Jaeger-LeCoultre was the first horological company to break the ice in the field. It was proud to introduce its novel Gyrotourbillon 1 watch, with the in-house tourbillon spinning on two axis instead of the conventional one. The Jaeger-LeCoultre company created a special cage for the tourbillon to be located in, while spinning in two directions. This extremely complicated construction represents a genuine breakthrough made by the brand in 2005.
The Gyrotourbillon 1 watch was included in a special edition restricted to just 75 items. Every single piece was sculptured in platinum.
A new interpretation of the Gyrotourbillon 1 watch will be available as a part of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Mechanica watch set to be launched shortly.
The Gyrotourbillon 1 functionality includes a perpetual calendar, which is exposed on retrograde dials; an off-centered dial, an equation of time, as well as a power reserve indication. Animating these functions is the hand-wound bi-axial tourbillon caliber 177 movement, which offers a power reserve of 8 days.
As Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out, the model will be put up for Antiquorum’s watch and clock auction to be held in September.
