It is the first clock designed and made to the exacting standards and conventions of the Haute Horlogerie and required 6,571 hours of development, 5,451 components and 3,952 hours of assembly and adjustment. It measures 350 x 250 x 130 cm, weighing in at 1,913 kg.
This unique timepiece is a gift from Richard Mille and the Canton of Jura to the Province of Quebec, symbolizing the particular significance of relations between the French-speaking countries, strengthening the ties that link the Republic and Canton of Jura with the Province of Quebec.
The Mayor of Quebec Mr. Régis Labeaume, Dominique Guenat and Richard Mille were all in attendance at the official presentation of the Richard Mille clock to Quebec City.
