Tourbillon Mystère

Tourbillon Mystère

With its almost magical appearance, the Tourbillon Mystère, also known as the “flying tourbillon”, attracts inquisitive glances. Rather than being housed in a cage, the escapement is mounted and turns on a bearing on one side only. It is set against a deep black background, creating the illusion that the complex mechanism is floating in the dial. The tourbillon rotates around its own axis once every 60 seconds to counteract the pull of gravity on any disequilibrium in the balance wheel that would adversely affect the watch’s rate and accuracy.
