Technical Information
‘PREMIERE’ floating tourbillon watch The traditional tourbillon frame contains suspended watch balances, coil springs and escapement watch adjustment components. Turn between the upper bridges. This rotation constantly changes the position of the adjustment component, thereby offsetting the effect of the earth’s gravity in the vertical direction on the movement of the movement.
The structure of the floating tourbillon is more complicated. It eliminates the upper bridge, making the frame rotate as if under weight, and also makes the movement more beautiful. Although there is no upper bridge, the impact resistance of the floating tourbillon is not inferior to the traditional tourbillon. Therefore, the construction of the frame is a masterpiece of three-dimensional three-dimensional micro-machinery assembled with delicate parts.
