The Ulysse Anchor tourbillon took 8 years of R & D to create a landmark complication. Although first introduced at Basel world 2014 as a prototype, we now see the refinements attained within a year and now as close to perfection as one can get.
The Ulysse Anchor escapement is made 100% from Silicum which for those not in the know, is a material which is extremely light, not affected by magnetism and requires no lubrication which is ideal for the regulation part of a mechanical time piece. We now have the ideal scenario of this remarkable achievement encased in a 60-seconds tourbillon, whose cage comprises 35 components but weighs no more than 0.4 grams and believe it has a 7 days power reserve to boot (perfection maybe)
Reserve this now if you can, as this will certainly make the collectors list. They will be limited to 18 pieces in Rose Gold and 18 pieces in White Gold
