Romain Gauthier - Logical One Natural Titanium

| No comment
Created by talented Swiss watchmaker Romain Gauthier, the Logical One is among the most fascinating timepieces that we have seen in the last few years. We first wrote about it here.


After the versions in red gold, white gold, platinum and black titanium, Romain Gauthier decided to expand the line with the Logical One Natural Titanium. He explains: "I really wanted to see the Logical One Natural Titanium become a reality because I think Logical One and natural titanium were made to go together.”


Winner of the Men's Complications Watch Prize at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve 2013, the Logical One features a revolutionary snail cam and friction-minimising ruby-link chain, plus sapphire-lined mainspring barrel, to offer nearly two days of constant force in a unique reinterpretation of a traditional chain-and-fusee style mechanism.

Featuring hours and minutes on an off-centre subdial, small seconds, and a 46-hour power reserve indicator on the back, the Logical One Natural Titanium is available with oven-fired white enamel dial with flame-blued steel hands, oven-fired black enamel dial with gold hands, or black Clous de Paris dial with gold hands.



The meticulously hand-decorated, in-house 4 Hz (28,800 vph) movement can be admired dial side and through the display back, and is wound using an unusual winding pusher, integrated into the caseband at 9 o'clock, which efficiently transmits force to the barrel on the same plane. The time can be set using the crown at 2 o’clock.


The mainplate, mainspring barrel bridge and lower bridge for the constant force mechanism bear a deep anthracite ADLC finish. Balance bridge, escape wheel bridge and power reserve indicator bridge are in a bright palladium-treated brass emphasising the fine hand-finishing of these parts.


The 43 mm x 15 mm titanium case, the lugs, bezel, caseback, pusher and time-setting crown are satin-finished creating an effective contrast with the polished caseband.

Completed by an alligator leather strap with light grey stitching, the Romain Gauthier Natural Titanium has a price of Swiss Francs 98,000 with the blackened brass dial with Clous de Paris decoration or Swiss Francs 102,000 with the oven-fired - white or black - enamel dial. romaingauthier.com
