The real magic of the timepiece resides in the position of the escapement mounting which reigns in splendor at 12 o’clock – and does so without any visible link to the rest of the movement. The variable inertia balance wheel is adjusted using four weights. Rather than being circular, the balance wheel felloe is cut in the shape of a Celtic axe head.
3D TIME SETTING
The PH-01 boasts an original, direct time display. Confined within a 100-degree span, this allows the human eye to capture the information immediately, with no need to take in the entire 360 degrees of a traditional display. To achieve this tour de force, the PH-010 calibre as to give birth to hand from the inside of the calibre and force them to bend two times to find a path over the dial.
The information follows a structured, two-level hierarchy, ensuring a constantly unobstructed view of the time, since the hour and minute hands never overlap. Both indications are retrograde, providing overall style consistency; the hour display, meanwhile, is not only retrograde but also jumping.
Retrograde jumping hour, synchronized with a conical amphitheater, integrated 3D hand

Independent correction of hours and minutes.
