made from a newly developed titanium-based alloy, the 100% swiss-built component reduces the magnetic detriment by a factor over 10. it also provides effective resistance against changes in temperature, as well as shock resistance. on the face of the swatch ‘flymagic’, the new balance spring, finely finished modules and skeletonized gear train are visible through the sapphire crystal glass and automatic movement’s transparent rotor.
