Thomas Prescher Triple Axis Tourbillon Watch

Featured here with a black onyx regulator style dial and their specially designed trigonal guilloché finished caliber.
Thomas was the first watchmaker to make a triple axis Tourbillon in a wristwatch in 2004, when he debuted it at the Baselworld fair in Switzerland to much astonishment. Never before had this been accomplished, and many said it wasn't possible!

Romain Gauthier 18K WG LOGICAL One Watch
Romain Gauthier's amazing watch, that propels him more into the rarified world of top end Independent Watchmakers. This tour de force, is a micro mechanical engineering marvel featuring several never been done before complications, that aid in efficiency and mechanical superiority. The first is the use of a jewelled chain with a cam (similar principle as a chain & fussee) for a constant torque mechanism and the second is a ratchet winding system for the synthetic sapphire sided main spring barrel. These features of the winding and mainspring help in reducing friction, a watchmaking nemesis! Add to this the exceedingly high level of traditional hand finishing found in the Vallee de Joux and one is presented with a superlative piece.
Presented here also is the platinum case with optional white enamel dial. It is also available in 18K WG with the gold frosted bridges and the option of a guilloche dial. The platinum was limited to only 20pcs and is sold out. The WG variant is available to order.
Also available in a Titanium case starting at $122,100 with a variety of dial options.
Thomas Prescher Single Axis Tourbillon
18k white gold Thomas Prescher Tourbillon featuring Thomas' own caliber in the square case. Uniquely designed by Thomas, the flying tourbillon has a constant force mechanism in the cage, to improve time keeping over the different amplitudes of the mainspring as it unwinds.
An unusual trigonal guilloché is found on the caliber back, together with the traditional hallmarks of a finely hand finished mechanical watch, anglage, black polish and a solid silver hand guilloché dial. This watch sports a sub dial for the seconds hand and the tourbillon appears right under the curved sapphire crystal.
