The TEC1 wristwatch is at once both alluring and intriguing. It masterfully integrates three complexities never before combined by the brand in such an elegant rendition. A tourbillon, a column wheel chronograph and an automatic winding system deftly blend in a superb avant-garde yet classic new timepiece. The TEC1, the brand's third tourbillon, joins the sophisticated Royal Collection, which is inspired by the timepieces created in the early part of John Arnold's life for King George III and members of the royal court.
