Thomas Prescher and the astonishing Triple Axis Tourbillon Regulator

The actual precision of a tourbillon is debatable, but the visual capacity of those extremely intricate constructions is what makes them a limitless sought-after piece for any passionated watch connoisseur. Well, and that’s when the German master watchmaker Thomas Prescher comes into the limelight as he’s the first to achieve a flying triple-axis tourbillon with a constant force mechanism, probably among the most difficult complications. What makes this even more glamorous is that this particular micro-mechanical impossibility is based upon a detailed drawing from Prescher’s first steps in the industry. The Triple Axis Tourbillon Regulator provides a clear view into the mesmerizing movement of the tourbillon whose smallest screw is less than 1/1000th of a gram. The caliber moreover runs on 43 jewels, features a power reserve of 40 hours, and drives at 21.600 bph while the case strikes with a classic 18kt rose gold or platinum to a jet-black natural onyx color contrast, and a hand-crafted alligator leather strap.
