In celebration of the Loy Krathong festival, Ateliers deMonaco has created a brand new piece known as the Tourbillon – WAT ARUN.

This temple has been named after Aruna, the Indian God of Dawn. It’s a illustration of Mount Meru, the iconic illustration of the middle of the world in Buddhist Cosmology. In Thailand, there are over 31’200 Buddhist temples and the Wat Arun temple is probably the most well-known one, because of its recognisable design. The design could be very totally different from the opposite temples; it’s partly made with tiny items of colored glass and Chinese porcelain positioned delicately into intricate patterns.
The dial of the Tourbillon Wat Arun required a unprecedented 200 hours of work. It’s composed of three layers of solid 18K White gold, all applied by hand and a Tourbillon opening which naturally draws attention to this mechanical marvel. Probably the most lovely half is the hand-engraved dial exhibiting the Wat Arun temple, as iconic as our distinctive timepieces. We are able to distinguish across the temple’s engraving the four-corner prang of Wat Arun, which home image of the guardian gods, Nayu, gods of the 4 direction.
The hand-engraved particulars give this watch its personal private touch and makes it a one of-a-kind creation. This has been realised by Bernad Ditzof, our master engraver, which skills are incomparable and make him one of many few folks on the planet that may grasp such dexterity and technique.
This art-piece is cased-up in an 18 carats white gold polished case contrasting with the brushed white gold dial. The back and front are made from sapphire crystal exposing the finest details of the patented “eXtreme Precision 1 minute” tourbillon and its hand-engraved 22K solid gold rotor. This tourbillon movement is understood to be probably the most precise tourbillon movement on the planet with a tolerance between 0-2 seconds per 24 hours. The calibre is adorned with 29 jewels and a sapphire tourbillon bridge.
The timepiece is completed with a hand-stitched alligator leather-based strap and comes with an 18 carats white gold folding buckle. This watch is a timeless piece of art which can endure perpetually like the fantastic thing about the Wat Arun temple.
