The different models of the Répétition Squelette are all together a homage to one of the oldest craftmenships in Germany and Europe: The arts of enfgraving and engine turning (Guilloch).
Today, however, only a few specialists can be found who still master these old crafts. NIVREL makes theses old techniques come alive in the Répétition Squelette model techniques. In these watches, no less than three different kinds of skelettonizations and engravings can be found next to the watchmakers craftmenship itself: The bridges and blanks are hand-engraved and hand-skelettonized. The prominent star wheel above the center of the movement (it covers the hour indication of the repeater mechanism) is also hand-engraved. The hour wheels and transmission wheels of the repeater are finished with a NIVREL specialty: a very unique guilloche called Beam and Waves.
The present model shows the Repetiton Squelette from the series Skeletonization. All models of this series show hand-skeletonized movements, with hand-made movement bridges, partly rhodinized and made of 18 ct. rose gold or 18 ct. palladium / white gold.
