Louis-Elysée Piguet (LEP) Grande Complication
Paul Gerber : Grande Complication de Louis-Elysée Piguet (LEP)
In 1992, Franck Muller added a perpetual calendar to
the LEP movement. The watch was presented at that year's Baselworld and sold to
a collector. The new owner then asked Paul Gerber to add a small flying
tourbillon which he did in 1995, incorporating the original balance and spring.
In 2013, at the same collector's behest, Paul Gerber completed the movement
with a split-seconds flyback Chronograph, jumping minutes, and power-reserve
indicators for the movement and the striking mechanism, thus earning the watch
its place in the Guinness Book of Records.
