AN EXTREMELY RARE AND UNIQUE OVERSIZED SINGLE-PUSHER PLANETARY-GEAR CHRONOGRAPH WITH STRIKING SYSTEM AND TOURBILLON WRISTWATCH WITH TWO ROLLING BELT INDICATORS.... The most fundamental aspect of this watch is the way it keeps time via a belt drive system. As you can see in the pictures, there are two rubber belts with embossed numbers that run vertically on either side of the case one tells the hours, the other tells the minutes..
Crown fitted with an Clutch device at the end of the winding process, which serves to preserve the movement from excessive tension. Dial composed of three tinted sapphire crystals: the first serves as a bridge for the chronograph counters and is engraved with the name Christophe Claret; the second acts as a central bridge and carries the Swiss Made engraving; while the third is the tourbillon bridge which is plated with the small seconds markings. Small crystals, on either side of the case, provide a view into the movement...A large opening on the left side allows a view of the pulleys that drive the hour belt. On the right side, a smaller opening between the pusher and the crown offers the same view. CC manually wound mechanical lever movement.. 21,600 vph , 60-hour power reserve..
Twin barrels placed in parallel, supplied by two barrels whose ratchet wheels are placed in parallel at the centre of the movement. Tourbillon: - Swiss lever escapement - Balance oscillation - Tourbillon rotation frequency: 1 revolution/minute. The tourbillon rests in the lower part of the dial, while the planetary gear based 12 hour chronograph resides in the top portion of the case. The planetary gear used for the chronograph is similar to a column wheel. Then there is the DualTow portion of the watch used to tell the time.
It is really much like a 5 minute clock in the sense that the time is digitally displayed to the nearest five minutes. The minute and hours are placed on two rubber belts (in many color options) that are pulled by the movement. (once the reserve is met). This is due to the high cost of the items we have for sale.
