Watch details: The Finissimo Tourbillon watch, equipped with the brand’s own ultra-thin hand-wound movement, is only 1.95 mm thick. While completing the ultra-thin, it is also necessary to ensure the normal operation of the tourbillon, so the plate of Octo Finissimo should be wide rather than thick. Such a thin tourbillon is not only relying on the superb skills of craftsmen. Bvlgari has adopted a new technology called ‘replacement of a drill with a bearing’, which rarely occurs in the movement structure. Manual tourbillon movement splint has only two parts, one is main splint and one is tourbillon splint, which also reduces thickness. In addition, the tourbillon also uses a card-free fine adjustment, a two-arm balance, and all eight adjustment weights are embedded in the groove of the balance, which is thinner than the average balance and makes it more difficult to manufacture. The 40mm white gold case with black lacquered dial is even more beautiful during the tourbillon operation.

Summary: The three tourbillons each have their own emphasis on function and distinctive artistic features, all of which have the value of collection and appreciation. Blancpain’s 12-day long-powered tourbillon wins with long power. The Breguet 5377 ultra-thin automatic tourbillon edge automatic tourbillon is a great innovation. The new technology of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo is the first in the industry. Difficult to distinguish. How to choose depends on personal preference.

The structure based on architectural aesthetics is an indispensable important design element of Girard-Perregaux watches, and the skeletonized new three bridge Neo Tourbillon tourbillon perfectly interprets this deepest level of aesthetic structural elements. The sapphire crystal part of the case has more than the titanium part, which makes the image of the movement clearer and more transparent. The crystal part of the faceplate is in the shape of a glass box, with a convex arch shape, covering the heart of the watch like a protective cover. The crystal glass on the bottom of the table also has a convex arch shape. When viewed from the side, the hollowed-out new triple bridge Neo Tourbillon tourbillon watch is suspended in two layers of sapphire crystal glass, decorated with frosted effect. Gray metal.
This scratch-resistant, complex and chemically pure crystal material fully demonstrates the beautiful structure of the GP 9400-011 movement.

The base plate of the original 9400 movement was replaced by two watch bridges. Their design is exactly the same as the three bridges seen on the faceplate to support the central transmission gear set and the tourbillon at six o’clock. In the same type of movement structure, this design is adopted for the first time, and the curved shape of the table bridge slightly increases the overall thickness of the movement.

Hovering between the bridges is the flow of life in the two watchmaking processes. One is the interconnection of energy and information; the other is the power stored in the barrel and the adjustment effect of the tourbillon. The former uses a micro-automatic disk that is coaxial with the barrel in a unique position to wind the winding. This high-inertia micro-automatic disk made of platinum ensures that the movement can provide a minimum power reserve of 60 hours. At the other end of the chain is the tourbillon of Girard Perregaux. The tourbillon made of titanium is composed of 80 parts, which can effectively ensure the stability of the tourbillon and reduce the frictional resistance.
