Poljot International Tourbillon T14 with white-silver dial.
This watch is limited to just 100 pieces. We get only 5 last pieces of this version!
This exclusive watch has a polished stainless steel case with 43mm diameter (with crown 48mm), 14mm height and 20mm lug width and a white-silver guilloche (fluted) dial.
Sapphire crystal and a screwed crystal back. The two small dials at "9" show the power reserve indicator and at "3" the day and night status using the moon and sun.
The "Made in Germany" logo highlights the headquarters of the Poljot International watch manufacture in Alzenau - near Aschaffenburg in Bavaria. There these watches are created and assembled...
The hour and minute hands in the upper dial are equipped with luminous material (Superluminova) and the curved second hand is artfully combined with the rotating tourbillon. The power reserve indicator shows the remaining spring force of the watch - with a power duration of 80 hours when fully wound!
The tourbillon caliber PI 3340 has 27 jewels, a double barrel (hence 80 hours of power), a shockproof balance wheel, 28,800 vibrations per hour and a tourbillon cage.
The screwed glass bottom also gives a clear view of the work, which is decorated with blued screws and stripes.
Delivery including case, Poljot International leather strap and papers.
We currently deliver this watch at no extra charge with 2 additional leather straps from RIOS1931 in light and dark brown - as well as a mounted butterfly folding clasp!
Of course, the tourbillon is the eye-catcher on this watch and you can't get enough of this rotating complication - but what exactly is a tourbillon?
Here is the explanation - copyright Wikipedia:
Abraham Louis Breguet (1747–1823) invented the tourbillon in 1795 in order to eliminate changes in the position of a pocket watch (and the resulting inaccuracy). The patent was granted in Paris in 1801; In this case, the escape wheel, the anchor and the so-called balance wheel are installed on a small plate in a bogie, a cage on the shaft of the seconds wheel. The second drive is screwed onto the bogie from below and permanently installed on the lower board. The bogie, in the middle of which the balance wheel swings exactly above the shaft of the fourth wheel, rotates around the screwed-on second wheel. The escape wheel drive runs on it. So if the fourth wheel rotates once per minute, the tourbillon (the circuit board) also makes this rotation. This means that errors in position or center of gravity no longer occur or are compensated for once a minute (depending on the tourbillon). "
In addition to the minute repeater (sound mechanism like a church tower clock), the tourbillon is the most complex complication in mechanical clocks!
