all of you following the coverage of the SIHH 2003 show
certainly noticed the most impressive GP Tourbillon Magistral
which was presented in Geneva as a prototype.
I´m proud and happy to shed a little more light on this new marvel:
The Vintage 1945 XXL is equipped with a manual wind tourbillon movement. Indications are a retrograde date, a power reserve and a "sonnerie en passant", a hour striker which is a minute repetition as well.
The Tourbillon Magistral will be available in yellow, red or white gold as well as platinum.
Some further specs:
- power reserve 110 hours (!!!)
- sapphire crystal both for front and back
- water resistant up to 30 m
- case measurements 36 x 37 mm
And here we go:
This watch is scheduled to be available in november 2003; as usual, limited capacities and classic "atelier" methods of manufacturing (one watchmaker assembles one complete watch, by hand of course) will lead to limited output.
Therefore, only few Tourbillon Magistral will leave the ateliers in La Chaux-De-Fonds each year with a significant time to wait until delivery.
Hope you enjoy this exclusive preview (and remember, you´ve seen it on ThePuristS.com first
