TITANIUM AUTOMATIC TOURBILLON
We created a Tourbillon in titanium which is the best possible and most durable material for watches. We also wanted to keep it at an affordable price point. We believe we were able to achieve our goals without sacrificing design, quality, and wearability. Our desire was to create a watch that not only celebrated the craftsmanship, but also the authentic individual artistic expression of the wearer.
- Movement: Self winding automatic Tourbillon movement caliber #3C40E.
- Case: Grade 2 Titanium case with a hand applied Cerakote finish in the United States.
- Functions: Tourbillon, date, night/day indicator, 24 hour GMT indicator.
- Crystal: Double coated anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
- Water Resistance: 660 Feet / 200 Meters / 20 Atmospheres
- Assembly: Final watch assembly and testing by certified watchmakers in the USA.
WHY NOT SWISS MADE?
It would have been easy to stamp our watches “Swiss Made.” As many Swiss manufacturers have been doing lately, we could have made the movement, case, and strap outside of Switzerland. And like some of our competitors, we could have manufactured and assembled the dials and hands with the other components in Switzerland and call it “Swiss Made.” It’s the dirty little secret the Swiss watch industry wants to hide. This method of manufacturing is obviously not transparent. In the words of the greatest living watchmaker, Philippe Dufour, “The “too comfortable” Swiss watch industry are no longer the clear winners of watches. [Dufour] gives considerable weight to the work done by the Germans, Japanese, and even Chinese.” Like Dufour, we strongly believe talent is global and we aimed to break free from the geographic stereotypes. Other than significantly increasing the cost of the watches, we didn’t see any value added to this project using the label “Swiss Made.”
TITANIUM GRADE 2 CASE
To further personalize the watch for its wearer, we’re offering Cerakote ceramic coating. This hand finished process is applied individually to each case. Cerakote combines a ceramic base and a polymer to create a coating that allows us to achieve the dynamic colors on our Titanium cases. All of our Cerakoting is done in the United States. Since each case is hand applied and hand finished, no two watches will be exactly the same. Thereby making each Cerakoted Tourbillon a piece unique. This laborious process takes approximately 3 to 4 weeks to complete and will only be available in limited quantities.
