Romain Gauthier Insight Micro-Rotor Squelette (2020)

Romain Gauthier opts to skeletonize his already complex Micro-Rotor movement.

By Roberta Naas

For the first time in the 15-year lifespan of the Romain Gauthier watch brand, master watchmaker Romain Gauthier opts to skeletonize his already complex and much-coveted Micro-Rotor movement. By stripping away the majority of the metal of the 206-part automatic caliber, the watch — which offers off-center hours, minutes and small seconds — is transformed into a contemporary and alluring skeleton timepiece. Gauthier opted to create the ultra-light bridges and mainplate of natural titanium. For the making of each movement, at least 250 hours of fine craftsmanship are devoted to the hand finishing — beveling, polishing and more — of the main components. As if this version is not enough, Romain Gauthier is offering customizable options with different case materials and more.

Price: CHF155,000 (approx. $167,000) in Carbonium (a carbon composite using aerospace-grade carbon fibers)
