Rising horological star Rexhep Rexhepi has unveiled his third design under his AkriviA brand, a chiming tourbillon with jumping hour.
Geneva-based AkriviA states that the Tourbillon Chiming Jump Hour represents an important milestone in the three year history of the company as the watch’s manually wound movement is its first to be designed and developed in-house.
Rexhepi, entered the world of horology aged just 14, when Patek Philippe took him on as an apprentice, then in 2012 he founded AkriviA to embody the “finest traditions of haute horology combined with novel and fresh shapes”.
The 43mm Tourbillon Chiming Jump Hour strikes on the hours but includes a silent function, activated by a pusher at the 3 o’clock, and achieves its 100 hour power reserve using a single barrel.
The dial features a central hours aperture and a single minute hand, while the tourbillon completes one rotation every 60 seconds at the six o’clock.
