Steven Holtzman, founder of Maîtres du Temps, along with master horologist Roger Dubuis, one of three master watchmakers behind the creation of Maitres du Temps Chapter One, for series of presentations in Moscow and Kiev.

The Triumph Gallery in Moscow held a high-profile unveiling and press conference that featured Chapter One set against the backdrop of the Signs of Time exhibition project.

“It was both exciting and a special privilege for Maîtres du Temps to present Chapter One in the bustling markets of Moscow and Kiev,” said Mr. Holtzman. “The Russian and Ukrainian consumer has a great appreciation for luxury goods of outstanding quality, and that is compounded by a respect for complicated timepieces and the finer things in life.”

The Maîtres du Temps press conference in the Ukraine was held in the Regency Hyatt Kiev Bibliotheque.

Chapter One is a world-first combination of complications and is the result of a unique collaboration between master watchmakers Christophe Claret, Roger Dubuis and Peter Speake-Marin. The timepiece features a manual-wind mechanical movement, one-minute tourbillon, mono-pusher chronograph, retrograde date indicator, retrograde GMT indicator, day of the week indication on a roller and a patented precise moon phase indication on a roller. Chapter One’s tonneau-shaped case is available in a limited series of 11 pieces with a suggested retail of US$400,000.
