Maîtres du Temps Chapter One Round Transparence Watch
By Jovan Krstevski
Chapter One Round Transparence takes center stage as the latest evolution of the Chapter One collection. This collection is the first global combination of complications, including a tourbillon, mono-pusher chronograph, retrograde date, retrograde second time zone, and two bars rotating idiosyncratic indicating the day of the week and moon phase. The collection is the key essence of Maîtres du Temps and has become a classic among favorable press articles and opinions of collectors throughout the world.
The sapphire dial designed for Transparence no doubt it is a work of art and engineering example of high level of accuracy. Ultra thin with only 0.40 mm, laser cut and drilled more than twenty times, to provide anchors which firmly adjusted sconces that mark the passage of time. The demanding process of machining the path of minutes, multi-beveled, which includes hand-painted Superluminova indexes illustrates the level of detail in Chapter One Round Transparence is not limited only to the movement.
Equally remarkable is the addition of the chronograph bridge , precious metal finish , visible through the back of the screen octagonal sapphire . Through a patented process plating four precious metal belonging to the platinum -platinum , rhodium, ruthenium and palladium combine to give the chronograph bridge their dark appearance only , which is only found in Chapter One Transparence collection.
The collection Chapter One , then and now with the Chapter One Transparence , is a work of art more watchmaker, both interior and exterior . Long flowing compound curves through corrura and housing , imparting a sense of nobility and power without leaving traces of the complexity involved . Therefore the ease of reading as to adjust the various indications hide the fact that the micromechanical movement that operates this master piece is made of 558 components.
The dial reveals central coaxial hours, minutes , and chronograph 60-second counter , roll tourbillon and day of the week at 6 , retrograde second time zone at 9 , chronograph 60-minute counter and moon phase roller accurate 12 , and retrograde date at 3.
Meticulous attention to every detail through the design and execution of all facets of development has resulted in an exceptional timepiece presence and refinement. Harmoniously integrated rollers , for example , must be both large enough to be easily read , and small enough to be ultralight and homogeneous with box. The moon and stars twinkling laser perforated outer roller moon phase indication add to its stellar elegance . The rollers iconic , unmistakable, is the letter of Maîtres du Temps and the unmistakable DNA from the foundation of the brand.
