Lot Essay

In 1795 Abraham-Louis Breguet invented the tourbillon to counteract the effects of gravitational pull on clocks and watch escapements. Gravity has a negative effect on timekeeping with a movement running slower or faster depending on its position. This tourbillon is considered an engineering and design marvel and given its complexity only a limited number of watches are produced each year.
