The Caliber 9600 signifies DUKE's debut movement, introducing the Clarity Tourbillon and the Invisible Rotor, revolutionizing automatic watches.

With both complications DUKE achieved to create a strong distinctive watch movement limited to only 8 examples. All DUKE timepieces are entirely decorated by hand.

The dial testifies sobriety and attention to detail. Made of sapphire,

It is microblasted then hand painted to make it opaque and avoid mirror effect. The DUKE signature appliques at their center are in 18k White Gold, each letter delicately placed one after the other by hand.
The complex hands, openworked, and the chapter ring, featuring a discreet minute track, are both in

mirror polished 18k White Gold.
