Features & Functionality

The hand-painted globe performs one anti-clockwise rotation every 24 hours. At the base of the globe, a graduated scale displays the hour by means of a three-dimensional polished titanium hand, situated between the tourbillon and the globe.

 

The earth is represented by a hemisphere on the Récital 22, the surface of which is adorned with an engraved and hand-painted map luminescent substances into the miniature painting, on which the oceans, mountains, deserts, and forests are executed in painstaking detail.

The moon is represented by a sphere that makes a complete orbit once every 29.53 days exactly, which corresponds to the synodic period of our natural satellite. The high-precision mechanism that powers the moon and moon phase display, also visible on the Earth’s concentric ring, means that it will register a discrepancy of just one day every 122 years.

The collector’s pleasure continues while exploring the back of the case of the timepiece to discover a Retrograde sapphire date that shares its display on the dial of the timepiece, a perpetual calendar, and a single-window that displays the hour only.

 

A single barrel supplies the 709 components of this complex caliber while providing a power reserve of over nine days.
