Tourbillon is a mechanism that compensates the gravity of our planet. That is, the balance wheel and the trigger are mounted on a special rotating platform. The platform rotates around axis (usually, one revolution per one minute) and changes the center of gravity of the whole mechanism. When you rotate the platform, watches are fast just for the half-minute and then lose also half a minute. Thus error and is offset by the progress, which depends on the Earth’s gravity. It is worth noting that the tourbillon rotates in only one plane and performs its function well only when the Breguet Tourbillon Watches are in a vertical position, that is in your hand. However, if the watches are on the table you need to rotate them in the other plane.
While Breguet Tourbillon Watches are not widespread, so how to make this mechanism only skilled watchmakers know, and it cost dearly. Only in the late 20th century, when the clock started to be a symbol of prestige and wealth, watchmakers have paid serious attention to this mechanism. The Breguet Tourbillon Watches have become a kind of “twist” of modern watches, which in every way is exposed to view.
Since the tourbillon is the pride and ornament of clockwork, in many models it is put on display – either a transparent back cover, or directly on the dial in the aperture. Thus, Breguet tourbillon watches device is rotated in a horizontal plane, along a spherical orbit, which compensates for the force of gravity more reliably, in which position relative to the earth’s surface or turned clock.
As demonstrated by the rapid start of the third millennium, the tourbillon prepared for a long and rich life of adventures. While most watchmakers and enthusiasts of fine watchmaking continue to treat it with reverence. As an example, the master of Girard-Perregaux created a model Breguet Tourbillon Watches for visually impaired people who may not immediately notice one bridge of the tourbillon, the designers have put two bridges made of pure gold.
The most expensive and time consuming tourbillons are considered in which the rotation speed of one revolution per minute. Only the most eminent companies can boast of manufacturing such mechanisms. By this mechanism, sometimes securing the second hand.
