Steinway & Sons Seconde Metronomique Watch
The Seconde Metronomique timepiece has a small metronome on the dial that "beats" each second, moving from side to side. It is unclear as to the audible nature of the complication, but it is an interesting feature and appropriate for the theme of the timepiece. It is part of the hand-wound caliber C60 mechanical movement that has a power reserve of 38 hours. Behind the metronome hand is a revolving gear with a lyre image in it, along with another lyre image on the deeply engraved guilloche gold and enamel dial.
The watch case is 43mm tall by 26mm wide and 10mm thick. The Steinway & Sonds Second Metronomique is part of a limited edition of just 300 pieces. This will be segmented in 100 pieces in either yellow, rose or white 18k gold cases. Certainly an interesting piece for music lover or instrument collectors.
