Tribute to a genius

Glashütte Original

Tradition-rich whirlwind

As fascinating as it is to see a tourbillon carriage rotate, its true purpose was to improve accuracy. The “whirlwind” opposes the force of gravity continuously; the entire oscillation and escapement system rotates on its own axis within the space of a minute.

A masterful achievement in watchmaking

Thanks to its cantilevered mounting, the tourbillon’s rotating carriage is relieved of pressure and can be executed in a very delicate form – it weighs less than half a gram. At once a masterpiece of watchmaking and a visual delight, it remains today one of the most challenging of complications.
