  • Summary

The tourbillon defies gravity. This most prestigious and trickiest to make of all watch complications features a rotating carriage designed to compensate for the effects of gravity on the precision of a watch. In 1892, Baume beat the absolute record for precision in the Kew Observatory chronometry competition with a tourbillon chronometer.

Mechanical hand-wound movement, tourbillon at 9 o’clock and small seconds at 6 o’clock. 43 mm red gold case, dial with “vieux panier” guilloché motif, hand-sewn alligator leather strap. Exceptional model issued in a limited, numbered edition of 10.
