THE TOURBILLON AND DWISS
One of the most challenging-to-make watch mechanisms, the tourbillon is a complicated movement that makes the escapement turn around its own axis, designed to counter the effects of gravity. By continuously rotating the entire balance wheel/escapement, the tourbillon averages out positional errors. Developed around 1795 and patented in 1801 by master watch-maker Abraham-Louis Breguet, the tourbillon is included in expensive watches made today by the most luxurious and traditional brands and is one of the most valued features for a collector in premium timepieces. The most virtuoso and desirable function in a watch mechanism that would once cost you 5 to 6 figures is offered by DWISS for much, much less.
