7-Day Tourbillon with Reversed Hand-Fitting
Once again this tourbillon watch is the fruit of an exclusive development. The Ottanta Due follows the same aesthetic blueprint as its two predecessors. The design of the bow, two flat bezels, the shape of the hands and its rubber strap are distinctive features of this elegant and sporty collection. For the third time, watchmakers at the DIMIER manufactory have developed the movement’s potential for expression by deploying multiplying combinations of surface finish and coloration.
All comparisons with its predecessors stop here however. Indeed this second tourbillon watch in the collection features every innovation developed by the master watchmakers of DIMIER 1738, Manufacture de Haute Horlogerie Artisanale. The tourbillon carriage has been extended to a diameter of 13.50mm and is located at 6 o’clock, its revolutions rated to sixty seconds so that it can carry the seconds-hand, completing the indications of hours, minutes and seven-day power reserve on this first face of the timepiece. Because, naturally, the Ottanta Due features the AMADEO® case which allows the tourbillon watch to be converted into a table clock, a pocket watch or a reversible wristwatch without the need for any tools whatsoever.
This versatility means that the watch can be worn with either face displayed, since the movement also incorporates the now famous reversed hand-fitting showing the time on an additional offset dial, leaving deserved space for the remarkable mechanical architecture of this third collaboration.
