A regulator with deadbeat seconds

The Chronomètre FB RSM reinterprets the architecture and design of the Marine Clock no. 8 produced by the master clockmaker in Paris in 1768. Only 20 movements will be produced, and several key exterior elements can be chosen by the collector. They may be fitted inside a round or octagonal case. The FB 2RSM.2 with a round case and a dial in 18-carat rose gold is one of the variations offered by the manufacture.

Features

00
The hours are read off via a rotating disc at 2 o'clock; the minutes are indicated by a facetted and skeletonised hand on the subdial at 12 o'clock; and, as a symbol of precision, the seconds hand occupies a central position on the watch face.
00
The 18-carat gold dial is hand-engraved and bears the "No. 8" inscription like the original No. 8 Marine Clock, the inspiration for the FB RSM model.

The FB-T.FC-RSM calibre features a pillar-type architecture, in which both the barrel and the inverted fusee are suspended and patented. His mechanism ensures the distribution of energy by delivering ‘constant force’ to the patented tourbillon with direct-drive seconds.
