As implied by the watch's name, the tourbillon is special for its verticality: the tourbillon's carriage is connected to the barrel with help of a hand-drawn and bevelled vertical bar. The Vertalis Tourbillon reveals an open-worked version of the barrel, with the tourbillon carriage in motion fascinating the eye. The barrel's cover performs an average rotation in six hours, so the owner of the watch may visually check the power reserve by the state of wind of the barrel spring.
The exclusive hand-wound Vertalis tourbillon movement, decorated with 'Cotes du Jura' engraving and blued steel screws, beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The mechanism provides 72 hours of power reserve.
The sapphire exhibition case-back of the Louis Moinet watch allows one to rest one's eyes on the spectacular winding mechanism. The 'octopus' spring acts as pull-out piece spring, lever spring and click spring. The case back, secured with 4 screws, features the engraving of the individual number and Louis Moinet markings.
The new case of the Vertalis Tourbillon, measuring 47 mm in diameter, comprises 50 individual parts, blending two gold colors - the warm 5N rose gold, and the white gold accentuating the geometrical effect of the vertical bar. The case construction incorporates the Louis Moinet crown guard, with the stem to allow easy replacement if necessary. It is 30-meter water-resistance.
The black dial of the Louis Moinet watch is embellished with 'Cotes du Jura' pattern against a black background completed with rose gold hour-markers and hands. There are two large apertures - one over the tourbillon carriage, and another over the mainspring barrel.
