— The Bulgari Papillon Heure Sautante model reinterprets the ingenious patented minutes indication system.
This Papillon mechanism, a metaphor inspired by the flight of the butterfly, is unique in the world of Haute Horlogerie and bears two independent, retractable, diamond-shaped hands on a supporting disc. Each one alternately sweeps over a graduated minutes scale spread over a 180-degree half circle. The minutes are successively indicated by each of the two hands.
The first is positioned on the segment and thus signals the progression of the minutes, while the second one remains ‘off-duty’ in retracted position and thus invisible throughout the rotation of the disc bearing them.
When the first hand reaches the 55th minute on the display segment, the other hand progressively completes a quarter turn to move into a position parallel to the first one on the 00 minutes marker. The first hand then moves into its retracted position for the following 55 minutes.
