FABERGÉ - VISIONNAIRE DTZ
SEAN GILBERTSON, FABERGÉ CEO, SAID :
« Winning the « Ladies High Mechanical » category last year was a source of tremendous inspiration for our entire team. To win another GPHG award this year is an honour and privilege that we will not take lightly as we approach 2017, a year that marks both the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution and the 175th anniversary of the founding of Fabergé in 1842. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the jury for their recognition of the spirit that is embodied in the Fabergé Visionnaire DTZ. I thank and congratulate the entire Fabergé team, together with Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and his formidable family and posse at Agenhor, for making this award possible by embracing a spirit of mechanical and artistic adventure. »
A UNIQUE WAY TO LOOK AT YOUR SECOND TIME ZONE !
The design of the VISIONNAIRE DTZ is a mix of modernity & classical lines. This is the type of creation that many people can easily wear and at the same time, you feel that there is an eye-catching particularity...
Here, the movement is a true challenge! Why?
The hour of the second time zone is inside a tube with a magnifying glass to make sure that you’re the only one to appreciate "your" second indication.
A corrector is present at 10 o’clock to set it (the second time zone) faster therefore the crown keeps its standards fonctions.
In fact, when the center of a mechanical movement or caliber is open and nothing can come across, you’re facing a huge challenge in terms of its construction.
For instance, the numbers inside the tube must be as low as possible in order to make them readable. That’s why the rotor is on the front side of the piece, under the local time zone indicators (big grey « plate » with a series of 7 lines engraved like a « sun ») and you will barely see it.
The result is stunning! and we can’t wait to see future developments as many options are possible/open.
Congratulations, FABERGÉ !
