12th Art The Millennium Watch Book

A collection that visits the tourbillon*

After the successful first edition of The Millennium Watch Book published last year, and which provided a comprehensive range information on third millennium watchmaking to date, the eponymous collection is devoting its 2021 volume to the tourbillon. A brilliant invention devised 22 decades ago by AbrahamLouis Breguet, the tourbillon has really taken off in the world of haute horlogerie over the past two decades, stimulating creativity, mechanical challenges and the wildest technical records, as well as collectors’ desires. What better way to start a collection of ten thematic watchmaking books (planned until 2030!) than this watchmaking Everest that so many brands have attempted to scale with varying degrees of success? Fifteen specialists have lent their expertise and penmanship to recounting this fabulous tourbillon-themed horological adventure, a must-read for all devotees of exceptional watches.
