The Chronomètre FB RSM reinterprets the architecture and design of the Marine Clock no. 8 produced by the master clockmaker in Paris in 1768. Only 20 movements will be produced, and several key exterior elements can be chosen by the collector. They may be fitted inside a round or octagonal case. The FB 2RSM.1 with a round case in 18-carat white gold and a satin-finished 18-carat gold dial with blue CVD treatment is one of the variations offered by the manufacture.
The FB-T.FC-RSM calibre features a pillar-type architecture, in which both the barrel and the inverted fusee are suspended and patented. His mechanism ensures the distribution of energy by delivering ‘constant force’ to the patented tourbillon with direct-drive seconds. The creation of a deadbeat seconds mechanism is a major challenge for any watch that claims to earn chronometer certification. Since the regularity of the torque is the essence of a constant-force calibre, interrupting its flow 60 times a minute without compromising its linearity is a true technical feat – which is why the majority of deadbeat seconds movements fail to achieve COSC certification.
