Akrivia - Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir

Rexehp Rexhepi founded Akrivia four years ago, when he was just 25 years old. He decided to create his own brand in order to pursue his ideals of precision and symmetry in the respect of traditional Haute Horlogerie but with a strong aesthetic identity.

The new Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir, presented on occasion of Baselworld 2016 to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the brand, respects the design code that made Akrivia timepieces immediately recognizable but introduces something new. In fact, this is the first Akrivia model with a dial featuring numerals. And not ordinary numerals.


As the name of the model suggests, the hand-finished Arabic numerals are first black polished and then thermally blued. Black polishing, also referred to as mirror polishing, is one of the most challenging and time-consuming finishing technique. finished in this way, the numerals perfectly complement the two-toned, matte-polished dial and the typical hand-made Akrivia hands.

Using a centuries-old technique, each numeral has two “feet” that are used to secure it to the dial where two corresponding holes are drilled into the surface.

The creation of one single dial of the Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir requires more than one week to be completed.


Positioned at 6 o’clock, the large tourbillon opening features a highly polished frame in stainless steel. The barrette styled tourbillon bridge is another characterising element of AkriviA’s timepieces. The open worked, filigreed arch requires absolute precision to successfully craft a perfect finish on all surfaces. The 60-second tourbillon is composed of 63 parts with hand-bevelled and hand-blued escapement wheel


The symmetry ideal of Rexehp Rexhepi is reasserted also in the case back, with the central bridge crossing the entire movement width and culminating in a single jewel at its centre.

Visible through the sapphire crystal, the 3 Hz (21,600 vph) hand-wound movement offers a remarkable power reserve of 100 hours and it is meticulously hand-finished using traditional Haute Horlogerie techniques: black polish, Côte de Genève engraved striping, hand polished and brushed surfaces, rhodium treatment, beading and hand engraving.


The 42.5 mm x 12.90 mm case of the AkriviA Tourbillon Barrette-Miroir is available in stainless steel, titanium grade 5, red gold, or platinum with prices starting at around Swiss Francs 165,000 without local taxes. akrivia.com
