OUTER LIM­ITS VIAN­NEY HAL­TER – DEEP SPACE TOUR­BIL­LON

24-7 (Singapore) - - I For... Indie Treasures -

In­de­pen­dent watch­mak­ing’s “king of steam­punk”, Vian­ney Hal­ter, re­turns with

his first cre­ation in seven years. The Deep Space Tour­bil­lon brims with Hal­ter’s sig­na­ture icon­o­clas­tic bril­liance: Its in­trigu­ing mech­a­nism – a triple-axis cen­tral

tour­bil­lon – is show­cased un­der a domed sap­phire crys­tal that be­fits the sci-fi-in­spired mini me­chan­i­cal sculp­ture. Framed by an hour-and-minute track,

with curved hands that hug the nu­mer­als as they tell the time, the tour­bil­lon move­ment ro­tates on three axes in the mid­dle of the dial. It makes a ro­ta­tion ev­ery 40 sec­onds on the first axis, ev­ery six min­utes on the per­pen­dic­u­lar sec­ond

axis, and ev­ery 30 min­utes on the third around the move­ment’s main plate.
