www.worldwatchweb.com - The latest TNT Royal Retro model by Pierre DeRoche cuts a powerful figure in its new garb featuring a rubber-moulded bezel that combines well with the polished and matt finishes of the titanium and steel case.
Six flyback seconds mechanisms placed around the dial create a truly spectacular effect, with each seconds hand returning to its initial position once the baton has been passed on, thanks to a strip-spring replacing the traditional balance-spring system. This technical solution, which facilitates adjustments and enhances shock resistance, is entirely visible thanks to the dial-free design revealing the virtuoso skill of the Vallée de Joux watchmakers.
This avant-garde attitude is also epitomised in the single central bridge single-handedly bearing 12 pivots, conveying an impressive sense of detail also reflected in the sturdy 47.5 mm titanium and steel case with 11 intricately fitted and screwed parts, composing a powerful timepiece with an architecture and design bearing the signature of Pierre Deroche.
The watch is available as a limited edition of 201 pieces equipped with an exclusive self-winding Dubois Dépraz calibre with a decorated and engraved oscillating weight.
