Requiem’ has preserved its fearsomely sober and elegant estheticism and same technical skills, among other things : power reserve of 8 days, rearmament of the base of the skull and a hours display via a «slow» jumping disc and sweeping minutes.
A few side openings were especially conceived and design as such as pirate’s scarifications, in order to allow only a few reflections of light to filter, beautifying the mechanical movement and its hourly vision through the orbits.
The protective housing formed by the skull around the movement allows only a few reflections of light to filter through openings: two crossed swords, symbol of the brand, placed on the temples, such as openings on another temporal space, suggest the rhythmic oscillations of the escapement.
