Top 5 Tourbillon Watches Of 2015, So Far

Watches make our head spin, and none more than tourbillon watches. The debate over whether tourbillons are useful is sure to rage on, but one thing is for sure: They add beautiful motion to the dial and give us a better sense that our horological companion is ticking to life’s beat. Here are the best tourbillon watches we’ve since thus far.

Usually on full display through skeletonized dials and movements, the technical features of the new RM 19-02 Tourbillon Fleur are this time hidden by a magnolia flower at 7 o’clock. But every five minutes, the five delicate hand-decorated petals of the magnolia bloom to reveal a flying tourbillon with its gemstone-set bud. Made of gold, this modern automaton combines beauty and motion for a stunning effect. For a closer look at this year’s design, please click here

An immediately striking feature of H. Moser & Cie’s latest timepiece is its case, which was created entirely out of sapphire crystal. The transparency of the case and dial highlights the piece’s sensual curves and grants the wearer an unfettered view of the HMC 803 calibre, and also makes the perfect visual showcase for its tourbillon allowing the traditional watch complication to shine in a whole new way.
