Three is a solid number in our lives. We can examine three adaptations of time – past, present and future for example. Three is likewise the quantity of measurements we people can see as an animal varieties.

The steel balls inside should be about the thickness of a human hair. Three gold plaques, in the middle of the tourbillons, give the load to the idleness to keep the carriage abandoning emptying an excess of force out of the movement.
From the back, you can see the evenly positioned twofold barrel set-up, putting away the force for the development. The scaffold over the differential is enlivened with Côtes de Geneve and the mainplate has been given a perlage design.

The majority of the case, similar to the caseband, bezel, caseback, are done in titanium which helps hold the load down. It is accessible with rose or white gold accents, or with a dark PVD covering. The tradable carries and the 8 help sections for the case are done in gold and held set up with screws from the front and back of the case, paying little heed to the current variant. A domed sapphire gem, with hostile to intelligent covering, covers the design of the carriage and tourbillons.
