Centigraphe Souveraine



For the creation of the Centigraphe, things happened slightly differently than for other creations. I met Jean Todt through the ICM Foundation, and during the course of our meetings we discussed the ideal chronograph for the world of car racing.
Research I carried out over 15 years ago for the creation of an exponential chronograph quickly showed me that a chronograph with 3 hands revolving at different speeds was a good starting base. I followed up with research on chronograph pushers, on questions of the balance of power in the movement, requirements, and energy loss, and I made use of a patent registered for the Sonnerie Souveraine. I patented 2 additional innovations concerning motricity. I am proud that Jean Todt has agreed to be the Centigraphe’s Godfather.
