AkriviA is a new manufacturer based in Geneva started by Rexhep Rexhepi, a young but experienced watchmaker whose career started with an apprenticeship at Patek Philippe when he was a teenager.
The first AkriviA watch clearly states the ambition to fully respect the heritage of high-end watchmaking traditions while developing a contemporary and distinctive style.
The AkriviA Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph combines a tourbillon with a monopusher column-wheel chronograph.
The dial has a black PVD–coated German silver base with central hours and minutes sword-shaped hands. The chronograph seconds and minutes counters are positioned at 2 o'clock and 10 o'clock respectively. Between 8 and 9 o'clock we find the 100-hours power reserve indicator (or 72 hours when the chronograph is engaged).
The Tourbillon, which performs a full rotation in 60 seconds, takes a large part of the main dial. Cage pillars are made of titanium with bridges in hand blocked and facet polished steel. The total weight of the cage, composed of 63 parts, is just 0.45g.
The sapphire case-back reveals the high standard of finishing. The different bridges are all adorned with straight Côtes de Genève, created with boxwood and covered in diamond paste. They are all bevelled by hand.
Each AkriviA Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph is entirely assembled by hand by the same watchmaker. Only 10 samples of this ultra-exclusive timepiece will be manufactured at a price of US$ 176,000 for the steel version and US$ 220,000 for the red gold one.
