We have spent over 137 years mastering the conception, construction and production of complications. As such, our entire philosophy revolves around these rare, precious and consistently unique creations. Here you'll discover how our mastery of complications has become the ultimate display of our Savoir-Faire.
One-fifth of a second accuracy takes years to master. It is to this day one of the most sophisticated complications in the watchmaking mechanism and one of the hardest to perfect. Several construction types have been developed, but the most prestigious and spectacular one is the column-wheel chronograph.
The column wheel is a strategic component that pilots chronograph starting, stopping and resetting operations, and does so with a minimum force to avoid wear.
