Established by the philosopher and inventor Voltaire in 1770, and reawakened in 2010, Manufacture Royale is one of the most prestigious marques in the watchmaking landscape today. Adhering the spirit of its creator, the company create masterpieces characterised by innovation and exceptionally high quality. Demonstrating the company’s flair for technically complex micro-mechanics, and their panache for superb styling The Micromegas Tourbillon Micro Rotor in rose gold from the brand’s Bespoke Creation portfolio is an exclusive unique piece which is defined by its distinctive contemporary yet sophisticated aesthetic.
The watch is encased in a resplendent rose gold housing which has been meticulously finished to enhance its profile. Measuring 45mm in diameter, and with a height of 11.8mm, it tapers gently towards the wrist and the flowing lugs curve wonderfully ensuring an ergonomic experience. Deeply carved notches on the bezel, which serve as markers for the hours, elevate the personality of the casing, giving it a robust, modernistic aspect.
Entirely openworked, the dial of the watch has been reduced to its essentia in order to showcase the flying tourbillon at the six o’clock location. Meticulously crafted, its movement is immediately compelling, and it offers a fascinating illusion as it performs its constant ballet, appearing to float within the entirely transparent lower dial sector. With loupe-worthy attention to detail, the bridge of the cage has been hand decorated with anglage and circular finishing techniques, after which it is blued so that it perfectly adheres to the styling codes of the model. With similar fastidiousness, the openworked hour and minutes hands have the duality of satin and brushed décor and at their centre, each has been sandblasted with SuperlumiNova. Finishing this exceptional dial arrangement, an openworked blued flange ring with nanodeco treatment is overlaid upon a plate of intricate Perlage decoration, while a screwed-on plate featuring the Manufacture Royale branding offers equipoise to the layout of the façade.
The Haute Horlogerie finishing continues on the rear side of the in-house MR11 movement, which can be fully appreciated through the sapphire crystal case back. Featuring a freely rotating semi-circular tungsten micro rotor, the calibre beats at 21’600vph and boasts a power reserve of at least 72 hours when fully wound.
A timepiece which enjoys exclusive unique piece status, the Manufacture Royale Micromegas Automatic Tourbillon comes presented on a hand-sewn deep blue alligator leather strap secured to the wrist by a folding clasp.
