The Heart of Innovation

Transparent Brilliance

Through a panoramic sapphire crystal, treated with double anti-reflective coating, the InVerto mesmerizes onlookers. The culmination of a decade of research and development is evident in the unique escapement – the core component that regulates timekeeping within the movement.

The Dual Escapement

Lederer’s natural escapement introduces two escapement wheels operating alternately. Each connected to a separate gear train and equipped with its own 10-second remontoir d’égalité. The result? Enhanced chronometer performance, stability throughout the power reserve, and prolonged mechanical longevity.

Precision Redefined

The Remontoir d’égalité

At the heart of this precision lies the remontoir d’égalité, a mechanism that accumulates energy in short intervals. This innovative approach ensures a consistent torque profile, offering precise energy delivery to the balance wheel and maintaining chronometric accuracy.

A Historical Feat

The combination of two remontoires with the escapement marks a historic milestone in watchmaking. Validated by the Besançon Observatory and the COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres). This achievement attests to the exceptional frequency stability and chronometric precision of the InVerto.

A Symphony of Craftsmanship

Aesthetic Mastery

While the visible dual seconds hands are absent, Lederer’s attention to detail is evident on the backside, allowing for COSC certification. The movement, including bridges and mainplate, is finished in black, with components meticulously crafted by hand – satin, sandblasted, and brushed surfaces, polished chamfers, frosted and hand-beveled bridges, circular graining on wheels, and hand-beveled spokes.
