The Swiss watch Manufacture has chosen a U.S. venue, Miami Watches & Wonders 2019 to present this exceptional timepiece for the very first time. Based on the “Earth to Sky” theme, this complication model is named after the most brilliant of astronomical entities, the quasar.

The 45 mm diameter Quasar case is entirely made of sapphire crystal. A chimney-style glass covers the movement bridges like a telluric dome. Its all-of-a-piece baseband features curving sides and angular lugs.
Caliber GP9400-1035 is a modified version of Caliber 9400, from which the manipulate has been removed. Almost as if this had created a vacuum, the movement finds itself in an almost weightless state.
The bridges visually contribute to Quasar’s overall transparency effect. They are made of titanium, sandblasted and then blackened by a PVD treatment.
