At the heart of the watch beats the brands proprietary, hand-wound mechanical movement. It contains Spiral Zerodur hairspring, which needs zero regulation.

Set with 17 rubies, the movement is composed of 177 individual parts and features the dimensions of 36,8 mm x 6,12 mm: the diameter and thickness are indicated respectively. This model movement is fitted with a double barrel, offering a 52-hour power reserve.

The anchor and anchor wheel are produced from carbon and glass, with no pallets. The brass Ebauches feature a high-tech ADLC coating. The oscillating weight is manufactured from ADLC-treated tungsten carbide. The balance frequency constitutes 28,800 vibrations per hour.
