STORY

The Palatial Flying Tourbillion Minute Repeater unveils its mechanical magic through a translucent blue, red or green mineral crystal. The entire minute repeater mechanism, which is usually hidden away from view under the dial, is visible here -press the slide which arms and activates the repeater, and one will hear the hours, quarter hours, and minutes rung on two cathedral gongs. All the charm of an haute horlogerie timepiece and musical instruments are combined to create an incomparable sophisticated time-keeping choreography of a complex system of racks, snails, and levers that bring to life the song of time.

FLYING TOURBILLON

Whereas the tourbillon was originally invented to be a single-axis, rotating cage secured from above as well as below to carry the regulating organ of a mechanical pocket watch for improved timekeeping performance, the Palatial Flying Tourbillon Minute Repeater presents this 224-year-old invention in a yet more spectacular way.

The one-minute flying tourbillon of this Palatial model features a delicately decorated cage that encapsulates the balance wheel, hairspring, escape wheel and a number of other crucially important components. This openworked cage not only features elaborate, handcrafted decorations, but is only secured from underneath, allowing for an unobstructed and full view at the ultimate refinement of its detailing and operation. It is a constellation of superbly finished components that, when assembled and fine-tuned expertly, allows the 194-component JCBM01 caliber to keep accurate time throughout its exceptionally long, 100-hour power reserve.

CASE & CRYSTAL

The case of the Palatial Flying Tourbillon Minute Repeater measures 43 millimeters in diameter and just 12.70 millimeters thick between the top of its anti-reflective sapphire crystal and the lowest point of its case. Its case is crafted from 18K Rose Gold or Grade 5 Titanium and is finished with a combination of circular satinated, polished gadroon and high polished surface treatments, all executed to the highest possible standard.

DIAL & HANDS

The Palatial Flying Tourbillon Minute Repeater is further characterized by the vivid colors and mysterious translucency of its dials. Available with semi-transparent blue, red or green mineral crystal dials, it curiously reveals the exceptionally finished dial-side components of its JCBM01 caliber, allowing for a closer look and appreciation of their functioning and execution. Hours and minutes are indicated by elaborately skeletonized hands.

MINUTE REPEATER

The Minute Repeater is widely and historically referenced among the most challenging complications ever conceived in fine watchmaking. As a chiming mechanism, on demand of its owner, the minute repeater of the Palatial begins to strike the hours, quarters and minutes with its three hammers and gongs, making for a brilliantly refined, musical interpretation of time.
