The AkriviA tourbillon for 2016 builds upon the foundations and standards laid out by Rexhep Rexhepi for his vision of haute horlogerie in a modern world.
The quality of his mechanical and visual design, with its specific attention to detail, guarantees perfection in the highest traditions of Geneva’s famed watchmaking history, the brand claims.
Compared to previous models, the tourbillon opening mounted at 6 o’clock has been slightly enlarged and is framed in highly polished steel. The barrette styled tourbillon bridge’s open worked, filigreed arch is testament to the precision and surety of the watchmaker’s hand and eye, AkriviA says.
The mirrored aspect in Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir’s name refers to a new ‘first’ for the brand : each numeral has been hand finished and then given a black polish treatment followed by hand bluing, designed to complement the dial’s aesthetics and workmanship. Using special hand executed finishes, the dial is further complemented by a two tone effect on its surface, providing what the brand says is the perfect backdrop to the mirrored polished numerals and movement parts.
The Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir is available in steel with two-tone gray dial, platinum, 18ct red gold, titanium grade five.
