Long Description:
'L’horloge monumentale réalisée en un seul exemplaire par Richard Mille a été offerte par la République et Canton du Jura, en Suisse, pour le 400e anniversaire de Québec.
Plus de six années de travail et le savoir-faire d’une centaine de spécialistes ont été nécessaires pour la réalisation de cette horloge hors norme, tant par sa taille que par la complexité de son mécanisme.
L’horloge est 40000 fois plus lourde qu’une montre mécanique standard et pourtant d’une précision extraordinaire. Ses composants ont été taillés dans des matériaux nobles, tels le titane, le rubis, le saphir et l’aluminium, dans le respect des exigences de la très haute horlogerie.'
