Watchmaking: Maison Biver Imagines Two New Versions of the Carillon Tourbillon

The eponymous brand created by watchmaker Jean-Claude Biver unveils two new offerings of its iconic Carillon Tourbillon Biver minute repeater watch.


One can see the desire to end a chapter in style. The Biver watchmaking house offers a final reinterpretation of its Carillon Tourbillon Biver minute repeater watch before embarking on a new project. Produced in an ultra-limited edition – fifty pieces – this prestigious timepiece takes on a new face for its last ten pieces.


The watch is an extension of personality according to Jean-Claude Biver, founder of the Swiss brand. The renowned watchmaker and his son Pierre Biver focused on this premise and today unveil two new variations of their Carillon Tourbillon minute repeater, launched just a year ago. Thanks to expert work done on the dials, these two models assert complex and distinct identities.

Two different personalities

The first model is imbued with striking purity. The guilloché work and polishing of the mother-of-pearl reveal all the beauty of the precious material used. Bold, the geometry of the dial emphasizes modernity. The second, in black obsidian, stands as a timepiece with a raw yet refined character. The contrast between the rose gold of the case and the volcanic rock of the dial gives this model a more mysterious character.





A most refined finishing touch, baguette diamond indices adorn the dials. The choice of bracelets is also an essential element of the watches’ identity. The titanium version boasts a more formal yet decidedly sporty look thanks to the elegance of the alcantara. Meanwhile, the rose gold of the second variation is enhanced by the raw aspect of the water buffalo bracelet.


A shared excellence
