Tourbillon of Tourbillons

The father, the son and...

the Tri-Tourbillon

Antoine and Florian Preziuso are two watchmakers that share a close bond. They work in concert, resonating off of each other.

With the Tourbillon of Tourbillons ANTOINE PREZIUSO GENÈVE is written a new chapter in the long history of that most emblematic of watchmaking complications: the Tourbillon.

Producing this ‘mechanical ballet’ involved a decade and challenges of incredible complexity, notably the creation of a central planetary triple-differential.
Using a construction and a principle unheard of in the watchmaking world, the three tourbillons resonate with each other like three hearts beating in unison. A work of precision and technical inventiveness, the result of a joint effort and of a human, familial adventure in the long term.

“I have always been a daydreamer; Florian has a very adventurous side. We have been working together in a close-knit way for years by joining forces. For the Tourbillon des Tourbillons, I started the work and Florian found the solutions to finish it. It’s the logical continuation of the story”. Antoine Preziuso

When high watchmaking meets high jewellery

The Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons, features diamonds as part of its exclusive, flamboyant appearance, with an interplay of lights that awakens emotions.

This is both an adventurous and sophisticated creation, as this extravagant, timeless watch not only defies the laws of gravity and plays with those of resonance, it also represents a masterpiece of high jewellery pushed to its limits.

The complex architecture of this watch, which is set off by a 47 mm case that is deliberately extravagant, blends harmoniously with the white 18 ct gold with 233 diamonds that are 24 carat baguette-cut in rare white (Top Wesselton G+), invisible mounting, of unparalleled purity and radiance.

Baguette-cut is one of the most difficult cuts to carry out. Its quality guarantees that light will be reflected well and gives the diamond its magnificent radiance and beauty.

The Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons is a fascinating symphony of light and is evidence of Antoine Preziuso’s ability to combine high watchmaking with high jewellery.

 

TOURBILLON of TOURBILLONS

TTR3 power

Rigid, robust yet light: the Power case of the Tourbillon of Tourbillons pays tribute to the strong outlines of contemporary architecture, with an harmonious blend of titanium, steel and 18-carat gold that offers the wearer all the comfort of fully bio-compatible materials. 

Its characteristic elements are presented in: eight support columns and removable horns in 18-carat gold. 

24  Power screws enclose the upper and lower bezels to ensure that this complex case – formed by 45 components tooled in the block – is fully waterproof.

The case’s dimensions – 45mm in diameter and 14mm thick – make it an audacious choice for a watch conceived in line with the traditional codes of Haute Horlogerie. 

TOURBILLON of TOURBILLONS

TTR3 Chronometer

The Chronometer Tourbillon of Tourbillons is imbued with the symbolism of the figure 3. It is powered by three tourbillons at a frequency of 3Hz, linked by a triple-differential and separated by three “masselottes” in meteorite or in finely engraved gold.
The three tourbillons revolve on their axis every 60 seconds, while the plate completes six revolutions per hour. The sapphire glass on the back of the watch, with its Côtes de Genève patterning, shows three jewels at six o’clock, echoed by three smaller jewels at 12.
The timepiece also evokes Past, Present and Future.
The Tourbillon of Tourbillons is full of explicit or hidden references to the figure 3 and its multiples – as befitting the measurement of Time on Earth, the third planet in the solar system!

The Power of Three

Features three tourbillons on a revolving plate that resonate like three hearts beating in unison. 

This technical tour de force is protected by three international patents and is made possible by a differential installed in the centre of movement. 

The central planetary triple-differential is blend of physical laws and mathematical formulae: the watch’s veritable ‘brain.’ It required years of effort, calculations and imagination, and is of such complexity that no computer programme has succeeded in accurately simulating its method of functioning. It even required the creation of the smallest ball-bearing in the world: scarcely 1.6mm in diameter! 

Patents

Three international patents protect the Tourbillon of Tourbillons, reflecting the creativity and capacity for innovation of ANTOINE PREZIUSO GENÈVE, where the project was brought to fruition after a decade of research.

Multiple Tourbillons on a Revolving Plate

Associating three tourbillons on a revolving plate gives the timepiece unmatched regularity. Each tourbillon completes one rotation per minute, at a faster rhythm than the plate, which completes six rotations per hour (one rotation every ten minutes). The speed at which the tourbillons rotate is accelerated by this double revolution. They are placed equidistant from the centre of the plate, with their respective axes forming an equilateral triangle. Isochronism is enhanced by the fact that the three cages rotate on different axes and at variable speeds.

Resonance

The closeness of the three independent regulating tourbillons – and their positions on the plate – enable them to resonate, and naturally adopt an identical frequency through a phenomenon known as “synchronism”. When the tourbillons start to resonate, their amplitude increases significantly – in a manner perceptible to the naked eye. The system as a whole thus forms a single revolutionary regulator, vibrating at a perfectly stable frequency of 3 Hz.

Triple-Differential or Synchronizer

This differential is unique both in its conception and the variety of tasks it performs. It must distribute constant energy from the double-barrel to the three tourbillons through the centre of the watch, without affecting the axis of the hands; react if one the tourbillon stops working; and correct any variations in frequency. It contains the tiniest ball-bearing in the world, barely 1.6mm in diameter!
