In 2004, after 4 years of additional research and development, the Quinting manufacture revolutionized once again the watch-making industry by launching the 3-hand (hours, minutes and seconds) transparent watch. This quality fashionable watch that captivates by its creative beauty and singularity is addressed to sophisticated, self-confident and stylish men and women that treat watches as defining personal style objects and not as simple timekeepers.
9 Sapphire Discs
The Cyclone is composed of nine perfectly parallel sapphire layers. With a total of six hands (hours, minutes and seconds) as well as the false second moving in the anticlockwise direction to counterbalance the synergy effects, four sapphires are mobiles and the five others are fixed.
An answer to Breguet
This time-only model features a new patented movement: the Cyclone. The Cyclone is Quinting’s answer to Abraham-Louis Breguet’s Tourbillon. The Cyclone was created to counterbalance forces of gravity and synergy based on brusque movements of the wrist, whereas the tourbillon compensated the effects of gravity for pocket watches. This is the first movement in the world with counter balancing forces invented for the second hand. The watch is composed of 186 parts and houses.
The transparency watch, as see-through and revolutionary as the Quinting Mysterious Chronograph, is available in both men’s and women’s models. Despite having a diameter slightly smaller than the Mysterious Chronograph, it respects the form of its elder and shows its luminous transparency, uniquely Quinting. Creative, audacious, flamboyant, and perfectly aesthetic, the Transparency catches the imagination of both aficionados and connoisseurs looking for something unique.
Patent n°: 2 (2004)
Breguet invented the Tourbillon for the pocket watch; it compensates the Earth attraction. For the wristwatch, Quinting developed the Cyclone, compensating not only the gravity effects but also all of the effects induced by the wrist movements. The movement is patented and 100% see-through, an exceptional characteristic only Quinting knows how to realize, that is why it is totally impossible to copy.
The Cyclone system is composed of two opposite rotations, the second sapphire turns in clockwise direction while another one turns at the same speed but in anticlockwise direction. Then, if one of the mechanisms accelerates the other one does the same and thanks to the mysterious Quinting system, forces are compensated.
