Bianchet presents its first in-house flying tourbillon movement.
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 horological excellence to this day.
Crafted from grade 5 titanium including the bridges of the tourbillon cage, every movement is elegantly decorated, then finished by hand, and assembled in Bianchet's atelier in Switzerland.
As if suspended in the air, the flying tourbillon cage rotates without any visible bridge, allowing a clear view of this engineering marvel.
Guided by the craftsman's gesture, hand-bevelling which is particularly difficult to achieve on titanium, gives life to the contours of the bridges and sublimates the beauty of the components.
The art of Haute Horlogerie, mainly executed by hand, requires complete undivided attention. A suspended moment in time when the passion of the creator transfers to the object to convey the highest level of quality.
