Guy Ellia QP (Quantieme Perpetual) True Perpetual Calendar Ultra Thin in 18K Rose Gold. Sapphire Disc Display. Grand Masterpiece.
Very rare and difficult to produce, less than 20 pieces ever produced. this is a rare number 009.
The clear calendar… with diamonds as stars on a mesmerizing nightly sky
Luxury watchmaking makes it possible to pair sheer elegance with a
dial bearing a great deal of information. The Time Space QP proves
this assertion with originality and personality.
QP stands for Quantième Perpétuel, or Perpetual Calendar, a complete
calendar displayed through the carefully calculated slant of four auxiliary
counters in sapphire crystal set symmetrically around two central hands
attached directly to the plate and not to the dial.
A bushed bottom plate, masquerading as a dial and reinforced with a
black ruthenium treatment, allows the perpetual calendar to maintain a
certain amount of finesse… In more concrete terms, 7.75 millimetres of
finesse. It is a clear allusion to the ‘Couteaux’ watches, so popular with
the dandies of the Roaring Twenties, so thin they were imperceptible in
the pocket, so elegant…
A Frédéric Piguet mechanical hand-wound calibre harboured in a rose
gold case measuring 46.8 millimetres in diameter allows the
owner to read the hour, minute, day, month, date and moon phases,
while taking account of leap years.
The transparent mechanism, visible through the bottom plate and the
edge of the case, constitutes a true mechanical feat. The case itself is
made up of three parts and its casing ring is made of sapphire crystal.
The Time Space, original ambassador of Guy Ellia, is water resistant
to 30 metres, mounted on an alligator leather strap with a gold folding
clasp and boasts a diamond cabochon on the winding button.
