— The HMS Ten celebrates the 10th anniversary of Romain Gauthier Fake Watches UK.
The dial of HMS Ten is a harmonious composition of circles and arcs. Inside the chapter ring, there is the smoothly finished, off-centre hours-minutes subdial bearing the R. Gauthier logo and flanked either side by a Clous de Paris.
On the lower portion of the subdial, sectorial seconds allows visual access to the movement below, with the balance wheel and distinctive gear driving the seconds on show. The three parts of the dial are fixed invisibly from beneath, lending clarity and classicism to the displays.
“With HMS Ten, supreme legibility was paramount,” says Romain Gauthier. “My idea was to have a dial with completely unobstructed views. Once the eye is drawn to the hour-minute subdial, it is then naturally attracted to the sectorial seconds. Nothing disturbs the wearer’s reading of the time. Such a timeless, elegant dial design came to me naturally because I was born in the heart of Swiss Rolex replica watchmaking, the Vallée de Joux, and was constantly exposed to classic, historical dial design as I grew up there.”
The 41mm diameter case is distinguished by pure, clean, unbroken lines around its full perimeter. The Rolex replica watches features an ergonomic flat caseback crown, increasing winding efficiency while reducing wear and stress on components. The Vallée de Joux style finger bridges catch both the light and the eye with their seductive polished curves. The bespoke gear wheels feature circular arms providing both elegance and strength; the polished screw heads bear a unique S-slot, enabling more torque to be applied and aesthetic.
The large movement bridge at the top has a cut-out revealing some of the mainspring barrel and ratchet click. The cut-out features four highly polished, sharp internal bevelled angles – this anglage is the hallmark of superlative hand finishing since machines are not yet capable of milling and polishing sharp internal angles.
All components are designed, developed and manufacture by Romain Gauthier except for the mainspring, balance spring and jewels. The HMS Ten is available in three limited editions of 10 pieces each: platinum case/blue dial, white gold case/champagne dial and red gold case/anthracite dial.
