Women also love fine mechanical watches. And it is to them that Pierre DeRoche has dedicated this superb interpretation of the Calibre Royal Retro. With its display of six retrograde seconds hands, the movement is unique in its genre. These hands, on the visible movement, take over from each other for ten seconds, creating a fascinating mechanical ballet and making each minute seem like a moment of eternity.
This magnificent complication is enhanced by the finishing, which is designed by a woman for women and gives this timepiece a poetic and floral touch. The elegantly-shaped bridges are adorned with delicate motifs, highlighted by a subtle setting of jewels. The bezel, also set with jewels, adds a touch of sublimity to this harmoniously designed piece.
A watch that women will love a little, a lot, passionately, or to distraction.

Pierre DeRoche TNT RendezVous [Limited Edition]

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Pierre DeRoche has combined the most advanced mechanical watchmaking with subtle musical poetry in its latest creation, the RendezVous, which displays a double gong under the sapphire crystal.
Coupled with the striking-mechanism’s on/off function, this device is unique on this kind of watch and gives this exceptional timepiece its intrinsic value. When the alarm is released, the mechanism reveals its secrets: first, the fast-and-slow, then the striking mechanism’s bridge moving into action, and finally the hammers successively striking the two “Chartres” chimes (the two gongs turn more than 360° but are of different lengths).
With a few clear, limpid notes produced by the best watch craftsmen from the Joux Valley, the RendezVous will remind you of your day’s appointments.
