    Manufacture Royale 1770 Voltige

    Interesting new release, with the escapement separated from the rest of the movement and placed above the dial:

    Definitely interesting, but it's not particularly good looking.

    Probably much better to watch it in action vs pictures.

    Thanks to the OP for posting such a unique watch
    I like that the moving elements are showcased by being above the dial, rather than the 'loads of cogs' look of skeletons, or the 'peering through a knothole' look of open hearts.
    Very cool
    It's the final countdown! PM me before they're all gone!
