Tourbillon Manufacture Silicium

Frédérique Constant Genève is establishing itself as one of Switzerland’s leading watch brands with this creation of a tourbillon with a silicon escape-wheel and, for the first time, an amplitude of over 300 degrees between its vertical and horizontal positions. Coupled with the rapid oscillation, this gives the watch an unusually high level of precision, while the silicon guarantees optimum protection. It is offered in a limited individually-numbered edition of 188. With its technical complexity - for example, the meticulous attention paid to every detail - this timepiece will be around for years to come.
