Luxury watchmakers Maîtres du Temps are earning accolades for their timepiece Chapter Two Triple Calendar Round (TCR). This watch has been dubbed the world’s most legible triple calendar wristwatch, a high praise for the company’s watchmakers Daniel Roth and Peter Speake-Marin.
This highly refined timepiece boasts Maîtres du Temps’ signature day and month roller indications. With a big date window at the 12 o’clock and the month & day-of-the-week indications spelled out, this is the perfect timepiece for the watch lover who is constantly traveling. To ensure legibility at all times, the Chapter Two TCR comprises three anti-reflective sapphire crystals; one over the main dial and two curved crystals over the month and day rollers on the caseback. Engravings on the paddle-shaped pushers identify the month, day and big-date pusher functions.
The 56 mm x 44 mm x 15 mm octagonal case of Grade-5 titanium houses the Chapter Two TCR’s Caliber SHC01 automatic movement, which was developed by Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier in close collaboration with Peter Speake-Marin and Daniel Roth. The 332-component movement is beautifully done, with engraved text around the 22k-gold goblet-shaped rotor’s periphery reading Masters and Their Craft—A Lifelong Pursuit of Excellence (the company’s motto). The movement also features sun-ray Côtes de Genève finishing on the polished hand-beveled bridges, mirror-polished screw heads and helical spirals & perlage on the mainplate. Working at 28,800 vph (4 Hz), the Chapter Two TCR has a 50 hour power reserve. The Chapter Two TCR timepiece is finished with a black, natural rubber strap with titanium folding buckle.
“With Chapter Two TCR, Daniel Roth and Peter Speake-Marin have taken Maîtres du Temps into new and exciting territory”, founder Steven Holtzman told us. “This is the first of our timepieces to sport a more casual design. The resultant style and vitality exuded by Chapter Two TCR shows the amazing versatility of these consummate watchmakers—as well as that of Maîtres du Temps.”
