Paying homage to the classic timepieces and to the first Daytonas, with their manual winding mechanism, was a tremendous challenge. It took us two years of research and development to create a barrel that would meet our expectations. The barrel replaces the automatic winding, allowing our client’s timepiece to have a power reserve of 72 hours. Our barrel reveals the skeleton movement. Each component of this extraordinary caliber is skeletonized with the highest precision, sandblasted, and beveled by hand before receiving a nickel palladium finish giving it this unique color.
