The task requires the utmost dexterity. Thus, the off-centre grey disc, encircled by a black hour dialand a precise minute track, displays the hour and minute hands. This space also incorporates a small second hand. The distinctive scenography provides all the surface area necessary to display the key elements of the movement without laying them bare. Thecogs, cylinders, and micro-rotor are displayed and supported by stylised ebony-coloured parallel decks. This unparalleled configuration endows the timepiece with a firmly horological personality that is resolutely atypical.
The customisation workshop is amaster of sophisticated finishes. The Gravity Equal Force's dial is the ideal surface to apply an exclusive process developed in-house, called Magma Moon Coating (MMC). This technique, which used a laser to create a texture in relief in a previous project, enabled replicating the visible hemisphere of the moon on the basis of official NASA images. Employing this sophisticated technique expands the range of possibilities in terms of surface coating. In this instance, the aesthetic option flies us to the dark side of the earth's satellite and its ruggedness, accentuating the mysterious aspect of the timepiece.
The 41mm-diameter steel casing, accommodating an ingenious mechanical architecture, also benefits from a specific treatment, a Label Noir signature. The Amorphous Diamond Like Carbon (ADLC) lends it a discreet and elegant matt tint while reinforcing its protective hardness and ductility. The casing is home to the ASB19 calibre. Designed and assembled in-house, it excels in its complexity in the pursuit of simplicity. Put together from 202 components, it was created after careful observation of an antique pocket watch. Thanks to its stop disengagement mechanism, coupled with a self-winding movement, the Gravity Equal Force is the first timepiece in the history of watchmaking to have a constant force transmission using a Maltese cross. Such injection of power into the balance guarantees flawless uniform precision. This calibre, with a frequency of 25,200 vibrations per hour, also delivers a generous power reserve of 72 hours.
