Tourbillon - compensates for the differences in gait caused by the adoption of different positions by a watch. The principle is to mount the balance and the exhaust in a rotating cage. The balance wheel and the escapement rotate around their common axis, passing through all the positions to average the errors. The cages or platforms of a vortex generally rotate once per minute. The ultimate in watchmaking complication. Watch in superb condition with its box, over-box and its original papers.
