Bianchet tourbillon watches are composed of highly complex parts and advanced materials requiring high-precision machines and perfect skills.
The openwork architecture of the movement takes the center stage and sublimates the cutting-edge micro-mechanics.
Bianchet has developed exclusive materials such as Titanium-Dust-High-Density-Carbon, a composite of carbon fibres with titanium powder made of circa 500 compressed layers of 0.03mm thick carbon fibres, infused with titanium powder between every two layers.
The result is a highly resistant and light material offering the properties of a high-tech composite with the nobility of a precious metal.
Invented by Cartier in 1906, the tonneau case was conceived to be both elegant and comfortable. A very innovative shape at the time, it still represents the epitome of class and sophistication.
By adding pure lines and harmonious proportions underlined by refined colour accents, Bianchet creates a watch case that is both sophisticated and sporty.
The sleek, unadorned bezel of the barrel case blends seamlessly with the case middle, enhancing its smooth lines and discreet lugs, which give it a modern elegant look.
The architecture of the skeleton movement is entirely made of Grade 5 Titanium, including the bridges of the tourbillon cage, creating a strong, resistant, non-magnetic structure.
One of the few curved tonneau-shaped carbon watches capable of withstanding a pressure of 10ATM (100 metres of water depth) and shocks of 5000G, the Flying Tourbillon Grande Date B1.618 has been designed to be versatile and endorsed during sports and water activities.
