With its perfectly choreographed dance of six retrograde hands, the TNT Royal is an endless source of fascination. Not content with staging a complication that is unique in the world, it now explores the field of futuristic materials by introducing a bezel in itr²®.
This totally hypoallergenic composite material is six times lighter than steel and four times lighter than titanium. Created from carbon nanotubes, itr²® is transparent. Once charged with ceramic or carbon particles, it turns white or black as desired. Over and above its excellent technical performances, itr²® provides a unique visual effect, echoed by the six seconds bridges and the central bridge alternately draped in sparkling white by means of a stabilized silver coating, or in black.

Central bridge and 6 chamfered, satin-finished seconds bridges white or black galvanic bath treatment. Minute-wheel with Pierre DeRoche logo.
