Get Stunned by Manufacture Royale Opera Time-Piece

Dec 01, 2010
Any watch lover will surely be stunned by the Opera Time-Piece created by Manufacture Royale.

The zest of the timepiece is its patented case that opens up the same way as the bellows of an accordion. This one-of-a-kind case construction is used as a resonance cage/chamber for the improved sounding of the minute repeater.

The 50mm-wide case is sculptured in 18k rose and gray gold. The 60-piece case construction incorporates three sapphire crystals and a movable transparent case-back. The hour and minutes hands are presented in hand-polished 18k rose gold.

The heart of the remarkable Opera Time-Piece is a brand-new manual-winding movement that boasts the tourbillon and minute repeater complications. Operating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, the 29-ruby movement has been constructed from 319 parts. The hand-finished mechanism incorporates plates and bridges crafted from brass and embellished with sunray brushing and polished angles. It gives an advantage of 108 hours of power reserve.

The Manufacture Royale Opera Time-Piece is secured to the wrist on a hand-sewn Mississippi alligator leather strap.

No doubt, aimed at passionate watch collectors, the unique minute repeater timepiece will be limited to just 12 piece. The masterpiece of watchmaking is promised to be delivered in a veneered wooden box that looks like a reproduction of the Bastille Opera House in Paris. Nobody will be surprised by the price - 1, 200 000 US dollars.
