Inspired by the Age of Enlightenment and by Voltaire who created the Manufacture Royale d’Horlogerie in Ferney, this brand discreetly launched two years ago by a watch industry professional offers a range of extremely avant-garde tourbillon watches. After a surprising Opéra model featuring a “bellows-type” case, the first minute repeater tourbillon model with an over 100-hour power reserve, Manufacture Royale introduced its Androgyne at Baselworld in several versions, intended according to the respective finishes for watch lovers of both sexes. The personality of this new 2012 launch is as strong as that of its founder, Arnaud Faivre, an exuberant individual brimming with energy and ideas. The quest for original design brooks no compromise with the standards of the profession, which are scrupulously respected. Fully mastery the much sought-after art of vertically integrated production, the brand seems to have sets its feet on a right royal path indeed.
