The second model in a collection that cultivates its distinctive nature in a generously sized case inspired by flying saucers, Roswell Voyage guides us onto the slopes of the Matterhorn. On the caseback, a piece of rock from the famous Swiss alpine peak, cut to reproduce its shape, sits inside a hermetically sealed capsule standing out against a sky featuring a setting moon. The characteristic peak appears on the dial side, cut out from the micro-rotor of the exclusive ISE (Irreversible Schwarz Etienne) inverted movement that also reveals its balance-wheel bearing the SE logo. The scene is associated with a sunrise, symbolized by the rays darting forth from the small seconds. As the moon gradually sets, the sun in turn rises. Within this exceptional creation, everything is based on reversals and even the strap plays according to the same rules with a brightly colored lining designed to spring a pleasing aesthetic surprise.
