Romain Gauthier Logical One Secret

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-patented constant force movement, which propels the hours, minutes and seconds.

The in-house manufacture movement calibre features an innovative quadruple-patent-pending chain-and-fusee style constant force system with ruby chain links, ergonomic push button winding system, dial-side visible balance, mainspring barrel with sapphire inserts, and a 60-hour power reserve indicator. Romain Gauthier’s innovation offers a new, more reliable and more effective, way of supplying constant force to a watch movement. It replaces the fusee with a slowly rotating snail cam, which is positioned at 10 o’clock to the left of the hour/minutes dial, and are on the same level as the mainspring barrel. In such a way, only one short line of chain is needed instead of the multiple layers of chain composed of small and weak links. At the same time, the snail cam is no longer transmitting force at an angle, which makes it more efficient and reduces stress.

The links on Romain Gauthier’s constant force system are made from low-friction hard-wearing synthetic rubies, which are now joined by “placing a fine sheet of paper between the links and connecting plates, riveting them together and burning the paper away to create a fine (though imprecise) tolerance, with a snap clip system that offers high-precision, simplicity, reliability and consistency.” Another interesting thing about this watch is its innovative push button winding system, which includes the pusher set into the left caseband that transmits force to the barrel on the same plane. The mainspring barrel lined with synthetic sapphire plates, which has a low coefficient of friction with steel and eliminates all sources of uneven friction.

The in-house movement features the highest level of haute horlogerie finishing: hand polished screws and jewel countersinks, and hand bevelled and polished bridges and plates. It beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides around 60 hours of power reserve. Romain Gauthier Logical One Secret is water resistant to 30 meters and it arrives on an alligator leather hand-stitched strap, with red gold pin buckle. This model is issued in a limited edition.

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 wante...
