T-Rex Tourbillon is an extraordinary one-of-a-kind model featuring an authentic piece of fossilised Carcharodontus Saharicus tooth, believed to date back 65 million years and forming the tongue of the dinosaur depicted on the dial. The creature’s head is entirely engraved and coloured by hand, while the green jungle effect consists of scarab beetle elytra marquetry.

The monstrous teeth of the Sahara

66 million years ago

Fossilized Carcharodontus tooth

It all started with this authentic tooth belonging to Carcharodontus Saharicus, a cousin of the T-Rex, which has fossilized over time. Its name means: "the monstrous teeth of the Sahara" and it was one of the largest of the theropods, rivaling the Tyrannosaurus Rex in size.

The King of the Tyrant Lizards

Tyrannosaurus Rex, the etymology of which means "king of the tyrant lizards", was one of the most famous species of dinosaur and probably the largest carnivorous one of all. It also has the reputation of having been the most ferocious. It was also one of the last non-avian dinosaurs to live until the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event 66 million years ago.

Intro

The T-Rex could measure up to 15 meters in length, five to six meters in height and weighed around seven tons. It had a long and powerful jaw, capable of opening to more than a meter, and which included about 60 crenellated teeth up to 18 cm long.

Beetle elytra

Buprestidae

The dial is an inlay of beetle elytra with incredible iridescent colors ranging from blue to green, with rainbow reflections. These beetles are from the Buprestes family, spending their larval life (two years) in tree trunks. Their adult life is short (three weeks).

The beetles are not killed for their elytra which are harvested at the end of their natural life.
