Quinting’s movement stemmed from the desire to see time told through hands floating on a watch wearer’s wrist. This is made possible by superposing several thin, previously metallised, sapphire discs given an antireflection coating. It is with this very complicated system of stationary and moving sapphire discs that the watch runs.
With the exception of 7 parts, including the hands, all the components of a Quinting watch, numbering 230 and 26 sub-assemblies are manufactured exclusively for Quinting. The watches are assembled by hand at the Manufacture in Geneva, Switzerland.
Since the creation of the first chronograph released on the market (movement: Quinting Tech-1), Quinting developed 4 more 100% transparent movements: Quinting Tech-2, 4, 5 and 6.
