1770 Rose gold
This timepiece, named 1770 after the year Manufacture Royale was established, captures the very essence of the brand. On the one hand, the creative verve of a bold and contemporary design, straight from the imagination of Eric Giroud. On the other, the infinite expertise that comes with the grand tradition of Swiss watchmaking, channelled into a movement that has been developed and built entirely in-house, and whose centrepiece is one of watchmaking’s most compelling complications: the flying tourbillon. As though suspended in its carriage, offset at 7 o’clock, it leaves us free to admire the escapement, complete with a lever and an escape wheel in silicon, the ultimate innovative material to ensure a movement’s precision and performance. Entirely decorated and finished by hand, this same movement is housed inside a pink gold case, itself enlaced by two “brancards” in what is a hallmark of Manufacture Royale. The openworked dial creates multiple levels to offer glimpses of the movement in a technical and contemporary spirit.
