The beating heart of this horological masterpiece is its in-house movement, adorned with 19 meticulously selected rubies. These precious jewels, each serving as a pivot point, reduce friction within the movement, ensuring not only longevity but also impeccable accuracy.

Ideal for globetrotters and connoisseurs of precision, this complication allows wearers to track two distinct time zones concurrently.

Adding an element of celestial allure, the watch features a sun and moon phase display. This exquisite complication accurately portrays the waxing and waning of the moon and the changing face of the sun. Beyond its functionality, this feature is an artistic representation of the celestial dance, enhancing the watch's overall appeal.
