Hands on with the Maitres du Temps Chapter Three
For the greater part of you Maîtres du Temps is now known. Steven Holzman’s thought to assemble a couple of the absolute best watchmakers and let them make something astounding, has just shown up at Chapter Three. This time the watchmakers are no one not exactly Kari Voutilainen and Andreas Strehler !
Maîtres du Temps has a returning leitmotiv, which are the roller-markers. Kari Voutilainen and Andreas Sterhler figured out how to utilize these rollers, in spite of the fact that they are not noticeable for anybody…
The most up to date Maîtres du Temps has this ordinary and entirely conspicuous Kari Voutilainen plan that I like to such an extent. Simply because of that, I should say that the new Chapter Three is quickly my top choice of the Maîtres du Temps assortment. Although… indeed, in a couple of days I’ll show you something different I additionally like a lot.
I figure Steven Holzman did (once more) an extraordinary occupation in discovering two watchmakers who are outright bosses in what they do. The roller-markers, which were quickly obvious on Chapter One and Chapter Two, are still there, anyway they are covered up under the dial. By pushing the pusher in the crown, two boards slide away and uncover them.
When the sliding boards move away, a subsequent time region and a day/night marker are uncovered. At the 12 o’clock position is the day/night pointer for the subsequent time region, which is shown at 6 o’clock. At the contrary side of the crown is another pusher. This one is to change the subsequent time region with one hour increments.
Chapter Three is an exemplary voyagers watch for finance managers. An exemplary watch on the wrist during gatherings and with the press of a catch, you can see the time at home so you’ll never wake your dearest ones when you call them.
The second time region is shown on two rollers, one showing the hours one to six, the other showing seven to twelve. At the point when the hour changes from six to seven, the primary roller moves to the side to make space for the second roller that shows seven. As the photograph underneath shows, the day is shown by a sun and it’s protected to accept that a moon demonstrates the night.
The transparent case back with sapphire precious stone likewise shows the lovely completion of the development, that particularly like the dial, shows run of the mill Kari Voutilainen plan components. This development is type SHC03, which is a manual winding development, estimating 35.6 mm in breadth and 8.2 mm in tallness. Also, this is including the system that enacts the sliding boards of the dial!
In all out it comprises of 319 sections, of which 39 gems and when completely twisted it offers 36 hours of force save. Since the roller-markers do require some additional force, there are two origin barrels in arrangement to guarantee that additional force. The offset vibrates with 21,600 vph (or 3 Hz) and has a Straumann offset spring with Breguet overcoil (from H. Moser & Cie) and a low-mass escapement lever.
Like with the MB&F Legacy Machine 1 , Kari Voutilainen indicated the movement’s plan and finish. The completing: Côtes de Genève on the scaffolds, pèrlage on the primary plate, slanting and reflect cleaned screw heads.
Besides the shrouded second time region and day/night pointers, the dial shows a focal hour and moment hand, an off-focus little seconds hand and a date show. The dull blue dial shows a stunning Sun-beam guilloche, Clous de Paris guilloche example and roman numerals, again commonplace Kari Voutilainen esthetics. The rose gold case comprises of no under 49 components and measures 42 mm in diameter.
Personally I feel that Maîtres du Temps Chapter Three is the most wearable and most attractive of each of the three Chapters. In spite of the fact that I need to say that I’ll show another Maître du Temps soon, that likewise looks amazing!
Chapter Three retails for CHF 87,000. Given the glorious complication, plan and finish that appears to be a competitive price.
I should pressure that this is a model and along these lines not the completely completed version!
