Inspiration

Overview 

With a stylish architectural construction, two finely sculpted bridges progressively rise on either side of the dial. The first holds the balance wheel above the setting mechanism, whilst the second bridge harmoniously positions the sub-dial at a different height. These raised elements create an impression of lightness, whilst the design – distilled down to its essential elements – allows for an uninhibited view of the oscillating balance wheel and escapement.

The new MR07 caliber is the brand’s seventh in-house movement and includes a central hour-and-minute display linked to an off-center secondary time-zone display – directly adjustable via the crown. Positioned at 5 o'clock, the sub-dial of the second time zone contrasts with the sunray detailing of the main dial through a quilted pattern and fine polished rim. Open-worked hands indicating the reference time and full hands on the second time zone ensure optimal legibility.



Inspiration

"Man is free at the instant he wants to be", wrote Voltaire, the eighteenth-century philosopher who inspired the Manufacture Royale brand. The 1770 Haute Voltige is freed from the constraint of one single time and instils a taste for adventure and the freedom to travel by offering a choice of two time zones. 

In this ethereal composition, founders Alexis and David Gouten have raised the balance wheel and counter on the second time zone above the dial, like a stunt-flying demonstration. The 45-mm case with its gentle lines is designed to be a practical instrument for everyday use, and sits comfortably on the wrist.
