It’s not frequently that we see a brand coming to the market with their first watch that comprises both a tourbillon and a monopusher chronograph, with a completely hand-completed in-house development – yet it’s precisely how AkriviA managed this watch . Since it’s appears difficult to develop an much more complicated watch (particularly for a little and youthful brand), Akrivia is presently coming with a less difficult watch. All things considered, basic yet at the same time a significant watch, as we’re discussing the AkriviA Heure Minute Tourbillon.
Brief reminder about Akrivia:
“(Akrivia) was established in 2011 by Rexhep Rexhepi, a youthful expert watchmaker with an intriguing instructive foundation which incorporates an apprenticeship at Patek Philippe at 14 years old, and filling in as development engineer for BNB Concepts (which lost everything in 2010, at that point was somewhat purchased by Hublot, bringing about the Hublot Clé du Temp ).” The primary watch to be uncovered by AkriviA was an amazing one that we covered a year ago, after a fascinating gathering with Rexhep. Rather than showing an out-sourced development cased in an over-planned watch – like a large portion of the new dispatched brands – he made a Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph , a customary piece of mechanical pleasantness housed into a cutting edge and complex case.
Then, in 2014, Rexhep Rexhepi accompanied two different releases of his watch, utilizing a similar plan, case and base movement yet with various complications and displays. The assortments currently comprise a tourbillon watch with bouncing hour and ring and a less difficult hour minute tourbillon watch. The last comes now with another completion and dial.
The AkriviA Heure Minute Tourbillon Stainless Steel with hand-made matt dial
As said, the new watch by AkriviA is more straightforward, compared to the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph . Nonetheless, it remains a significant piece of haute horlogerie with a tourbillon controller. It utilizes a similar case, with its advanced plan (a focal barrel with bended flanks, substituting brushed surfaces and mirror cleaned points) and a complex development (more than 30 parts) shown here in hardened steel, again a cutting edge decision compared the typical valuable metals utilized in tourbillon watches (a 5N gold version and a platinum release are likewise accessible). The case is strong at 43mm x 12.9mm yet, as we’ve found in our past involved with the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph , it wears very comfortable.
The development of the AkriviA Heure Minute Tourbillon depends on the equivalent calibre as the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph , however cleaned from its chronograph module (typically situated on the top side). It presently just shows the hours and minutes on the focal pivot and features the huge one-minute tourbillon at 6 – that estimates 9.6mm, comprises 63 sections and loads 0.45g. This development brags 100 hours power hold (roughly 4 days) and ticks at 21.600 vph. The development is enlivened by hand with internal points, dark cleaned steel parts, Côtes de Genève, hand grained parts, hand cleaned points, rhodium plated and hand engraved. From the back, the view is the equivalent than the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph .
The fundamental curiosity of this version is the dial, that shows a cutting edge viewpoint that is anyway acknowledged with traditional strategies. The matt-cleaning is gotten by a long and meticulous process. A mix of squashed stone and oil is spread out on a level surface like glass or marble. At that point, the steel dial is attached on this blend which at that point completes minuscule round developments until arriving at the ideal homogeneity of the ‘mat-polish’ wrapping up. The outcome is an unadulterated and current face that matches with the straightforward presentation and unique case.
