Its manufacture movement is crafted in 18-carat rose gold, engraved with the "Côtes du Jura". Functions: Hour, minute, seconds in the tourbillon carriage at 3 o’clock, synchronized seconds in the tourbillon carriage at 9 o’clock, moon phase at 6 o’clock, silver dial with Superluminova numerals and hour markers, sapphire crystals front and back, 58-hour power reserve, two crowns: time setting and winding, alligator leather strap.
