Building further on the mechanical concepts already presented in other watches from the Decimal Repeater collection, the caliber of the “Tantalor” 9 centers on a LeCoultre ebauche, which has been rebuilt to a decimal repeater mechanism striking hours, 10-minute intervals and minutes. The beauty of this system is that the minute chime never strikes more than 9 times, making the repeater easy to understand and more natural in actual use.
The Decimal Repeater number 9 Tantalor retains the clear and easily readable seconds placement at 6 o’clock of the previous Decimal repeaters. The movement, case and dial have been executed without the slightest compromise, as can be expected from all wristwatches created by the Voutilainen atelier. The hand made, engine turned dial of 18-carat gold has anthracite finished soleil and clous de Paris guilloché, with Luminova filled Arabic numerals. The unusual, difficult to manufacture Tantalum case with 18-carat white gold details is created with an exceptional level of finish.
