The skull is the central bridge and laser-engraved to provide contrasts between silvery and dark grey finish. It supports the pivots for the six second hands. And these six hands are the show. With each second one of the hands is moving through a ten-second period before flicking back to zero and leaving the next hand to repeat the show. A fascinating ballet according to Pierre DeRoche.
The mechanical automatic Dubois Dépraz calibre, with 58 jewels, is a renowned Manufacture of complicated movements. It powers the Pierre DeRoche TNT Royal Retro Skull. The timepiece displays the hours and minutes, seconds with retrograde function appearing on six 10-second sectors, moving retrograde hand indicator and a date window. The case is made of steel and black PVD-coated titanium.
