The stunning movement on the present watch is the “Manufacture Piaget 608P hand wound tourbillon relatif”.
The mainplate is circular grained by hand, as well as the beveled carriage. Blued screws impart a regal hue with the etiquette of befitting a horological aristocrat. The bridges are circular grained, drawn and bevelled by hand as well. They feature a circular Côtes de Genève motif.
Twin barrels help provide an impressive power reserve of 80 hours. This is remarkable when you consider the energy requirement necessary to drive the tourbillon carriage. The frugal consumption of energy is partly due to the light weight of the titanium carriage. The watch is furthermore offered in excellent overall condition.
