Powering the watch is the HMC 804 programmed Manufacture type with an in-house twofold hairspring – the two cooperating over the equilibrium to further compensate for gravitational powers and improve both isochronism and precision. The type has 28 gems, beats at 21,600vph (3Hz) with a 72-hour power save. Capacities incorporate hours and minutes with a secluded tourbillon escapement, which permits the confine and directing organ to be handily eliminated for administration or substitution.
