Innovative and unprecedented, the Opus Eleven shatters traditional watchmaking convention – literally. The groundbreaking design brings to life a new technology and construction that have never been seen before in a timepiece. Replacing traditional hands, 24 plates revolve and rotate on a complicated system of gears, mounted on an epicycloidal gear-train. Each hour, four placards spring to life, and rotate to meet at the center of the dial and display the correct hour. As the passing hour seems to explode outwards, the next begins to magically reassemble. A staggering 566 components and a total of 155 jeweled bearings are required to achieve this complex mechanical dance, making the Opus Eleven an unparalleled example of technical innovation.
