Gravity is a hard character to go against. This didn't stop the French-Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguer when he set about develop?ing the tourbillion. From the French word “whirlwind” the tourbillon mounts the escapement and balance wheel in a rotating cage to counter the effects gravity has on a watch even if it is immobile. It is a mechanism described by horologists as utterly brilliant and considered one of the rarest movements in the world. Needless to say chis makes it also one of the most complex movements co make as well as the most sought after in a watch. To dismiss gravity is no easy feat. This movement in a watch can push the cost co a starting price of $100,000. This is why some of the most well-known watch makers, even Rolex, don't even attempt such a feat. Stauer is known for doing what other manufacturers can't, like Breguet, we'll always find a way.
Our Gravité Tourbillon Watch is a testament to the master. The stainless steel case and crown house the precision of a 17-jewel manual wind movement. From the exhibition back to the bezel no detail is over?looked, especially not the tourbillon, The piéce de résistance is displayed in an open window prominently within the watch face between the day/ night dial and 24-hour dial. This glimpse at a mechanical masterpiece lets the world know that precision in time is not co be taken lightly. Now that’s heavy.
