In 1770, he came to the outskirts of Geneva and founded MANUFACTURE ROYALE, which produced timepieces and mechanical movements for the nobles and kings of the European continent; and this is exactly how he opposed the Catholic dictatorship of the time, sought monarchs, and nourished nations Is an important tool to create ‘utopia’. MANUFACTURE ROYALE is located in Vallorbe, in the meditation mountainous region of Switzerland. It has built up a good reputation for its excellent watchmaking skills and unique secrets. Following the Swiss tradition of craftsmanship and aesthetics, it has designed and manufactured two mechanical movements with large complex functions.

Floating Tourbillon Movement
Since its inception, MANUFACTURE ROYALE has been adhering to the Swiss tradition of fine watchmaking, independently designing, manufacturing and decorating the movements used in its watches. The new MR03 movement used in 1770 watches is no exception. Brand engineers and watchmakers from Designed from the ground up, it successfully created a floating tourbillon that represents the top level of watchmaking skills. Around 1800, Abraham-Louis Breguet invented a tourbillon system in order to improve the timing performance of the movement, which aims to reduce the travel time error through an escapement that can rotate. The tourbillon is usually placed between two bridges. However, the principle of the floating tourbillon is more complicated and the structure is more sophisticated. There is only one connection point with the movement body. This exquisite structure allows you to see the running escapement and its beautifully decorated components at a glance. The escapement is the core component of the watch, and it determines the accuracy of the travel time. The escapement inside this new movement embodies cutting-edge innovations. The escapement fork and escape wheel are made of silicon. Silicon material can not only isolate the heat source, but also resist the interference of magnetic field, thus greatly improving the performance of the movement. In addition, the movement is equipped with a screw balance and a flat balance spring. The floating tourbillon is set at the asymmetrical 7 o’clock position and rotates once every 60 seconds. This unusual design adds a unique visual tension to the entire timepiece. In addition to the hour and minute display, the 1770 is also equipped with a power reserve display, which has a power reserve of up to four and a half days, or 108 hours. The MR03 movement is a manual winding mechanical movement and consists of 208 components.
Beautifully decorated by hand
MANUFACTURE ROYALE’s fine watchmaking art is also reflected in the craftsman’s attention to detail, each piece is hand-polished and decorated. Each movement not only has excellent technical performance, but also each component has a pleasing beauty. The bridge and plywood elements of the MR03 movement are sandblasted, hand-chamfered, polished, satin-finished or rounded, and the inner and outer edges are brushed. The back of the movement is hand-engraved with a 2.4mm wide Geneva wave. All these decorations sublime the aesthetics of the movement. The movement reflects a shining light, and the different surface decoration is like a psychedelic visual feast.
Pure and flawless dial
This dial reproduces the brand’s visual style for centuries. MANUFACTURE ROYALE In the past, the movement was usually highlighted on the dial. However, this dial has a design that completely covers the movement. An open window only at 7 o’clock makes it easy to appreciate the delicate floating tourbillon. Depending on the model, it is equipped with a silver-toned milky and smoky dial and is embellished with diamond edging and hand-polished hour markers. The texture of the center of the surface is uniform, without any ornaments, and you can enjoy the subtle color and texture of the dial. ‘MANUFACTURE ROYALE 1770’ is engraved around the floating tourbillon. The second style has a dark grey skeleton dial with different profile designs. The visual effect is more prominent, the complexity level shows the wonderful technology, and the movement is seen secretly. Sword-shaped hands are partially satin-finished and partly polished to ensure legibility.
The redesigned 1770 watch has rounded lines, with both simplicity and modernity. Its high-end watch movement is exclusively developed and manufactured by the brand, equipped with an exquisite floating tourbillon.
MANUFACTURE ROYALE has always been known for its complicated and exquisite decoration craftsmanship, and the brand style is impressive. A large number of parts are handmade and decorated, and follow certain assembly principles: the movement is placed in the case, and the case itself is also placed in a specific structure, sometimes even a movable structure. This craft is the masterpiece of MANUFACTURE ROYALE, and it is used to the fullest extent in the case of the 1770 watch. The case is equipped with two appropriately sized bezels that surround the entire body. The outer frame that extends to the outer end is fixed by screws that have both visual and functional properties, and is bent slightly inward to form the lugs. The overall lines are round and soft, which locks the sight tightly. The curved mirror and elliptical bezel slightly tilt outward to form the edge. The outer edge surrounded by the outer frame is sunken inward. The polished crown is engraved with the ‘MR’ mark. The beauty of the movement can be viewed through the open case back. The case of the 1770 watch is polished, brushed or satin-finished. It is designed and decorated by the world-renowned watchmaker Eric Giroud.
