Romain Gauthier - Insight Micro-Rotor

Introduced at Baselworld 2017, the new Insight Micro-Rotor timepiece was designed by Romain Gauthier with the intent to offer lot of views of the spectacular mechanics and fine finishing, hence the name "Insight".


Hour, minute and small second indications are powered by a beautifully hand-finished, in-house 4 Hz calibre built from the ground up and boasting bidirectional micro-rotor made from 22k solid gold.

This compact oscillating weight – visible dial side and through the display back – turns between two bridges, each fitted with a friction-minimising, wear-resistant ruby bearing. It winds a double mainspring barrel that, when fully wound, offers 80 hours of power.



The two barrels are in series for more constant power to the regulator, meaning the movement’s rate holds up whatever the state of wind.

The open-worked dial is rich of details to discover.  Sweeping around the centre are the small seconds surrounded by the hour-minute subdial at 12 o’clock, beating balance at 6 o’clock and, at 9 o’clock, the swaying micro-rotor, framed within a void created by a circular cut-out in the mainplate.


The bombé sapphire crystal covering the dial gradually rises towards 12 o’clock before steeply dropping again.

The case’s modest 39.5 mm diameter ensures that Insight Micro-Rotor sits very comfortably, even on slimmer wrists. The relatively small size will also make happy many purists.

Through the display back it is possible to observe the train of gears in motion, starting with the reversing gear that lends the mechanism its bidirectionality. The gears and ratchets stand out for their circular arms that feature eye-catching bevels.



The bridges are decorated with hand-made, hand polished bevels and jewel countersinks and are fixed in place using Romain Gauthier’s signature screws with aesthetic S-slot.

The Insight Micro-Rotor red gold and Insight Micro-Rotor platinum are both available in three 10-piece limited editions: with oven-fired white enamel dial, oven-fired black enamel dial and oven-fired blue enamel dial.

The prices for the Romain Gauthier Insight Micro-Rotor, excluding taxes, are Swiss Francs 75,000  for the red gold limited edition and Swiss Francs 88,000 for the platinum limited edition. romaingauthier.com
