A.FAVRE & FILS, PHOENIX 10.1, « QUANTIEME A GRAND AFFICHAGE ROTATIF », LIMITED EDITION, 18K WHITE GOLD
ICONEEK price: SOLD
Iconeek is proud to introduce here a mint and full-set, limited edition, unusual, 18K white gold mechanical wristwatch with special large date indication, sweep center seconds and power reserve indication.
« The Quantième à Grand Affichage Rotatif is an original and patented big date development. The purpose of this system is to optimize the number of components, therefore increasing reliability, by reducing the number of moving parts to the minimum: only two in this case ».
The watch is powered by an in-house, manual winding, caliber DB 1334/1 HENRY (a tribute to Henry A. Favre, 8th generation of the Favre watchmakers) that combines the best technology available with traditional and ancestral watchmaking arts in terms of finishing and decoration: the shape of bridges (rounded “apple” heads), the double click winding mechanism with wolf teeth ratchet-wheel, screwed-in jewel settings, end-stone plates, swan neck index-regulator and a fixed balance-spring stud. This movement is also set with parallel twin barrels with direct depth that offers up to 84 hours of power reserve. A power reserve indicator is visible through the sapphire case-back. « Each movement undergoes a fine watchmaking finishing: chamfering, drawing, circular graining, sinks entirely done by hand, and a -Rayons de la Gloire- (Rays of Glory) machine finish on bridges »
Full-set, first owner, fresh to the market, the present watch is not only a great daily watch but also an amazing unusual proposition for any watch lovers looking for something unique. The present watch is numbered 19 on a limited edition of only 24 pieces, made for the CPH Cercle de la Premiere Heure.
