Romain Gauthier Logical One Natural Titanium

Marina Milojević | 03.14.16 | 07:30 PM

Romain Gauthier has revealed the Logical One Natural Titanium, a new timepiece in the Logical One series of ultra-high-end watches.

As explained by the famous independent watch manufacturer, the new addition to the Logical One collection surely deviates from traditional case materials typically enjoyed by ultra-high-end collectors. In Gauthier’s own words: “Titanium is still a step too far for many. I respect that, but I believe that in time high-end collectors will move over and eventually won’t think twice about acquiring an haute horlogerie timepiece in titanium. For Logical One Natural Titanium, my instinct was ‘build it, and they shall come’. Personally, I really wanted to see Logical One Natural Titanium become a reality, not least because I think Logical One and natural titanium were made to go together.”

The Logical One Natural Titanium is made from the sturdy and lightweight titanium, a material that is most often associated with sporty, or experimental watches. Romain Gauthier decided to use it because its robustness makes for a durable case; its light weight provides an eminently comfortable wear, while its lustrous silvery shade makes a strong visual statement. The beauty of the material is underlined by contrasting finishes applied to the case and the movement. The alternating interplay of light and dark, polished and satin-finished, brings out all of its splendor to the forefront.

The Logical One in Natural Titanium represents the 21st-century reinterpretation of a traditional chain-and-fusee style constant force mechanism. The system is visible on the display to the left of the hour-minute sub-dial. The revolutionary snail cam and friction-minimizing ruby-link chain, plus sapphire-lined mainspring barrel, offer around two days of constant force. The snail cam and the barrel are positioned on the same plane, so the force is transmitted in a straight line, for an ultra-efficient transfer of energy. The watch is wound via the state-of-the-art push button winding system, with the pusher set into the case band at 9 o’clock.

The in-house movement was conceived, developed, assembled, and tested at Manufacture Romain Gauthier in the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland. It comprises no less than 359 components and 63 jewels, including 26 jewels for the constant-force chain. The movement beats at a frequency of 28800 vibrations per hour, and provides around 46 hours of power reserve. The mechanical marvel is contained inside of a 43mm x 15mm case, which is water resistant to up to 30 meters.

In both of its renditions, the watch is mounted on a matte black alligator leather strap with light grey stitching.

Romain Gauthier, an independent Swiss manufacturer of watches, has just released a new haute joaillerie / haute horlogerie watch named the Logical One Secret.

Romain Gauthier Logical One Secret is announced as the ultimate synthesis of fine arts and haute horlogerie. This beautiful watch arrives in a 43mm-wide case with fully integrated cover, set with 181 invisibly set baguette diamonds, totaling approximately 7 carats. The invisible setting is one of the most demanding jewelry procedures since each and every stone has to be cautiously grooved, which involves a risk of breaking the stone. A single press on the discrete pusher will lift up the diamond-encrusted cover to reveal the award-winning multi...
