    The "Trio" is the third model of the "Future Antérieur" or "Future Past" collection, its curved rectangular case housing a specifically designed automatic movement with patented "Mysterious" oscillating weight. The "Grande Date" is displayed through two small riveted portholes, its mechanism consists of more than 50 parts and is designed to allow the quick setting of the date through the crown. Date and time setting are totally independent, adjusting the hour is not interfering with the date.
