To be launched in late 2011, the Automatic Jumping Hour will be released as a limited edition of 500 pieces.
It has a 42mm stainless steel case and the face is decorated with black numerals against a barleycorn guilloche dial.
The jump hour window tucks into the off centered minutes dial, while the seconds counter intersects in a balanced inverted figure eight.
Inside is a Dubois Depraz movement embellished with Geneva Waves and an oscillating weight with the brand’s PHI symbol.
MSRP will be around the US$5K mark.
