Chronométrie 2011 International Timing Competition:
Technotime– Gangi takes third place in the “Tourbillon” watch category.
Technotime GANGI–The test of time
On the evening of October 20th 2011, the second edition of the Chronométrie International Timing Competition celebrated technical expertise and reliability by unveiling the winners of this demanding competition. The “alternative” movement-maker Technotime took third place on the winners’ podium – in the prestigious “Tourbillon” watch category – with its hand-wound in-house made Calibre TT791.50.
Facing up to the stern trials of the Chronométrie competition is in itself a token of audacity and confidence. The audacity to expose a model to the drastic and unequivocally objective criteria of a competition that is universally acknowledged for its neutrality; and the confidence that its calibre will stand up to three batteries of shock tests and to magnetism-resistance test imposed by the Haute Ecole Arc, all validated by the Besançon Observatory and the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). This bold challenge was brilliantly taken up by first-time contestant Technotime.
As if to celebrate its 10th anniversary, Technotime – Gangiwon third place in the “Tourbillon” watch category behind GreubelForsey (1st) and Chopard (2nd). While developed with far more modest means than its peers, Calibre TT791.50 distinguished itself by the regularity of its rating. Fitted with a 60-second tourbillon and a twin barrel ensuring a five-day power reserve, this calibre proudly takes its place as one of the most resistant and accurate in Switzerland.
