The art of ultra skeletonisation, devised by Hysek, initially focused on combining a tourbillon with skeletoning: outstanding examples include the Verdict Skeleton Double Tourbillon and IO Skeleton Tourbillon lines, in 2014.
Presented in the Furtif collection, this Skeleton Tourbillon has been reborn, with this new version pushing the boundaries of the concept still further. It’s one of the delightful paradoxes of the Hysek manufacture, and at the same time its great strength: each timepiece is designed to be a crowning achievement. The Furtif Skeleton Tourbillon presented at Baselworld 2016 includes a number of Hysek developments, taken to extremes never before achieved. Only the barest essentials of the movement are left, with each of the remaining components reduced to its simplest expression.
