Peter Speake-Marin makes no Secret of his particular affection for the tourbillon, which he describes as one of the things he "most likes" in watchmaking. The brand's many renditions of the tourbillon should therefore come as no surprise. In this version, the tourbillon stands out against a red gold dial that has been engraved with patterns inspired by the prehistoric bronze drums of the ancient Dong Son people of Vietnam. Geometric motifs and scenes from daily life adorn the dial, which is surrounded by a halo of baguette diamonds. Every one of these designs is produced in stunning detail thanks to the spectacular precision of an innovative etching process. Turning over the red gold Piccadilly case reveals the movement with its meticulous classic finishing, as well as the platinum micro-rotor whose sober appearance contrasts with the wealth of decoration on the dial. This is truly a work of art for the wrist and a unique piece in a series of eight tourbillon watches on the theme of Dong Son drums.
