Tourbillon Barrette Miroir

In the fifth creation by Rexhep Rexhepi and AkriviA, the focus moves to finishing. Only the very highest quality of traditional finishes — fine-grained brushing, matt treatments and mirror polish — have always been used in AkriviA timepieces, but in the Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir, they take core position.

Textures become the primary signifiers of quality, from the hour numerals, which are polished and then heat-blued by hand, to the openworked tourbillon bridge, with its sharply bevelled internal angles.

The Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir is a watch for connoisseurs who not only value the precision chronometry of a tourbillon with free-sprung balane, but can also recognise the hallmarks of traditional haut-de-gamme finishing.

The smooth and symmetric curve of the steel bridge emphasises its sharp internal angles and black-polished surface
