TRIPLE AXIS TOURBILLON
Inspired by sailing boats, this amazing watch recalls the pure, athletic and sleek shape of a catamaran, while the pure hand-made sapphire tube provides a luminous setting for a unique and exclusive flying triple axis tourbillon. The assembly of the movement is entirely done on the outside, and the H-shaped self-supporting plate is then cased up from the side, before the ensemble is sealed by two sapphire crystal windows.
Cabestan DNA draws its strength from the presence of the inseparable fusée and chain endowing the movement with peerless and reliable accuracy by ensuring constant-force transmission throughout the 50-hour power reserve. The flying triple axis tourbillon, equipped with a balance spring oscillating at a frequency of 3 Hz, rotates separately for each axis in 17 seconds, 19 seconds, and 60 seconds respectively, bringing a lively animated touch to the movement. An endplate uniformly distributes the curve of the spring. The winding and time setting are manually adjusted by a two-position crown.
