In the mid-19th century, wrist watches were not popular and people used to read time by pocket watches. Since pocket watches were put vertically inside the pocket or tied on the waist; the time accuracy was affected by the gravitational force impacting on the balance wheel of the pocket watch. In order to tackle this problem, in 1795 the French-Swiss watchmaker, Mr. Abraham-Louis Breguet, invented the mechanism of tourbillon. Tourbillon is a device which spiral, pallet fork and the escapement were worked on the same axis, and rotating 360 degrees, so as to reduce the time difference error caused by gravity
Due to the extreme complication of mechanism and assembly of tourbillon watch, it becomes a symbol of “the beauty of art”. Each tourbillon watch is assembled by over hundred pieces of tiny components that there are only few watch factories in the world that can produce tourbillon movements; at the same time the watch masters who acquire tourbillon assemble skill are rare. So tourbillon watch is regarded as one of the top three most sophisticated functions in the world of mechanical watches. All in all, “tourbillon” represents the meaning of “collection value” and “the taste of prestige”.
