Spectacular mechanics and high-performance materials
are the venue for this new showcasing of the now legendary Quatuor movement.
The impressive technology of four sprung-balances combined with five
differentials – the power it takes to drive the movement at a frequency of
115,200 vibrations per hour – has found its match in a cutting-edge material,
and highly corrosion-resistant, cobalt chrome is an alloy obtained through
Micro-Melt technology, a total exclusivity that represents just 0.1% of
metallurgy worldwide, encountered primarily in aeronautics and astronomy. This
astounding tour de force shows off the movement of this Excalibur which, as
ever, has been granted the prestigious Poinçon de Genève.
