The carousel movement moves inside the case what makes this watch so extremely special. The whole movement makes in one hour a full rotation.An astonishing display of the art of Swiss watchmaking, the new Diaphane One models are «skeleton» watches. Visible from both front and back, the revolving 25-ruby movement draws the connoisseur’s appreciative eye to its display of exquisitely crafted finishings and artfully intricate design. Neither a tourbillon nor a karussel, the mechanism assures the movement of all the elements on the watch face. The platform that serves as the base of the cage holds all the wheels of a traditional timekeeping movement, along with the escapement and the balance wheel. The revolving cage, which houses the wheel train and regulating organ of the watch, completes two full revolutions every hour, causing the balance wheel and the escapement to revolve like satellites around the centre of the watch. Like a comet that travels through space and time, the watch is in the process of perpetual change.
I have kept the leather strap and use an aluminum one for daily use..
