Function guides design and this leads to great originality... It is to display the date discs, and by extension the phase of the moon, that the Saphir's dial has been perforated in this way, completed by a shaded sapphire disc to facilitate reading. And this has produced the so original and remarkable Royale Saphir design which makes the polished hands and the indexes enhanced by luminova stand out. The Royale Saphir has all the complications of the Calibre Royal: the double date change at midnight, the subsidiary second at four o'clock, a power reserve in symmetry protected by the fleur-de-lys and a moon phase at six o'clock.
The Royale collection is operated by the Calibre Royal, conceived, prototyped, controlled and assembled in the Pequignet Haute Horlogerie laboratories in Morteau. Its design required no less than 279 business plans; it is made of 318 components, 316 of which were designed specifically by our company. With 8 international patents, Calibre Royal is a real masterpiece of innovation... and 100% French!
Lovers of watch-making will be charmed by the transparent back to its case, which reveals the balance wheel and the entire movement. The oscillating weights are positioned to allow high visibility. The large balance wheel, the lever and the swivel escape wheel can be viewed without difficulty.
