At Julien Coudray 1518, the quest for quality takes the form of a refined association between art, method and material. Hence a number of components - wheels and escapements, to mention but a few – are entirely redesigned. Hence they are different from existing calibres on the market. Furthermore, Julien Coudray 1518 movements are made from solid gold or 950 platinum, something extremely rare in Haute Horlogerie, which considerably distinguishes the Manufacture from its current market competitors. The main plate alone requires many hours of programming and drawing, nearly 160 machining tools made in-house, half of which are custom-made by hand, and according to the model, between 200 and 500 operations, and as many checks. All our timepieces contain the JC1518 in-house calibre.
