WINCH TOURBILLON VERTICAL
Thinking out of the box. Parting with conventions. Daring to be bold and ingenious. The genesis of the Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical was creativity at its best. The challenge: design a highly technical movement that is unique and visually exciting, and showcase it in an elegant, yet dramatic manner.
A winch turning a fusee. A chain transferring energy to a drum. A mainspring in the drum storing the energy and retransmitting a constant force, via the chain and fusee, to the movement. The technology was developed in the 15th century, but never before has it been so spectacularly used in a timepiece.
