Movement concept featuring two escapements that influence and stabilize each other, two completely independent time zones, the crown at 12 o’clock winds both the movement and sets the hours and minutes of each dial. Reset of both small seconds to zero with the push piece at 4 o’clock.
The side and top crowns are engine-turned in "Cordes de Marseille" texturing; the crown at 12 o'clock winds both movements, independently setting the hours and minutes of each twin subsidiary dials, while the crown at 4 o'clock synchronizes both seconds hands.
This caliber 1499-2 manual movement has fausses cotes decoration, shock absorbers, twin straight-line lever escapements, twin beryllium 4-arm balances with 4 adjustable timing weights, and self-compensating free-sprung balance springs, with both independent trains on a single plate. It oscillates at 21,600 vibrations per hour; one escapement is fixed to a small platform that pivots around the second wheel with a rack-and-pinion mechanism that adjusts the distance between the two balances in order to find the most efficient synchronized position. The bridges and plates are 18K rose gold, and the resonating engine keeps both movements synchronized.
18K gold movement, adjusted in 6 positions.
The case, dial, and movement are all signed.
