A true stunner! This incredible platinum Breguet Tradition Fusee’ Tourbillon is like having one of the finest pieces of machinery and precision on the wrist. The multi-dimensions of the movement parts beneath the bold sapphire crystal offer depth and elegance that is difficult to rival. Retailing for about $189,700, this watch houses a hand-wound movement with tourbillon escapement (to compensate for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity) and a fuse-chain transmission. The fusee and chain transmission is connected to the barrel to maintain a constant force while the watch is running – offering superb precision, and sublime beauty to witness the chain in motion. This timepiece, which ATimelyperspective had the pleasure of wearing, working with and enjoying for a short time, has several patent applications: one for the large tourbillon resonator at 1:00; one for the titanium balance; three related to the silicon balance springs (that feature the Breguet overcoil curve in the silicon spring); one for the power reserve indicator that is fitted directly onto the barrel (at 9:00). The magnificent small off-centered dial is created in silvered 18-karat gold that has been hand-engraved on a rose engine. This is one watch to aspire to own – or to run right out and get now if you’ve got the cashola.
