A tourbillon in its most demanding versionBASELWORLD 2015: The Fabergé Visionnaire 1
Fabergé’s first complicated watch, the Visionnaire 1 works its magic through a precious and unexpected composition reflecting the famous mysterious eggs from the Maison. This haute horlogerie model showcases the tourbillon in its most demanding version: the flying tourbillon.
As if suspended in its carriage at 9 o’clock, this fascinating horological complication performs its seductive rotations in full view. The movement gear wheels may also be fleetingly glimpsed between the trapeze shapes forming a 3D rosette motif in the centre of the watch, while the back also reveals the most essential elements of this refined mechanism. The flying tourbillon appears in a hollow at 3 o’clock, topped by a discreet power-reserve display. The barrel ratchet-wheel draws the gaze with its pawl and spring hugging its circumference. 15-piece limited series.
