The present Univers model was based on the 1770 Voltige, however, the dial has the addition of the Voltaire quote: “I feel awkward with this universe, and I can hardly imagine that this clockwork exists without a clockmaker.” In 2017, Manufacture Royale created “The Enlightened Society”, an exclusive club for collectors who already owned the MR brand. The 1770 Voltige Univers was reserved for a very few clients and is no longer in production. The present watch number 1 was originally sold to a client in Singapore. In excellent original condition, the present lot provides the opportunity to own a watch, which is frmly rooted both in the past and present and as Voltaire stated “In all the arts, the greatest pleasures are reserved for the connoisseurs”.
