The free dial with its case of 45 mm turns the spotlight on its tourbillon placed at 6 o’clock and on its fusée and train transmission system between 10.30 and 1.30. Secured to the mainplate by polished screws, three blackened bridges support the fus ms one rotation per minute. The central hours and minutes functions are shown on a ring swept over by luminescent black facetted hands and hour-markers. The more than 50-hour power reserve is displayed between 4 and 5 o’clock by a red-tipped hand moving between “High” and “Low” indications. Visible both on the display side and through the sapphire crystal case-back, the mainplate and bridges are coated with a anthracite colour adorned with alternating sandblasted, hand-chamfered and straight-grained nishes.
