Quadruple Tourbillon

Between art and technological innovation, the 2nd Fundamental Invention by Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey propels its designers even closer to the heights of horological architecture. The four tourbillons of this stunning composition contribute independently to its exceptional time-keeping performance. This is made possible by the asynchronous position of each of the four tourbillons, which are connected to two autonomous regulating organs. These organs, each housed in a tourbillon cage, are coupled to the spherical differential which ensures transmission to the display system. A pinnacle of virtuosity poised to write a new page in the art of horology.
