Romain Gauthier Logical One Natural Titanium Watch
The Romain Gauthier Logical One is a widely celebrated accessory and a pretty popular watch among collectors. The reason behind this is its constant-force mechanism, that’s beautiful and revolutionary at the same, but to us it’s Romain Gauthier Logical One’s snail cam that replaces the traditional fusee.
The watch has been decked in various precious metals, such as pink and white gold, and of course, platinum. But the brand has gone one step further with the Romain Gauthier Logical One Natural Titanium, which is not something that high-end collectors think of first.
Sure, the titanium’s strength and lightness cannot be ignored, but collectors might associate titanium with sports and tool watches. A perfect match or not?
The new Romain Gauthier Logical One Natural Titanium doesn’t stray away from the successful recipe we all love so much. The lugs, bezel, caseback, and crown of the Grade 5 natural titanium case were all satin-finished and the movement has also been finely decorated with various finishes, such as ADLC and palladium.
Speaking of the movement, it was developed entirely in-house; it features 359 components and requires 63 jewels, 26 of them being dedicated solely to the chain used for the constant-force mechanism. The movement beats at 4Hz and offers 46 hours of power reserve, in case you’re interested in this kind of details.
The dial reveals that three variants will be available, specifically a white enamel dial with flame-blued steel hands, a black enamel version with 18k gold hands, and one with a black dial with Clous de Paris guilloche and 18k gold hands.
A matte-black alligator strap, with matching light grey stitching, acts as the finishing touch to a 102,000 Swiss francs watch – the white or black enamel dial versions – while the model with the black Clous de Paris dial costs 98,000 Swiss francs.
