More About this Item


Description: A heavy, rare, almost as new deck watch with 6 minute carousel / tourbillon with original mahogany box with inlaid bone shield Case: silver, polished, tiered, case maker punch mark "WB", gold hinges. Dial: enamel, radial Roman numerals, auxiliary seconds, blued spade hands. Movm.: 2/3 plate movement, frosted, gilt, screwed gold chatons, carousel revolving in 6 minutes, gold screw compensation balance, blued freesprung balance spring, chatoned diamond endstone on balance. "Carousel" watches Six-minute carousels are very rare. In fact, the speed of rotation is closer to that of tourbillions than of carousels. "Carousel" watches are a design by the Danish watchmaker B. Bonniksen, who registered the patent in 1892 in England. His intention was to create a compromise between the "expensive" tourbillon and a normal chronometer - and he actually achieved better results with his carousel than some of the tourbillons.
