First launched in 2009, Horological Machine No.3 was far outside existing timekeeping references and marked the beginning of an iconic series.
The wearer can fully appreciate the art and craft that makes up HM3 and draws one’s gaze inside the highly complex machine; a machine comprising more than 300 fine-finished, high-precision components. The movement of HM3 has been literally turned upside down to allow for an uninterrupted panorama of the solid gold winding rotor’s graceful arcs and the high-speed oscillations of the balance wheel. Turning the watch over reveals the technical secret behind its inverted movement: two large ceramic bearings efficiently transmit power up to the cones and date wheel.
