Engineers and watchmakers from Dimier 1738 manufacture with Pininfarina designers have combined their expertise and created unprecedented in terms of originality and fascination of the technology, a mechanism that has been completely designed and manufactured by Bovet. Four large sapphire glass are mainly engaged in the surface, while the contrasting elements of titanium and gold constitute the basic contours of the structure.
Tourbillon Ottantasei body is also equipped with an intelligent system in the form of a transparent back cover, providing greater transparency and lightness, as well as the optimal size for a complete ergonomic convenience. The total weight of the metal used for manufacturing the shell is 51.66 g and 15.54 g of gold titanium. With its diameter of 44 mm and a thickness of 12 mm Tourbillon Ottantasei offers maximum comfort regardless of the shape of the wrist holder. A quick glance at the mechanism is enough to conclude that here, again, all efforts were focused on the principles of transparency and lightness.
10-day power reserve Tourbillon Ottantasei needs to make twice as many movements crown, which passes the plant for a spherical differential, developed and patented by watchmakers in Dimier 1738. Extreme miniaturization of the mechanism inspired them to file a second patent for a three-dimensional lattice gear, which dramatically reduces interference while optimizing the work of watches.
Thus, the clock can start twice as fast, to give the necessary power for 10 days. To achieve outstanding technical capabilities Tourbillon Ottantasei, engineers and watchmakers settled on a single reel with exclusive features. It can provide 240 hours of energy in an optimum consistency. The drum was skeletonized in the spirit of the general watch style.
The original flying tourbillon is not less than 104 parts. Among the innovations in the mechanism of the tourbillon carriage there is a unique bridge in the center of its axis. In addition to its well-balanced weight, and subsequently reducing the lever effect, it seems that the tourbillon carriage, moves more freely than ever before in its own space.
This original design owes its existence to the patented two-way tourbillon, which includes a balance spring and escapement, located on either side of the central fixation point. In this arrangement, increased chronometric opportunities and aesthetic qualities of watches, clearly showing the slope and the balance spring on both sides of the Caliber. This innovative design and a single point of fixation contributes to the thickness perfectly balanced mechanism in the clock itself.
Journey to the heart of a transparent mechanism leads to a surprising power reserve indicator. The drum cooperates with a wheel that rotates in one direction or another. At its center the screw axis has a screw on which a polished steel cone move vertically.
When the watch factory, the cone moves upward along the screw and activate the lever against the wall with the help of ruby runner. The second arm of this lever terminated rack that engages with the gear disposed on the axis of the indicator. Thus during factory mechanism arrow indicates accurate readings, and do not stop during work of watches.
The perfection of the whole collection presents traditional black rubber strap with elegant design and a traditional buckle, constructed of suitable housing material. There will be individual number of each mechanism on the platinum side. Collectors can choose any of three options of the case: 18K rose gold, titanium grade 5 titanium or coated with black DLC.
