As two important devices designed to reduce the effect of gravity on the movement of the movement, the tourbillon and Caruso have long been famous in the watch industry. Swiss watch brand Blancpain Blancpain combines the two speed-regulating systems for the first time, and presents another pioneering masterpiece in the watch industry.
Blancpain’s watchmaking workshop in Le Brassus, Switzerland, combines two of the brand’s signature complex processes, tourbillons and Carloso’s pioneering actions, to create another outstanding technological breakthrough in the history of watchmaking. The new watch is equipped with flying tourbillon and flying caruso at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock respectively, and the date window is at 3 o’clock.
The two mechanisms are different from each other, and they are constantly rotating, making them dazzling in the watch. By connecting two differential gear systems with independent rotating frames, the two speed adjustment systems jointly average the position difference, and finally show the speed of travel; the external winding crown is synchronized with the winding of the two barrels, thereby giving The timepiece has excellent accuracy and ample 7-day power reserve. Through the sapphire crystal case back, this unique and unique mechanical mechanism and power reserve indication are clearly visible.
This time, Le Brassus’s watchmaking workshop reinterprets Caruso, giving it high-efficiency functions, in an effort to revive this long-established mechanical device, opening a new era of Caruso’s application in the field of watchmaking. The new interpretation of Carloso can effectively run alternately with the tourbillon, but its operation is quite different. Although the two structures are different, they have the same magic.
Among them, the tourbillon connects the frame to the barrel with a single gear transmission chain, which means that once this mechanical connection is interrupted, the tourbillon will also stop rotating. Carrousel is connected to the barrel by a double-gear drive chain: one transmits the energy used to run the escapement and the other controls the frame’s rotation speed. In two different systems, Carrousel’s structure is more complicated and there are more parts.To ensure the two co-exist and run smoothly, it is undoubtedly a great challenge. Blancpain’s watchmaking masters have created this field. This extraordinary initiative.
As always, the immortal works, Blancpain also strives to be meticulous in the movement of this watch. The front of the movement is engraved with engraving, and the internal movement of the parts is clearly visible; the retro flinqué lacquer and the bridge pattern complement each other, creating a harmonious beauty; the wheel plate is unique with the brand Some bevelled wheel rim-style gears echo each other. This meticulous care of decorative elements gives this timepiece a deep and unique unique aesthetic.
This precision timepiece is equipped with a new manual winding movement 2322. The movement has a diameter of 35.3 mm and a thickness of 5.85 mm. It is made of selected 379 parts, including two new silicon springs.
The watch case is elegant and slim, with a diameter of 44.60 mm and a thickness of only 11.94 mm. It is a classic example of comfortable wearing. The dial is understated and aesthetically pleasing, with large open flame enamel graduated rings, 5N gold Roman numerals jumping on it. The delicate crocodile leather strap is equipped with a soft and comfortable Alzavel inner lining, and it is also equipped with a three-fold buckle.
