The Competentia 1515 watch comes in 18K solid gold, yellow gold 2N, rose gold 4N, grey gold Pd125 or platinum Pt950 and is produced in limited series of 15 pieces per model.
The manual winding Calibre JC 1515, crafted entirely out of solid gold or platinum, comprises a power reserve (55 hours), a service interval indicator, a day/night indicator and a minute tourbillon. However, it doesn’t exceed 5 mm in height.
All the components are handmade and decorated by hand, with the back engraved with Renaissance-inspired map of French gardens.
The dial is made of 11 pieces of enamel. The decoration of the central disc is the result of the challenging and labour-intensive technique of ‘plique-à-jour’ enamel. This creates translucent enamel that enables to see the movement through the dial. The watch index – referring to the modern vision of 16th century watchmakers – is made of enamel and gold.
After 4 years of running, the watch service interval indicator gradually reveals the design of an oil drop – crafted in gold enamel – indicating it’s time for maintenance.
The watch is fitted with an alligator strap, hand-stitched and finished, and equipped with an ardillon buckle in 18K solid gold or in Platinum Pt950 with engraved pictogram.
