Colosso

Housed in an extraordinarily complicated case, this hand-wound, mechanical calibre symbolises both present and future. At its heart, a precious minute-repeater mechanism, set in motion by a trigger located on the left side of the case middle, transforms the non-material hours, quarters and minutes on demand into a crystal-clear sound by means of two cathedral gongs. This delicate interplay between cams and wheels, laid bare by the subtle effect of the transparency, reveals technical solutions not commonly seen, and of a rare subtlety. Enthusiasts of pure mechanics will be fascinated by the technical solutions applied and will remember this reference as an example of the work of miniaturisation mastered to perfection. They will appreciate the two arbors with Archimedean screws fitted with microscopic dials, which, once set in rotation thanks to the conical pinions, cause two arrows to rise or fall, indicating the 24 hours of a selected second time zone, whose corresponding reference city then appears in a discreet window.
