It is equipped with a minute repeater mechanism, which incorporates a miniaturized automaton.
The timepiece movement presents audibly the hours, quarters and minutes. The timepiece breathes life into the 16th century Venetian dice player, exposed on this model’s dial. The automaton operates absolutely independently from the minute repeater mechanism. It implies that the player can be put into motion when the minute repeater is striking, or on demand.
Encouraged by the Cardsharps, an outstanding painting by the Italian painter Caravaggio, the dice player throws the dice and lifts two leather goblets for the viewer to see what has been thrown.
This spectacular model accommodates the manual winding DR 7300 calibre movement, set with 49 rubies. The movement runs at 18,000 vibrations per hour. It is fitted with a flat balance-spring, a lever escapement and a cathedral gong. Embellished with the Cotes de Geneve pattern, the movement of the watch offers a 48-hour power reserve.
This remarkable timepiece is available with an 18K white gold case, featuring the dimensions of 46 mm x 43 mm. The case frames a gold, hand- painted dial, which represents a true piece of art.
