The JIUSKO Tourbillon. The grail for collectors, or anybody who wants to make the supreme statement with his watch!
The tourbillon movement was patented in 1801 by French watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet, potentially the finest watchmaker of perpetuity. The tourbillon (whirlwind in French) is a method to prevent the force of gravity from effecting the accuracy of the balance wheel. Breguet's innovative response was to use the energy of the mainspring to rotate the balance wheel, as soon as per minute, so that gravity would no longer take down on any one part of it. Today, just the very finest Swiss watches employ this exceedingly complex engineering, and those who do will ask a minimum of $50,000 for one. However JIUSKO enables you to own one yourself, for a portion of the price.
In addition to the complex tourbillon cage that rotates as soon as per minute in the dial (acting as the seconds hand), the JIUSKO likewise has in the magnificently in-depth dial a power reserve meter-a need to in a hand-wound watch like this, because it tells you how much power remains kept in the mainspring. Also included on the dial is an elegant moonphase window at the 3 o'clock position. The case itself is crafted from surgical grade stainless steel, and the bezel is 18k gold, as are the indices at the hour markers and the JIUSKO logo design on the deploy clasp. Safeguarding the impressive movement and art-piece dial are scratchproof sapphire crystals, front and back.
For a timepiece like this, no regular leather will do for the strap, so JIUSKO uses the finest readily available alligator skin. The deploy clasp, with push-button release, will keep the strap looking fresh and new for several years to come. And to keep the watch safe when you're not using it, it comes packaged in a mahogany wood discussion box.
