Following the success of the Vulcania watch, HD3 Complication is proud to unveil its new one-of-a-kind Black Pearl watch that boasts the brand’s bi-axial tourbillon complication.
Fabrice Gonet, the designer of the new adventurous watch, has been inspired for the watch creation by the exciting era of pirates and buccaneers. The timepiece demonstrates the retro-futuristic steampunk style characteristic of Vulcania.
The case of the Black Pearl watch is immediately associated with the world of pirates: you will notice a hatch featured on the 9 o'clock side of the case. It reminds a cannon hatch of a naval man o'war from former times. You can open it to get a panoramic view of the tourbillon from the side. It also shows a special plate for engraving the name of the watch’s owner.
The hatch is embellished with a small plate in PVD-coated titanium demonstrating the signature skull-and-crossbones flag of the pirate Jack Rackham.
The dial of the watch features blood-red luminova-coated numerals. The dial is shielded by an anti-reflection sapphire glass.
The case back of the Black Pearl watch is produced from sapphire glass and engraved with a compass rose designed specifically for the timepiece.
The crown design will make you think of a frigate's tiller.
The heart of the HD3 Complication watch is the brand’s bi-axial tourbillon presenting a unique display elaborated by Fabrice Gonet. To pay tribute to the early days of naval exploration, the hours are presented on a wheel, the minutes on a disk and the power reserve indicator has acquired the form of a sextant.
The exclusive HD3 Complication Black Pearl watch will be available in a limited series of just 11 pieces.
The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant. The movement, with its balance wheel making 21,600 alternations per hour, provides an 80-hour power reserve.
The watch is secured to the wrist on a rubber or black alligator leather strap, or a black vintage leather with red stitching strap.
