This timepiece, named 1770 after the year Manufacture Royale was established, captures the very essence of the brand. On the one hand, it has the creative verve of a bold and contemporary design, straight from the imagination of renowned designer Eric Giroud.

On the other, the expertise that comes with the grand tradition of Swiss watchmaking, channelled into a movement that has been developed and built entirely inhouse, and whose centrepiece is one of watchmaking’s most compelling complications: the flying tourbillon. As though suspended in its carriage, offset at 7 o’clock, it leaves us free to admire the escapement, complete with a lever and an escape wheel in silicon, the ultimate innovative material to ensure a movement’s precision and performance.

Entirely decorated and finished by hand, this same movement is housed inside a pink gold case, itself bracketed by two ‘brancards’, the hallmark of Manufacture Royale. The openworked dial creates multiple levels to offer glimpses of the movement in a technical and contemporary spirit.

Mechanical hand-wound, MR03 calibre, flying tourbillon with silicon escape wheel and lever, flat balance spring, screwed balance, chamfered, circular-grained, straight-grained and mirror- polished bridges and plate, all by hand, côtes de Genève, 208 parts, 19 jewels, 21,600 vph, 108-hour power reserve.
