In creating the "2020 MC" single-pusher chronograph, Sylvain Pinaud combines precision and creativity, craftsmanship and reinterpretation.
Its elegant and robust mechanism is housed in a case serving as a showcase for the mechanical parts.
This totally integrated chronograph takes up the traditional operation of the most beautiful creations of the past, while being resolutely contemporary.
The choice of a horizontal clutch and column wheel is obvious for the watchmaker because it is beautiful, simple and efficient.
Delicate functions, or others with strong constraints, have ruby bearings to guarantee optimal operation.
The peripheral glass allows the movement to be observed from a new angle.
Every detail is brought to light, every curve highlighted and at every moment other subtleties are discovered.
All finishing work is done by hand to achieve the highest possible level.
The wheels are circled and bevelled, the steel components are black polished and bevelled.
The silver dials are grained and bevelled by hand . A thin perimeter circumscribing each counter dial elegantly reinforces their timeless classicism.
The movement, whose layout is inspired by marine chronometers, reveals through an opening in the back, its large chronometer balance, which beats calmly at 2.5 Hz.
The case, made of grade 5 titanium, plays on the contrasts between brushed and polished edges.
