Brand Profile: Manufacture Royale

Watch companies are proud of their heritage and longevity. While Manufacture Royale’s modern era is quite new, its pedigree is special. The famous philosopher Voltaire founded Manufacture Royale in 1770, to create watches that reflected his values. It closed when he died, and reopened in 2010. Its modern mission is to honor haute horlogerie practices and values, and blend them with creativity and the latest advances in watchmaking. Each beautiful movement is designed and created in Vallorbe, Switzerland, imagining what Voltaire would make and wear if he were alive today.

Maufacture Royale

This unique timepiece combines both a minute repeater and a tourbillon in an unfolding case, which amplifies the sound of the repeater when expanded. The entire mechanism is visible, so you see all moving parts of the repeater.

From $385,000 in 18K rose gold

1770 Micromegas Revolution

A sight to behold, it has two tourbillons that rotate at different speeds; one at six seconds and one at 60 seconds. The open-worked dial shows a rotor, hour subdial and a skeletonized minute disc.

$178,200 in 18K rose gold

Androgyne Royale

The latest addition to Androgyne collection keeps its steampunk inspired case with flexible lugs for comfort. The skeletonized royal blue movement with flying tourbillon shows off the manufacture’s impeccable finishings.
