Week starter: One&Two Openworked Tourbillon from Speake-Marin
1 min read
Building on the success of the “One&Two” Openworked collection, Speake-Marin now extends its Openworked range with a new complication. The watchmaker unveiled a 60 seconds Flying Tourbillon at this year’s Watches & Wonders.
The new SMA05 Calibre is part of the SMA proprietary movement family and follows the “Openworked collection” construction approach with a strong element at 1:30: the flying tourbillon. By displaying a tourbillon cage at 1:30, Speake-Marin’s objective is to break-away from the traditional watchmaking codes. Currently, Speake-Marin is the only watchmaker who positions its tourbillon there. It is a real constraint in terms of movement development, as the tourbillon cage at 1:30 has to go through the time setting module. It is even more complicated than a small second, because the tourbillon cage requires more space in length and depth.
In addition, the tourbillon cage is covered by the Speake-Marin rotor shape in black. The main plate has a microblasted black finish which brings depth to the dial. The regulating organ is especially accurate, with a precision of +/- 4 second per day.
Last but not least, the SMA05 Calibre displays a power reserve indicator at 7:30 (72 hours). It creates a visual balance between the barrel, the oscillating mass, the tourbillon and the power reserve.
Revealing strong watch architecture, the One&Two Openworked Tourbillon anchors the Speake-Marin contemporary style to create “Belle Horlogerie” for those who want to wear something unique on their wrist. Both contemporary with the dial and classic with the case, this timepiece is for the gentlemen watch connoisseurs.
