The eternal wheel

Ashoka chakra

The hand-engraved applique represents 20 spokes of the eternal wheel of the law of Dharma, embodied by the Ashoka chakra found on the Indian flag. The sense of movement suggested by the wheel is highlighted by the micro-painting delicately applied to the different spokes and in the centre of the engraving.

Tourbillon

The world's best movement

ONLY INDIA is fitted with the legendary LM-35 movement, winner of the latest International Chronometry Competition.

The elegant dial includes a technical touch: a view of the tourbillon’s rotating cage. Inside, the balance spring, anchor and anchor wheel perform a full rotation every minute.

For this mechanism to carry off the first prize at the International Chronometry Competition, it had to pass four months’ worth of tests – and sustain no fewer than 150 impacts.
