The watch is powered by the caliber T 27 PS, composed of 336 individual parts and incorporates two of the most coveted complications, the minute repeater and the tourbillon. The unparalleled resonance and exquisite tone of this timepiece's minute repeating chime undoubtedly appeal to the most discerning collector. Furthermore, the gravity-defying tourbillon admired through the sapphire display back, allows the watch to achieve chronometer-like accuracy.
