Andreas Strehler has released his newest addition to the Sauterelle collection. The series began appearing in 2013, with previous entries including the lovely moon-phase a Lune Perpetuelle.
Strehler’s latest is the Sauterelle à Heure Mondialele. One of the features of the original 2013 Sauterelle timepiece was its patented rémontoir d’égalité mechanism, which creates constant force to the escapement in order to provide superior accuracy. The new Sauterelle à Heure Mondialele features this unique mechanism along with new, practical travel time functions viewable via the caseback.
The Sauterelle à Heure Mondialele is available in either a platinum or 18k red gold case, and comes with either a blue or silver dial. It measures in at 41mm and features a tonneau shape.
One of the interesting cosmetic flourishes is the 3D globe situated at the 8 o’clock that shows the view from the North Pole, with a line through the GMT time zone in order to help the user set the second time zone. The globe makes a full rotation every 24 hours and also doubles as a day/night indicator.
The platinum cased Sauterelle à Heure Mondialele is priced at $130,500, while the 18k red gold version runs a little under $117,000.
