What is a tourbillon?
There are many high level mechanical systems such as Manual (Winding system), Automatic (Automatic winding system) and Quartz (Quartz system) and one of them is Tourbillon (Toubyeong) The highest level of mechanical movement accepted by collectors around the world as one of the most advanced mechanical systems. And wished to find possession With difficulty in production The materials used for production must be of high quality, therefore the ultimate mechanical system has a very expensive production cost. For this reason Tourbillon Will be contained in high level watches only
Who invented tourbillon
The inventor of this innovation is Abraham-Louis. The Swiss-French watchmaker and Abraham-Louis Breguet spent a lot of time testing and testing the various mechanical components of the Tourbillon system and recorded the values for accurate measurement to find the desired value.

Abraham-louis Patented this mechanical system in 1801 in Paris
When Abraham-Louis Invented and developed this mechanism in the year 1795 and patented on June 26, 1801 or 200 years ago, which is the era that the watchmaker still does not know the complex technical calculations like today Considered to be the most advanced in the watch industry at that time
In the olden days, knowledge of metallurgy was not yet advanced. All inventions have problems with temperature and gravitational discrepancies. The Tourbillon mechanism is based on the possibility of making the watch movement to be more accurate and accurate.
The Tourbillon mechanism is based on bringing the Balance Wheel and Escapement together on a rotating frame (called a Tourbillon cage) to distract the gravity of the traction, causing the Balance Wheel and Escapement to move from any position. One or more too little. In the early days of the Tourbillon mechanism, the mechanism rotated 360 degrees in 60 seconds to reduce the discrepancies of the Balance Wheel, Balance Spring and Escapement. It was driven by a Gear Train placed on top. Another set of Main Plate and Abraham-Louis Breguet also invented a special Balance Spring series, called Breguet Overcoil, which calculates the curvature of the Spring coil to be in what form and with what force. But to properly press the Balance Spring set onto the Balance Wheel set requires a lot of expertise and patience in order to not deform the Balance Spring curl. When reading at this point, there is no doubt. Well, right? That's why the Tourbillon is the ultimate watch mechanism and why is this so expensive? But just described as the origin of the Tourbillon mechanism only The Tourbillon mechanism has also been developed to be more accurate and precise, in the industry known as Modern Tourbillon.
All high-end watch brands are trying to install and develop Tourbillon mechanisms for their watches, such as Breguet, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, etc., because they are remarkable. And the prestige of their own brand, or simply speaking, the show above each other Because everyone wants to be the best Not even consumers like us but with this price that is a problem Not everyone can easily find possession with this point, resulting in new manufacturers. But the workmanship is not new, trying to create a watch brand that is equipped with a Tourbillon movement into the watch industry But with a more tangible price and unbeatable piece of work, such as Jaeger Lecoultre, Manufacture Royale, Tag Heuer, is a good opportunity. For those who are interested to easily unlock the ultimate and own the ultimate watch.
