A Tourbillon (“whirlwind” in French) movement is another step towards
perfect mechanical accuracy. Invented in 1795 by Abraham-Louis
Breguet; the principles and thinking behind the movement have rarely
been approximated -let alone equalled- in the 200 years since it’s
conception. Kristian Kiel is proud to offer you a modern version that
is affordable and is something that you will be very proud to wear on
your wrist.

It consists of a regulating mechanism (balance wheel hairspring) and a
lever escapement which makes one rotation in one minute. It eliminates
effects of friction and Earth’s gravity. When a watch escapement is in
vertical position the Earth’s gravity either accelerates or slows the
balance movement causing a rate gain or loss. The Flying Tourbillon
compensates the “gravity induced” gain or loss with its mobile
carriage.

Among the World’s most gifted watchmakers, only a select few are
capable of manufacturing a Tourbillon.

The Flying Tourbillon is mounted in one side only, with no supporting
bar, allowing better visibility through the cut-out window at 6. It
also has two “complexities” one is a “day phase” window at 3 and the
other is a 24hr clock at 9 that can be adjusted to show anther time
zone.

The case is manufactured all in marine grade stainless steel and Gold
plated finishing. The watch face and back is made of Sapphire glass
making it scratch resistant. Sophisticated and yet “up to date” the
Kristian Kiel Tourbillon is completed with a high quality leather
strap. It’s precision and complexity in the design suits a person who
appreciates the intricacies of watch mechanisms.
