Official description

Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon offers an original reading of time that is unique in the field of horological complications.

The flight of a lepidopteran can cause a flutter. While complex in terms of its construction, the new Octo Roma Central Tourbillon Papillon offers infinite simplicity in the reading of the hours and minutes.

A metaphor inspired by the flight of the butterfly and unique in the world of Haute Horlogerie, this mechanism carries two independent retractable diamond-shaped hands positioned on a supporting disc. Each runs in turn along a 180-degree semi-circular minute track. While the jumping hour appears in the window located at 12 o’clock, the minutes are indicated successively by each of the two hands. The first is positioned on the segment and thus signals the progression of the minutes, while the other remains in a retracted position throughout the path of the disc carrying them.
