Introducing: The F.P. Journe Tourbillon Souverain Vertical

Fast Take

To commend the 20th commemoration of the Tourbillon Souverain, F.P. Journe has one-increased himself, launching another tourbillon model that turns the controller 90 degrees and pairs the pivoting rate of the tourbillon for more prominent execution and enhanced visualization. The appropriately named Tourbillon Souverain Vertical is a truly complicated fake watch prices so I figure we’ll simply stroll through it nibbled by bit.

First off, the fake watch prices begins with a 42mm case in platinum or red gold. From that point, you’ll notice that there’s not a genuine “dial” in a manner of speaking. All things considered, the red gold mainplate fills in as the heft of the dial, with a white veneer sub-dial set into the mainplate for the hours, minutes, and seconds. Over that is a force hold marker to check down the roughly 80 hours you’ll get. To one side of the time is an opening that allows you to look at the remontoire d’egalité mechanism in real life, a demonstration of the watch’s chronometric purposes. Then there’s the tourbillon itself. It pivots once at regular intervals and sits opposite to the shape of the case. To receive significantly more visual depth in return, there are reflected rings flanking the gap on both front and back, piping more light toward the tourbillon confine itself. The cherry on top? The fake watch prices has a characteristic loser seconds mechanism as well, which means you get a miscreant seconds complication without compromising on exactness (this was first acquainted with the Tourbillon Souverain in 2003).

If you need to study the history of F.P. Journe tourbillons and how we got to the Tourbillon Souverain Vertical, this Reference Points story and video we moved in 2016 with Mr. Journe himself is a really extraordinary spot to start. 

Beginning Thoughts

I’m not normally a tourbillon fellow ( I’ve gone on the record about it on various occasions), yet damn does this look great. I think Journe likely might have pulled off a basic dial or case update to praise the Tourbillon Souverain’s 20th commemoration and authorities would in any case have gone insane for whatever restricted release was the outcome. However, it isn’t so sort of thinking or watchmaking that’s made F.P. Journe the clique most loved that it is, and the Tourbillon Souveraine Vertical is such a startling, fresh thinking that we’ve come to anticipate from one of the present most noteworthy living watchmakers.

In expansion to my standard abhorrence for tourbillons, my first reaction to hearing about this vertical tourbillon was a basic “Why?” Would this truly have such an important effect or is it simply an esthetic exercise? The clarification is shockingly evident once you hear it: Some individuals wear their fake watch prices with deployant clasps and others lean toward prong clasps. Contingent upon which you chose, your fake watch prices is arranged distinctively when you put it down. The situation of the tourbillon in this fake watch prices guarantees that you’ll get the exhibition benefits either way. Consider me impressed.

My one complaint? Do we truly require “Tourbillon Remontoir d’Egalité Seconde Morte” illuminated at the lower part of the dial? I need to wear a fake watch prices on my wrist, not a short story. Be that as it may, I digress…
