Catalogue Note

The influence of Breguet is very clearly seen in the dial configuration of this watch.  Another interesting element to note is that the tourbillon carriage in this watch is also likely to have been manufactured by the celebrated watchmaker Richard Daners, who also made unique and important commissions for Gubelin, and who in 1997 received the prestigious Prix Gaïa, only presented to those who have advanced horology and its importance throughout their work.

This watch, numbered 000 is the very first of its kind. It was originally gifted to a member of Engel's family.
