Montblanc Tourbillon Bi-Cylindrique
The Montblanc Tourbillon Bi-Cylindrique is a genuine specialized wonder and highlights the equivalent tourbillon development as in ship’s chronometers. With this watch, Montblanc truly shows what they can do.
Montblanc’s Tourbillon Bi-Cylindrique has an extraordinary tourbillon development, which has at no other time been executed in a wrist watch. It’s notorious case with a tear shape at the 6 position was before utilized for the Grand Tourbillon Heures Mysterieuses and the Metamorphosis. Although the case, which is 47mm in width, is rather huge it wears especially comfortable.
The Tourbillon Bi-Cylindrique includes the equivalent tourbillon development as can be found in a ship’s chronometer. Two round and hollow equilibrium springs are situated concentrically, one inside the other. This requires the two equilibrium springs to have an alternate width, yet they should have a similar force. While one equilibrium spring extends, the other agreements and the other way around. This way the force stays as before and this upgrades the watches isochronism (or rate).
Three years prior Montblanc dispatched its first Tourbillon with a Heures Mysterieuses time sign made in Villeret. The new Tourbillon Bi-Cylindrique includes a similar baffling hour and moment show and now even uncovers how the cog wheels of the ‘Heures Mysterieuses’ work.
