This  model has no equivalent in the field of Fine Watchmaking. With its gyroscopic module that enables the regulating organ to remain constantly horizontal - however the watch itself is positioned - and thus to protect the mechanism from the effect of earthly gravity, the line of Christophe Colomb models is truly unique. This principle ensures enhanced regularity of the escapement, without the position of the watch interfering with the rate of the movement - an approach that thereby improves precision. This model features also the Equation of Time and was awarded at GPHG in Geneva in 2011 in the category "Best Complicated Watch". Limited edition of 75 units
