Maitre du Temps Chapter two watch

 Maitre du Temps Chapter two watch combines 2 different functions (big date and triple calendar) along with great aesthetics highlighted by diamonds, on to this common platform. Despite all complications within its core movement, reading time didn’t get much easier than this, especially for the specific genre of watches.
Housed in an 18K gold casing, the outer lining is adorned with a total of 205 sparkling white diamonds, which highlight more prominently the 16mm thickness, 42 mm width, and 52mm length of the unit. In fact this decoration seems to go perfectly well with the other option which includes Rose Gold with white leather strapping, or the white gold with the chocolate brown option. The main dial however, features a white base on which a black circular path is marked, with prominent white roman numerals for the hours. Again, the base color of this silver toned dial can be chosen either in white or simply chocolate brown.

The rollers on the upper and lower end of the main dial indicate the month and day, whereas the particular date would be visible on the 12 ‘o’clock slot. There also is a smaller second’s dial at the 6 ‘o’ clock slot. Turning the watch over, the exposed skeleton of the movement comes to view, which has been protected with transparent sapphire crystal, just the frontier dial. Inside this cage, is the Automatic movement which has 338 components, out of which 32 are precious jewels. The vibration rate is pegged at 28,800 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve of 50 hours.
The only unknown aspects of this timepiece is the exact price, but estimates put it between $54,870- $164,611 a piece, but not with surety. Also no word as yet, if it is a limited edition just like the case for the Chapter One watch. But, surely Peter Speake Marin and Daniel Roth deserve the kudos for their creation.
