On the way to the most secret of planets

NASA's Kepler spacecraft discovered in 2006 the darkest planet ever. It is some 750 light years away from us in the direction of the constellation Draco. This gigantic world, the size of Jupiter, reflects less than 1% of its sunlight. Which makes it the darkest territory any planet or moon seen so far.

TrES-2b, also known as Kepler-1b, is blacker than charcoal and it's pretty damn hot there (980 degrees Celsius). Which explains its faint red glow.

It is towards this obscure country that the Black Titanium model takes you.

The dial of each LAB-ONE model is made up of 6 meticulously superimposed layers. The fine decorated sapphire crystal is complemented by a multitude of parts to create an impression of depth. It's like borrowing a wormhole into the mechanical dimension of the watch.

The titanium grid reproduces the canvas of space-time. It’s a vortex, a kind of spiral or whirlwind, that takes you into the dark. The dial, the case, the bracelet, everything is black here, you are ready to go to the darkest of all the planets.

Every time a correction is made, the index or barrel circuit will light up so you can see and understand what's going on.

Where does this shade come from?

It's a mystery as to what makes this planet so dark. Chances are, this is a completely unknown chemical. It is this black that we wanted to reproduce, by coloring the titanium of the watch case.

Thanks to a nanotechnological treatment, which uses plasmas of materials, we have modified titanium, to make it an even more resistant material.  Titanium properties have been altered, causing it to take on that impenetrable black hue.

The titanium guarantees this LAB-ONE model hardness, great resistance to impact, chemicals and corrosion while offering incredible lightness.
