Head_Hebdomas_mobile

At the request of a longtime client living in Hamburg, we created this trilogy powered by Hebdomas 8-day movements. In their day, Hebdomas movements were manufactured just about only with skeletonization in order to free the view of the balance. These stainless steel cases were created as a custom design especially for this little collection.

180 CM = 8 DAYS

The three movements of our Hamburg client were finished using three different decoration methods, whereby each movement received a special element put in the spotlight: the high art of diamond setting; a handguilloche dial with characteristic Breguet frosted finish; and a skeletonized dial to perfectly harmonize with the skeletonized Hebdomas movement. The balance, which oscillates 3,456,000 times in an eight-day period, is visible from the front of these movements. The unusually thick case was specially created to house the 180-centimeter-long mainspring. This is a special commission that doesn’t exist in any other form.
