Decorated with a flamboyant red guilloché dial Virtuoso V houses a jumping hour movement paired with retrograde minutes and a reversed hand-fitting. The Maison's artisan watchmakers and dial-makers have joined forces to give it a new face.

The dial occupies the entire surface of the movement, giving the piece a new identity. While the watchmakers worked on displaying all the information on the same level, the dial-makers designed a completely original guilloché motif for the dial. The original stepped arrangement has given way to greater classicism, which enhances the artistic crafts and exemplary finishes of all the components.

The dial-makers drew on their considerable talent to create this new face. After decorating the metal base with a guilloché motif, they applied a dozen layers of translucent red lacquer. This created depth and enchanting reflections that give the timepiece its magic. In addition to the concentrated technical skill and artistry emanating from the timepiece, its design has become purer and its readability even greater.

In terms of technology, the Virtuoso V integrates two complications that are difficult to combine: jumping hours and retrograde minutes. The jump of the hour disk must be perfectly synchronized with the jump of the minute hand. This timepiece belongs to the Fleurier Complications Collection and is fitted with the patented Amadeo convertible case, allowing it to be transformed into a reversible wristwatch, a table clock, or a pocket watch, without the need for a single tool. As a result, hours and minutes can be found on both sides of the movement. A power reserve indicator completes the indications by displaying a remarkable autonomy of five days, ensured by the use of a single barrel. Finally, to add to the timepiece’s functions, the watchmakers developed a corrector independent of the hour disk that can display a different time zone on each side of the timepiece.
