Tourbillon 1801 #1

The tourbillon was invented in the 19th century by Abraham-Louis Breguet to counteract the forces of gravity on a watch by rotating the timekeeping mechanism. Nowadays, tourbillons are prestige high-end complications mainly featured on unaffordable Swiss brand name watches.


This watch is a Chinese tourbillon, which features the same technical innovation at a fraction of the price. The movement comes from the Liaoning Watch factory, while the watch is cased at the Million Smart facility.
