FUTURE CALIBRE

"If you want to build the future you must have a very good understanding of the past". Wise words from Horage engineer Florian Serex and the approach needed to tackle the herculean task of creating the micro-rotor tourbillon.
 
Continual requests from our community to marry our most sought-after calibres the K2 micro-rotor and K-TOU tourbillon have been heard. With a sound understanding of our proprietary movements, we are now able to move forward in creating our fourth movement; the K-TMR Calibre.

Movement development is typically a multi-year undertaking. Thankfully our engineers and watchmakers have developed a stack of core components that help expedite future movement developments. The K-TMR will utilize much of our existing catalogue of components with a number of new parts and new architecture to be built.

The journey towards the Autark Tourbillon starts at the heart of the watch, the movement with an estimated timeline to completion of 18 months. 

 

RAISING THE BAR

The K-TMR calibre at 3.6mm it‘s not just thin, but powerful, with the goal of 72 hours of power reserve.

Through advanced gear train geometries, a full non-magnetic silicon escapement and optimized micro-rotor weight, the K-TMR will not only be the newest proprietary Swiss micro-rotor tourbillon but one of, if not the, most efficient micro-rotor tourbillon calibres available.

If you want to build the future you need to go above and beyond. Through advanced engineering, Horage is raising the industry bar and will place the K-TMR in a league of its own for years to come. 

CALIBRE COLOURS

Customization is always a request.

K-TMR calibre will allow for enthusiasts to select the colour that resonates with them most. Sporty Red, Deep Blue and Classic Anthracite are available mainplate colour options for the K-TMR.

PT-950 PLATINUM

Rewinding efficiency is at the core of any micro-rotor movement development.

To ensure maximum rewinding efficiency the Horage engineers will utilize a solid PT-950 platinum rotor.

Platinum is a dense precious metal that is also more dense than tungsten and is the premium industry option for micro-rotors. Increased material density causes the rotor to swing and initiate the rewinding of the mainspring at lower angles. This means smaller wrist movements will cause the rotor to swing and thus rewind your watches power reserve faster.

AUTARK TOURBILLON

CASE DESIGN

Cues are taken from our earlier generation Autark timepieces. The name Autark is German and translated to English means, independent. The multi-layer case construction with a target thickness of under 9mm will be sportingly stunning, but also prove to be a challenge in production with its mix of polished and brushed Grade 5 titanium surfaces.

DIALING IN THE DETAILS

Sporty, mesmerizing depth was a prime focal point for the Autark Tourbillon dial.

Setting the mood to the functions and finish of the micro-rotor tourbillon is the stamped Gradient Grey, Sunray Black or Sunray Blue dials.

At 6 o‘clock the 0.29 gram titanium flying tourbillon whirls and captivates as it makes a full rotation every 60 seconds. A blued screw in the cage references the seconds and can be marked at the 30-second mark of the minutes track that circumnavigates the dial.

Champagne gold or bright rhodium finishing on the tourbillon cage aperture creates a visual separation that complements the hour markers filled with Swiss Super LumiNova®. At 10 o‘clock on the Gradient Grey dial a power reserve indicator rounds out the chic technical finish of Autark Tourbillon.

BRACELET & MICRO ADJUSTMENT CLASP

A captivating interplay of brushed and polished surfaces

Refined detail and proportion were paramount for the integrated Grade 5 titanium bracelet. A taper from 22mm to 16mm balances between sporty and elegant.

The beautifully crafted bracelet is fastened with Horage‘s proprietary micro-adjustment buckle that offers 10mm of adjustment in 1mm increments.
