The Maîtres du Temps Chapter One Round features a world-first combination of complications. Crafted from 558 components, no other wristwatch offers a tourbillon with a mono-pusher column-wheel chronograph, retrograde date, and retrograde GMT, as well as a moon phase and day of the week on their own rolling bars. To activate all the functions, everything is operated via four dedicated pushers or a mono-pusher button located in the center of the crown. This setup makes operating the watch extremely easy to do, even with all of these complications.
