01
CALIBRE RM27-03
Manual winding tourbillon movement with hours and minutes

BARREL PAWL WITH PROGRESSIVE RECOIL This device permits an appreciable winding gain (circa 20%), especially during the start of winding. It also promotes the even distribution of the mainspring’s internal tension.

SPLINE SCREWS IN TITANIUM GRADE 5 FOR THE BRIDGES AND CASE This permits better control of the torque applied to the screws during assembly. These screws are therefore unaffected by physical manipulation during assembly or disassembly and age well.

BRIDGES IN TITANIUM GRADE 5

Highly stylised, the sharp, streamlined curves of the skeletonised bridges encircling the barrel, the great wheel and the mechanical winding tourbillon beating at 3 Hz together evoke the forward-facing head of a bull. A symbol of Spain, this animal is also Nadal’s chosen emblem.

BASEPLATE IN CARBON TPT®

The skeletonised baseplate is a feat of machining. A master component of the RM 27-03, it has been subjected to a full battery of extreme approval tests in order to optimise its mechanical properties.

TORQUE LIMITING CROWN

The crown is in Carbon en Quartz TPT®, in the shape of a tennis ball. This additional security system prevents from accidental overwinding, which could cause damage to the winding stem or place extreme pressure on the mainspring barrel.
