Lot 703: AN UNUSUAL GENTLEMANS MECHANICAL STAINLESS-STEEL WRIST WATCH WITH POWER RESERVE INDICATOR AND ONE-MINUTE FLYING TOURBILLON MOVEMENT...

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: AN UNUSUAL GENTLEMANS MECHANICAL STAINLESS-STEEL WRIST WATCH WITH POWER RESERVE INDICATOR AND ONE-MINUTE FLYING TOURBILLON MOVEMENT, UNSIGNED, recent, the seventeen jewel hand-wound movement with 'cotes de Geneve', round silvered dial with engine-turned decoration, applied roman numerals, outer dot minute markers, flying tourbillon with seconds register at '6', 60-hour power reserve scale between '1' and '2'', polished circular case with coin-edged bezel, domed crystal, solid lugs, exhibition glazed back and onion winder, black leather strap with stainless deployant clasp, the whole appearing little used Other Notes: In horology, a tourbillon (or "whirlwind" in French) is an addition to the mechanics of a watch escapement. Developed around 1795 by the French-Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet from an earlier idea by the English chronometer maker John Arnold, a tourbillon trys to counter the effects of gravity by mounting the escapement and balance wheel of the watch movement in a rotating cage, to negate the effect of gravity when the timepiece (and thus the escapement) is left in a certain position. Originally an attempt to improve accuracy in pocket watches, tourbillons are still included in some expensive modern watches as a novelty and demonstration of the pinnacle of watchmaking virtuosity. The tourbillon cage and balance wheel are usually exposed on the watch's face to show off the intricate mechanism.
