The calibre has just 164 components and is fully hand-decorated. Nothing is left to chance in achieving its aesthetic balance. The barrel is located at 7 o’clock, the tourbillon at 11 o’clock.

On the technical side, Hysek has retained most of the properties of the original manufacture movement HW12. The HW14 manual wind calibre dispenses with the need for an oscillating weight – another unwelcome encumbrance when it comes to the IO Skeleton Tourbillon.

One of the manufacture’s iconic characteristics, the asymmetrical layout contributes here to the IO’s style being both unique in watchmaking and overwhelmingly distinctive; it could only be a Hysek. Aficionados of fine watchmaking will note the powerful expression of creativity, while connoisseurs of the brand’s early days will instantly recognise its secret signature.

In addition to these exclusive, proprietary touches, Hysek has applied one of its most emblematic finishes to its in-house HW14 calibre, the Rose des Vents. The manufacture is one of the few remaining firms to craft this ‘compass rose’ finish.
