After distinguishing itself in the 2011 Chronométrie international timing competition by winning third place in the Tourbillon category, the “alternative motoriste” (the Swiss watch industry word for movement maker) from the Neuchâtel mountains is enriching its range and confirming its expertise in the field of fundamental horology. In 2003, the company presented its first mechanical “construction”: the TT651 additional module, with a large date at 12 o’clock and a dual-time display at 6 o’clock.
Nine years later, it is offering a new take on its leading module, designed to be interpreted in many different ways. The product collection available to all watch brands continues to highlight the large date function, along with the novel feature of a dual-time indication coupled with a large day/night disc. Its modular nature enables each customer to express its creativity according to its DNA and its own aesthetic codes.
PERSONALISATION TO MEET
THE NEED FOR DIFFERENTIATION
This disc, placed along the axis of the dual-time hands, provides a 10 mm-diameter transfer surface area that gives the brand designers greater freedom to interpret it according to their individual inspiration. The disc may also be left partially visible in various places (1) or revealed in its entirety (3).
A PROGRESSIVE CONCEPT
Another essential characteristic of this dual-time function is its progressive and adjustable nature. It may thus be used on its own, without a pointer, by careful transferring of the disc, or by combining the disc with the hour hand alone, or else with both hour and minute hands. But that’s not all, since there is also the possibility of superimposing two discs, with no hand. In such instances, the colour appears through the cut-out numerals of the upper disc (4).
