While a conventional tourbillon is already mesmerizing to watch, a multi-axis tourbillon only multiplies this pleasure. Let’s take a look at some of the most impressive multi-axis tourbillons by some of the world’s most innovative watch brands.
Cabestan Triple Axis Tourbillon
The case of the Cabestan Triple Axis Tourbillon seemed to be crafted so that you can view its ingenious mechanism from as many angles as possible. This thanks to an ingenious case that holds a hand-crafted sapphire crystal between two gold arcs. It is one of those details that makes this watch just irresistible. Other things that will delight any watch connoisseur are the fact that the movement is Fusée-and-Chain driven, as well as a dial that seems to float in the air.
Jacob & Co Astronomia
A watch must be very impressive when a triple axis tourbillon is not the highlight of the watch, yet one the highlights! Jacob & Co delivers just that with the Astronomia. A unique horological experience that features next to the triple axis tourbillon, a magnesium lacquered globe, one carat Jacob cut diamond and a small dial displaying the hours and minutes that always stays right side up when it moves around in the case. The backdrop for this spectacle is segments of aventurine, representing outer space.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon
An iconic case reunited with an iconic complication, that is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon. This is the second time that Jaeger-LeCoutre fits the Gyrotourbillon in the Reverso case, this time with the revised caliber 179. Jaeger-LeCoultre discontinued the aluminum cage around the two-axis tourbillon, allowing you to admire all the details even better. One of these details is the hemispherical balance spring, doing its work in a truly mesmerizing way!
Greubel Forsey Double Tourbillon 30° Technique
Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey have dedicated a great deal of their career to multi-axis tourbillons, and their mastery of the subject is testified by the Double Tourbillon 30° Technique. An outer cage that makes a full turn every four minutes houses an inner tourbillon cage at an angle of 30°, rotating in 60 seconds. If that is not complicated enough already, the also fitted this multi-axis tourbillon watch with four coaxial mainspring barrels, giving it a power reserve of 120 hours.
