While the 7-Day Tourbillon with Inverted Hand-fitting is already well known to collectors, the Amadeo Fleurier 0 version leaves no doubt as to its innovative nature. The new 6 o’clock position of the tourbillon enabled a complete rethink of the structure of the movement, of which all parts, with the exception of the tourbillon, are borne by two three-quarter plates. This new arrangement frees up more space for the regulating organ. The diameter of the carriage is thus enlarged to 13.5 mm, an evolution that sublimates the magic of this “mechanical star”. This model is as ever presented in an elegant Amadeo case that serves to convert the timepiece into a table clock, a pocket-watch or a reversible wristwatch without any need for resorting to tools.
