Revealing its beating heart through a window at the bottom of the dial, the Heritage Tourbillon in white gold with an enamel dial takes inspiration from the past. With every tick and every rotation, the Tourbillon emphasizes the human element which has driven the world of watchmaking for centuries.
dive into the technical specifications
The HMC 804 is an automatic tourbillon movement which counteracts the effects of gravity in two ways: the one-minute flying tourbillon, and the patented double hairspring where two identical hairsprings compensate for any positional errors.
Conceived to counteract the effects of gravity on the watch’s timekeeping precision, the tourbillon is a device in which the regulating organ and escapement are placed, which constantly rotates around a central axis to eliminate any positional errors.
A traditional art form dating back hundreds of years, enamel is a vitreous man-made material, composed of glass powder that is melted and hardened into form in a furnace. The result is a far from old-fashioned with a rich texture and ever-lasting colour.
"The Tourbillon itself is very delicate and beautiful."
Stephan Christ, Head of Hairspring Production (Precision Engineering)
