We are back with Part 3 of our new in-house tourbillon development.
With many of Tourbillon 1’s standard components coming from our K1 and K2 movements we had a major task to complete when it came to the Tourbillon cage.
This week Andi is double wristed and together with Florian they dive into the details of the cage and share with you this completely new construction.
Some stand out specs for the tourbillon cage are as followed.
Bearing construction to increases stability and make the watch a truly everyday wear
20.3 Silicon Escapement of our own geometry
Extremely lightweight at 0.29 grams. The bearing is fixed to the main bridge and the cage then nestles over it. The bearing is also very light at 0.08 grams.
Seconds indicator on the tourbillon cage filled with Swiss SuperLuminova. You can use the bridge marking at the cages 3 o'clock mark to time and for chronometer certification.
I should point out that in the original design we were going to utilize the seconds wheel for chronometer certification. By taking the movement in-house we are happy that we were able to apply the indicator as we had always hoped for on the tourbillon cage.
With the tourbillon cage complete we have now been preparing the animation. We will have a very cool video to share with you next.
We are preparing for the next pre-order and will keep you posted on the exact dates.
As always, we look forward to connecting with you in the comments.
Till next time…
