New TNT Skull // Pierre DeRoche







Playing with light and shade
The inherently rebellious, unique and technical TNT Royal Retro Skull reflects the highly contemporary trend for personalisation, while preserving all the original qualities of its Royal Retro movement. The world’s only calibre capable of housing six retrograde seconds mechanisms stages a fascinating ballet of six hands dancing across ten-second periods that instantly draws the gaze and positions this timepiece firmly in the category of “showtime” complications. In the notable absence of a dial, its broad and eminently visible central bridge provides unlimited space for brand aficionados to make their individual model even more exclusive and personal. On this first limited-edition interpretation, the hexagonal central going train bridge is adorned with a skull motif that has become a classic theme in contemporary watchmaking. A distinctive laser-engraving technique creates a striking play on light and shade exploring the many nuances of grey. Contrasting shades outline the shape of the skull using the “light trapping” method, offering a fascinating means of marrying metal with this promising form of expertise. 


Movement
Mechanical automatic, exclusive Dubois Dépraz calibre, 58 jewels. Decorated and engraved oscillating weight. Central bridge, 6 chamfered and satin-finished seconds bridges. Minute wheel with Pierre DeRoche logo. Hands affixed by a transversal pin. 6 gear-driven retrograde seconds hands with strip-spring return. The black zones of the skull-shaped central bridge are formed using the “light trapping” method, which consists in laser-engraving a motif by creating an engraving background featuring an irregular topography that prevents light from penetrating its surface.

Rest In Peace HUDDY COMBS SPEAKS ON DIPSET REUNION

RIP, HUDDY!

Harlem world rapper Huddy Combs (no relation to Diddy) died yesterday in a car accident. Apparently he was driving on the George Washington Bridge with a female and his car hit a tractor trailer truck. He was dead at the scene of the accident. Diddy tweeted about it too. From what I heard, Huddy was a best friend of Cam and Mase from back in the days. He was the dude that got Cam’ron to the hospital when he got shot in 2005. He was also a rapper in Mase’s short lived group Harlem World. RIP.

”My man here saved my life,” -Cam'ron said.
