Acknowledged as an extremely complicated watch, the Sky Moon Tourbillon is a rare collector’s piece that features approximately 694 handmade parts.
The first double-faced wristwatch to ever be created, the timepiece features a perpetual calendar on one side and a presentation of the nocturnal sky on the other with separate displays of moon orbit, phases and star movement.
With a hand-stitched leather strap and a buckle, front dial and moon symbols all in gold, the face is encased in 18 karat rose gold and measures 42.8 millimetres in diameter and 16.25 millimetres in height.
Sapphire crystals also adorn the watch, indicating the motion of the moon phases and sky chart. A calendar indicates hours, quarter-hours and minutes with perceptible gongs.
