There’s something delightfully mad about Pierre DeRoche watches.
Thankfully this one doesn’t disappoint in that regard :-)
[Press Release] The latest TNT Royal Retro model by PIERRE DEROCHE cuts a powerful figure in its new garb featuring a rubber-moulded bezel – an even sportier version that sublimates the polished and matt finishes of the titanium and steel case.
It thereby also provides a virile setting for its perpetually moving mechanism.
A powerful identity for an exceptional mechanism: six retrograde seconds mechanisms creating a truly spectacular effect!
This playful complication vividly testifies to an unprecedented approach.
The retrograde hand is driven by gears, before returning to its initial position once the baton has been passed on, thanks to a strip-spring replacing the traditional balance-spring system.
This technical solution, which facilitates adjustments and enhances shock resistance, is entirely visible thanks to the dial-free design revealing the virtuoso skill of the Vallée de Joux watchmakers.
This avant-garde attitude is also epitomised in the single central bridge single-handedly bearing 12 pivots, conveying an impressive sense of detail also reflected in the sturdy 47.5 mm titanium and steel case with 11 intricately fitted and screwed parts, composing a powerful timepiece with an architecture and design bearing the signature of PIERRE DEROCHE.
