The Tourbillon Thunderbolt by Franck Muller has been selected by Carmelo Anthony, as today’s Haute Time Watch of the Day. This is a remarkable timepiece by Franck Muller, and has been called the fastest tourbillon ever created!
Since most tourbillons complete a rotation every sixty seconds and the Tourbillon Thunderbolt completes a rotation every 5 seconds, that certainly tells us what the name signifies. The Thunderbolt Tourbillon was developed by the same master watchmaker who invented the Franck Muller Giga Tourbillon, Pierre-Michele Golay. Along with the team of watchmakers at Franck Muller, they spent 3 years to research, develop and perfect this timepiece.
With a limited distribution due to the complexity of the movement and detailed hand finishing, the Tourbillon Thunderbolt by Franck Muller takes haute watchmaking to the next level.
