Maitres du Temps Unveils Sophisticated Chapter One Round

May 03, 2010
Maitres du Temps is proud to unveil its latest horological marvel - Chapter One Round. The watch boasts an architecturally-inspired round-shaped case that accommodates a groundbreaking combination of complications.

The Chapter One Round watch was born out of a successful collaboration of most highly respected master watchmakers - Christophe Claret and Peter Speake-Marin.

The timepiece strikes imagination by its one-of-a-kind combination of complications: mono-pusher chronograph, tourbillon, retrograde date, retrograde GMT, and two rolling bars for showing the day of the week and phase of the moon.

The Chapter One Round watch impresses by the smart interplay of the multi-level concentric circles of the case and dial, yet maintaining supreme legibility of its layout and its refined and functional design.

The remarkably legible dial demonstrates central coaxial hours, minutes, and 60-second counter for the chronograph. Your glance will be caught by the tourbillon and day of the week roller found at 6 oclock. The retrograde GMT function is presented at 9 oclock, while the 60-minute chronograph counter and precision moon phase roller are positioned at 12 oclock. Finally, the retrograde date function is featured at 3 oclock.

For most comfortable adjusting of the calendar indications, Chapter One Round incorporates stylish ergonomic correctors with a slide-to-unlock feature.

The sophisticated case construction of the new Maitres du Temps watch is built from 96 individual elements. The case is sculptured in 18K red gold and coupled with a hand-sewn alligator strap fitted with an 18K red-gold deployant buckle.

The central body and two lugs of the case demonstrate hand-polished and brushed-satin finishes reflecting meticulous exactitude. It should be mentioned that the case development alone took its creators a whole year of research and development.

The heart of the Chapter One Round watch is Caliber SHC02, a manual-wind mechanical movement incorporating 558 components. The 58-jewel movement, with the balance frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, gives an advantage of 60 hours of the power-reserve. The sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating case-back allows to admire the complicated nature and beauty of the movement.

The Maitres du Temps Chapter One Round watch will be limited to just 11 pieces.
