Niura : an object of perfection by Giberg Haute Horlogerie
Giberg Haute-Horlogerie produced its first timepiece: Niura. Inspired by the magic of the tales of One Thousand and One Nights, this is an object of perfection. To achieve this, a great deal of patience and work with a very talented watchmaker was required. The detailed thought that went into the specificity of the mechanism has resulted in a very light tourbillon. It is through such an out of the ordinary movement that Giberg stays true to its philosophy of being unique.

A time-keeper and a flying tourbillon
Andreas and his staff at Giberg Haute-Horlogerie create watches that combine fine watchmaking with sculptural art. With a manual-winding mechanical movement, the double-barrel Trilevis 6118 flying tourbillon offers maximum precision. Located at 6 o’clock, this bearing movement is fed by two barrels at 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock, providing the watch with a power reserve of 72 hours. The 2,156 diamonds (8.7 carats) and76 rubies set in 5N red gold render this piece majestic. The dial and caseback in anti-reflective sapphire offer a visual of rare clarity. These bursts of light express the sweet magic of Scheherazade’s stories.
Case and teardrops in diamonds
The 35 mm diameter case is slipped into the centre of a 47 x 97 mm diameter structure. A ruby is placed on the right hand side as a cabochon crown. On the left is a second, decorative crown to create a delicately perfect symmetry. The case pivots on moving, studded hinges. These are designed to ensure the watch encircles the wrist of any wearer perfectly. Diamond-studded teardrops link the edges of the case to the lizard leather strap. This subtle designer detail of fine watchmaking elevates the object to the ultimate in femininity.
