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.

Water Resistance - Although we may pressure test a watch prior to being shipped, we do not guarantee any watch to be waterproof and do not cover any water issues under any type of warranty. The reason is because there are too many life factors that can contribute to a watch not being water resistant anymore. Statistically, this applies to even the most careful of watch wearers ...show moreshow less
Box and Papers - All box and papers do is guarantee the box and papers are authentic. The bad guys know that people put trust into original papers so by putting genuine papers with a fake watch allows them to pull off a scam...and when the buyer finds out down the road the watch was fake, the scammer is long gone. The only way to check authenticity is by having the watch checked. As with most preowned watches, the original box and/or papers are not available because they were not retained by the original owner. ...show moreshow less
