Tourbillon watches at the zenith of Haute Horlogerie
In the realm of luxury watches, the tourbillon reigns supreme among Haute Horlogerie complications. -+
The tourbillon in its most exclusive iterations
The tourbillon watch is the very symbol of gravity-defying mechanical precision and manufactures with the skills to design and create them in-house are very rare – Piaget is one of them. Constantly redefining the boundaries of what is possible, the Maison de Haute Horlogerie creates tourbillon watches that feature fascinating technical wizardry. So far, they have created ultra-thin tourbillons that broke records for their slimness, tourbillons in tonneau- or cushion-shaped cases, and tourbillons with a skeleton architecture, which Piaget even went so far as to set with baguette-cut diamonds.
Relentless in its quest to ‘Always do better than necessary’, Piaget offers up the pinnacle of Haute Horlogerie complications in its most prestigious variation: the shaped flying tourbillon. Held by one single bridge, it seems to levitate in its frame as if the only thing accompanying it as it turns is the single ‘P’ of Piaget, which crowns the whole. Tourbillons left the previous limitations of Haute Horlogerie behind. Suspended at the tip of the minute hand, as if free-floating, the tourbillon flies around the dial. Now mobile, the frame becomes the stage for a double rotation.
