FLYING TOURBILLON GRANDE DATE B1.618
Born to defy gravity, the tourbillon mechanism invented by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1795 is considered the most prestigious Haute Horlogerie complication.
This complex mechanism requires a high level of expertise and precision to construct, and remains a symbol of
to this day.
A vaulting challenge, Bianchet´s flying tourbillon brings the complication to new highs. As if suspended in the air, the titanium cage rotates without any visible bridge, allowing a clear view of this engineering marvel.
The ball-bearing mechanism, which allows the tourbillon to appear to float in the air, ensures that the tourbillon cage rotates with unparalleled smoothness and precision. At the same time, the movement adjustment to six positions ensures that it keeps time accurately no matter how it is positioned on the wrist.
A skeleton Grande Date complication displays the date in a format that is both artful and easy to read, and at the same time, reveals the intricacies of the calendar function.
The magic of Bianchet’s flying tourbillon comes from its unique architecture, based on the Fibonacci sequence and the flowing lines of the golden number.
