Launched in 2007, the present Prestige HM is the first flagship model of the individual watchmaker Romain Gauthier. Immediately recognizable is its extraordinary off-centred dial, offering a grey sunburst finish, enhanced by a fine guilloche section contrasting in absolute perfection. The present watch aims to bring a harmonious balance to the wrist, with the crown placed on the case back as a setting wheel, completing an exceptionally symmetrical presentation which is very aesthetically pleasing.
