As one of the three complicated functions, the tourbillon was originally developed to offset the gravity of the pocket watch and improve the accuracy of the travel time, because the pocket watch is not worn on the wrist, but long. The time is in a delicate state, and the escapement of the movement maintains one direction. Due to the effect of gravity, it will inevitably affect the accuracy of the watch’s travel time for a long time. This is why Mr. Boucher invented the tourbillon Already. Today, the Watch House will bring you a IWC Portuguese Tourbillon watch, the official model is: IW544601.
Although the tourbillon has played a great role in controlling the accuracy of the watch at the initial stage, but nowadays no one can guarantee how much the tourbillon can accurately control the watch, because the current watch is already It is worn on the wrist and swings with the person’s wrist, so the effect of gravity on it is very small.
Since the tourbillon does not have a very obvious role, why do many brands still spare no effort to develop the tourbillon technology? Because the tourbillon technology of modern watches is mainly based on symbolic functions, major brands have spent a lot of energy on the development of tourbillons. For example, what are the two-axis three-dimensional, constant power and other tourbillons are in recent years. The main results. The picture shows a three-handed and one-line tourbillon watch from IWC.
IWC’s three-pin and one-line tourbillon watch is made of 950 platinum, which is a low-key luxury. In addition to platinum, this model is also available in rose gold and white gold. The side of this watch is brushed for a beautiful and stylish look.
The watch is paired with a black alligator leather strap, sewn with black silk thread, soft and comfortable to wear on the wrist.
On the side of the watch, we can see that it is brushed, beautiful and fashionable. According to official data, the thickness of this watch is 12.3 mm. From the picture we can see that there is a number under the side of the watch, 23/100, which means that this watch is limited to 100 pieces, and this one we shot is the 23rd of them.
The tourbillon device at the 9 o’clock position of the watch. From here we can clearly see the operation of the watch tourbillon, watch the rotation of the balance wheel, watch the hairspring expand and tighten, and have to marvel at the charm of the machine.
From this side we can clearly see the dial pattern setting of the watch, the watch uses a new standard needle design. The standard needle is different from the large three needle and the small three needle. Although the current watch mainly has the large three needle and the small three needle, this watch has a unique standard needle design.
The black crocodile leather strap with platinum folding clasp is very convenient and safe after being adjusted.
The watch is equipped with a cal.98845 manual winding movement, which is a special edition pocket watch movement that runs at 28800 revolutions per hour. It is designed with a beryllium bronze alloy balance wheel. The fine adjustment screws on the balance axis are eccentric. Both can be viewed through the sapphire crystal back and front.
Summary: At present, the design of the tourbillon is unique, and I always want to create something different. The original watch had a tourbillon, and I felt that it could not open up the gap with others, so there was a double tourbillon. With the appearance of the four tourbillons, I don’t think it will increase in number any more, because the watch classic is so large in total, if it is to be added, it will be a clock. The domestic price of this platinum three-pin and one-line tourbillon watch introduced by the Watch House today is 630,000 yuan.
