Total production: 10 pieces, delivered 2022

The 20.09 Tourbillon is a special subscription piece that combines the best of various processes we've developed - Mosaic, HyCeram embedded sapphire, Sapphire crystal hands, bicolour bridges - and takes our partnership with Schwarz Etienne even further.

It is powered by the Cal. TSE.M1, a unique, skeletonised execution of Schwarz Etienne's flying tourbillon movement which reverses the movement so the barrel, micro-rotor, flying tourbillon and timekeeping hands are all visible from the dial side. The 20.09 also features our first 22mm bracelet with curved ends and quick release pins.

This guide applies to the following watches/ variants:

  • 20.09 TOURBILLON

Winding & power reserve:

  • The 20.09 Tourbillon is equipped with a self/automatic winding Schwarz-Etienne TSE.M1 movement.
  • This movement has a ~72 hour power reserve when fully wound.
  • If worn daily and the wearer is sufficiently active, the watch will stay wound and run indefinitely.
  • If the power reserve is depleted, please hand wind the watch with 20-30 turns of the crown and give it a light shake to restart.
  • Simply giving the watch a light shake and wearing it is not sufficient to bring the watch up to a full or nearly full state of wind.

Setting the time:

The crown has two positions:

  • The first position (pushed all the way in) is where the crown should be for wearing and to ensure water resistance. This position is also the hand winding position.
  • The second position (one click out) is the setting of hour and minute hands. Once set, please push the crown back in for regular wearing and to ensure water resistance.

Other useful information:

  • The best way to clean the watch is with a soft, clean and damp cloth. We strongly discourage the use of any cleaning agents or solutions.
  • We use different formulations and techniques to apply lume on the dials, hands, crystal and other components etc. This results in a slight difference in the peak brightness and length of luminesence between the two. This is normal.
  • Modern luminous material requires charging to work effectively. Lume can be charged with direct exposure to bright sunlight or a strong light source such as a LED torch. The stronger the light source, the faster the lume charges.
