2021 celebrates the 20 years of the automatic Octa Calibre 1300 in all its forms.
This latest opus is the ultimate expression. An automaton, working solely off the Octa movement’s mainspring, was no easy task.
The minutes are read by rotating disk at the 12 o’clock position, while the mobile fingers appear or disappear instantaneously to display the hour according to their positions.
The fingers are inspired from a mechanical hand created by Ambroise Paré (1509-1590), the father of modern surgery.
