One of the best thing I did when I was back was getting invited to spend an evening with Mr. Carlos A. Rosillo. It was indeed an honour and a big thanks to FJ Benjamin for the invite and Mr. Rosillo for his time. You can read the 'interview' here:
I have to say it was a nice evening. Mr. Rosillo is indeed very passionate about his brand and very proud with what he and his partners and team have achieved in the past 20 years.
The highlight of the evening was the WW2 Tourbillon. The watch offers a number of complications, Tourbillon, regulator, power reserve indication (5 days) and trust index all housed in a 45mm titanium case featuring a front mounted hunter lid or protective lid. Awesome watch.
The tourbillon at 6 o'clock.
The hours displayed at 12. The power reserve indicator at 9.
The trust index at 3 o'clock. The trust index indicates the period when the watch is most accurate.
The watch with the protective lid closed.
Fine craftsmanship of the hunter lid.
The beautifully made crown.
With the protective lid open.
The display back showing off the carbon fibre plates.
Very fine watch indeed. And you can see the fine detailing continue on the WW1 collection of watches.
The WW1 Argentium.
The WW1 Regulator Pink Gold.
The WW1 collection.
And the pocket watch that inspired it.
