Inspiration

Overview 

Following the outstanding chronometric results achieved by the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph, the Tourbillon Hour Minute uses a similar manually-wound base movement. A single barrel affords 100 hours of full autonomy, and the watch displays hours, minutes and seconds powered by the 60-second rotating tourbillon. 

The matte-polished decoration of the movement and dial is obtained thanks to a special hand-finishing technique. A mixture of crushed rock and oil is spread over a perfectly flat sheet of glass or marble and rubbed in a circular motion against the mixture until a perfectly homogeneous pattern is achieved. It is a time-consuming process, that demands rigorous concentration to obtain a result worthy of AkriviA’s requirements.

Inspiration 

In his approach as an inventor and master watchmaker, Rexhep is constantly striving to improve his creations by applying the most appropriate techniques within the gamut of fine watchmaking. The Tourbillon Hour Minute offers a tribute to traditional dial realization processes that are rarely seen in today’s watch industry.
