Derrick Gaz Tourbillon

18K Rose Gold
Limited edition of 3 watches

LM-66.50.50

The Derrick Gaz is a wholescale invention: a timepiece at the crossroads of high precision, watchmaking art and the great tradition of automatons. It is based on an attentive observation of the traditional gas extraction systems of the nineteenth century.

The gas derrick rises up majestically on the left-hand side of the timepiece. This skeletonized structure, made from Grade 5 Titanium, is a perfect reproduction in every detail of the derricks dedicated to underground exploration. The drill tower achieves an exceptional technical feat by rotating constantly and completing one full turn per minute.

And so the gas begins its journey along the pipeline, symbolised by the tourbillon bridge.

The gas pipeline leads to the valve handle. This is what controls the flow of fuel on a real-life gas network. With the same desire for consistency, this handle is directly connected to the movement. It rotates constantly (four turns per minute), as if it were regulating the energy supply to the Derrick Gaz watch.

The pipeline continues its path to a white dial: the gas derrick’s manometer serves as the Power Reserve indicator for the Derrick Gaz. Everything on it – down to the tiniest details, including the shape, type, proportions and design of the hand – is a faithful reproduction of the real manometers to be found on gas networks.

The journey comes to a natural close at 3 o’clock, where the gas is stored in a tank made from entirely polished 316L steel.
