ANTOINE MARTIN - SLOW RUNNER

A NEW INTERPRETATION OF TIME - DECELERATING TIME

Slow Runner

Already with the previous model: The Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar, the master watchmaker Antoine Martin and his team used all his experience and remained true to its philosophy of "slow time".

Slow Runner

For 2013 Antoine Martin presents the world´s largest and slowest balance with 7,200 beats per hour: The Slow Runner, this exceptional watch is available with a 18k pink gold or Stainless steel case.

Presentwatch invites you to experience this completely different feeling of watchmaking.

Slow Runner

Technically, the Slow Runner with a rhythm of 7,200 beats per hour, is the equivalent of 1 hertz, it means that the second hand makes two steps per second. And in addition to the balance, one sees only the barrel, which guarantees the power reserve of at least four days. This manufacture movement is a tribute to authentic time.

SLOW RUNNER

A new concept: Decelerating time. An original idea from the Manufacture Antoine Martin. Drastically reducing the frequency to 7,200 semi-oscillations (vibrations) per hour, meaning 1 Hz, while preserving the qualities of a high-precision watch. On the practical side, the escapement and balance-spring are made of silicon. One essential point is that the giant 24mm diameter balance generates so much kinetic energy that it cannot be disturbed. Moreover, the balance features two gold adjustment screws, the balance rim is in grade 3 titanium, and the ultra-precise balance-spring production process enabled watchmakers to optimise its inner point of attachment and its curve. All these technical details serve just one mission: that of slowing time down in order to sublimate it.
