Scrupulously respecting the brand’s DNA, the Cabestan Trapezium evolved from the geometrical form of a quadrilateral. Regardless of the viewing angle, a trapezium is visible. The result is an intricately woven combination of quadrilaterals that create a strikingly powerful design.
This simple design concept, coupled with the off-center indexes, makes reading time from the rotary drums simple and intuitive. This design also provides spectacular 360° views of the movement inside with its miniature chain and fusee, the myriad wheels and drums, and the vertical tourbillon. The prominent, fold-out crowns are integral components of this remarkable timepiece, accentuating the notion of inclination, and making winding and time-setting simple.
The Cabestan movement, renowned for its spectacular design and amazing accuracy, is at the heart of Trapezium. The fusée-and-chain system perfectly and automatically compensate for the loss of torque of the mainspring and deliver a constant force to the tourbillon. And due to its ingenious vertical positioning, Trapezium’s tourbillion compensates exceptionally well for the variations due to the effects of the Earth’s gravity.
