The Balancier S is an aesthetic sibling to the GMT Sport, adopting
design elements from that movement and then building them into the new
Balancier caliber, reimagined for this new case style. The dial displays
similar items to previous Balancier models, which feature hours,
minutes, and seconds plus a power reserve indication. But the layout and
the shapes of the structure make it so dramatically different.
The biggest structural change puts the balance and escapement on a plate 30 degrees from parallel with the movement along with the running seconds dial, making the movement appear as if it was hewn from stone instead of machined in a milling center. We’ll get back to the variety of new shapes in a moment, but I want to highlight the evolution that the new sport case offers with details found on many other of the brand’s models.
