Thomas Prescher Unveils Unique Triple Axis Tourbillon Regulator Watch

Jun 28, 2010
In 2004, Thomas Prescher introduced into the challenging world of watchmaking its mind-blowing timepiece trilogy, which embraced single-axis, double-axis and triple-axis tourbillons, equipped with constant-force mechanisms.

Unique in its character, the Thomas Prescher Triple Axis Tourbillon Regulator watch employs an 18K pink gold case, which measures 43mm x 16.5mm. The watch can be also offered in platinum.

On the front side it is protected by a domed sapphire crystal, treated with double-sided anti-glare coating. The same sapphire crystal is used for the case-back. The watch is capable of withstanding water pressures down to 30 feet.

The attractive watch case pairs perfectly with its jet-black natural onyx dial, which reveals 18K gold-applied indices and 18K gold Dauphine-style hands. The display also includes an 18K gold-engraved name and serial number plate. Set within the dial are two counters, which separately mark the progression of regulator-style hours and minutes.

Constantly in motion, the stunning tourbillon keeps track of the minutes during its one-hour revolution.

Alternatively, the Thomas Prescher watch can be proposed with a hand-guilloched or custom embellished solid silver dial.

The technical perfection of the timepiece is ensured by a mechanical manually-wound movement - calibre TP 3W6A.3. Composed of 327 individual parts and adorned with 43 jewels, it boasts the dimensions of 37mm x 6.5mm. The movement features a copper-beryllium CuBe2 balance wheel, moving back and forth at the rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The mechanism also incorporates two mainspring barrels, connected in parallel, flat hairspring as well as gold-finished plates and bridges. It provides a 40-hour power reserve.

The exclusive Thomas Prescher Triple Axis Tourbillon Regulator watch is accompanied by a hand-crafted black alligator leather strap, finished with an 18K pink gold or platinum tang buckle.
