Anthony Amato and Vincent Walther are proud to announce the launch of the TR-X Ghost, an in-house skeleton tourbillon enhanced by the unique use of Superluminova.
Widely used in the watch industry on watch dials and bezels, the luminescent material is generally used for hands, numerals and indexes. On the TR-X Ghost, it is deposited in fine lines on the corners of the skeleton in a unique process.
Patented, it was developed in collaboration with a company in St. Gallen. It literally „houses“ the Superluminova on the metal, thus highlighting the entire movement, as if it were backlit. The effect is further enhanced by the black DLC treatment of all the components.
This is a true technical feat, which required months of development during the COVID-19 period. Anthony Amato, TR-X’s founder: „It took nearly one year of research and testing to develop the process. It required a particular form of machining to ensure that the luminescent material is deposited in a perfectly clean way. We succeeded. The effect is spectacular, especially at night »
As for the sources of inspiration for the project, Anthony Amato sums them up in these terms: „The watch is the product of brainstorming and the integration of several of our team’s ideas. Vincent Walther and I share a passion about technology. We both love the world of video games and science fiction films. Car engines and engine styling are also dear to us. We consider this as an art form. All these universes collide in the watch. »
Anthony Amato goes back to the origin of the project: „It has been twelve years since I created my first activity Termitime Sàrl. To date, I have always worked as a service provider for different brands, while thinking about the development of more personal projects. I would say that this watch is the fruit of these multiple experiences, the expression of a certain maturity. In the last three years, I have also developed a concept of „sova.swis“ ambassadors for brands creating unique products with digital technology, which work well. Taking all this into consideration, there has never been a better time to take advantage of this know-how and launch our own product“.
