The brand is now proud to present this magnificent model equipped with a minute repeater and flying tourbillon and housed in a case designed to recall the style of the fob-watch. This little horological masterpiece is adorned with an opaline skeleton dial set with 72 diamonds and 12 sapphires, through which the hammers, gongs and flying tourbillon can be admired on the bridge side.
