hand chamfered with vertical Côtes de Genève and black ruthenium treatment. It offers a power-reserve of 110 hours.

A hand-sewn black matte alligator leather strap, with 18K rose gold ardillon buckle, completes this lavish watch.

The Ocean Tourbillon GMT is available in a strictly limited edition of 100 pieces worldwide: 50 pieces in 18K white gold and 50 pieces in 18K rose gold.
