Chanel - Première Flying Tourbillon

Chanel Première Flying Tourbillon

#wtbasel/ Chanel's Première Flying Tourbillon offers women the opportunity to enter into the world of high mechanical complications.

The frame of a traditional Tourbillon, which houses the suspended unit that regulates a watch (namely the balance and the spring, as well as the escapement) turns between the base of the movement, the bottom-plate and the upper bridge, which all hold this frame on its axis. It is this rotation that, by varying the positions of the regulating unit, compensate for the effects of the earth's gravitational pull.

The Flying Tourbillon is more complex because it does not have an upper bridge. This absence enhances the aesthetics of the watch so the frame appears to be revolving weightlessly. However, without the upper bridge, the Flying Tourbillon still has to be able to resist impact just as well as a traditional Tourbillon.

Consequently, the construction of the frame composed of a three-dimensional assembly of fine elements, becomes a marvel of micromechanics.
