Movement

Based on an historical Patek Philippe caliber from 1889 that was sold to Tiffany New York in 1890, this mechanical split-seconds chronograph movement with manual winding features 26 jewels and a compensation screw balance with a blued Breguet hairspring beating at 18,000 semi-oscillations per hour.

 

The movement was completely disassembled and restored as well as technically modified to encompass a regulator display. The base plate was hand-skeletonized before being guilloché and coated with blue platinum. The three-quarter plate was also hand-skeletonized and modified to change shape and guilloché, coated with rhodium and rose gold. Every single bridge was skeletonized so to change its shape, guilloché and rhodium-plated. The hand-engraved balance cock was rhodium- and rose gold-plated. The wheels are guilloché and all steel screws are flame-blued.
