Post Lot Text
“The Palatial Opera Flying Tourbillon is a delightful fusion of time and light. An exquisite masterpiece of horology and gem setting, each captivating timepiece requires 18 months to produce. Constructed to resemble an amphitheatre, every superbly executed detail has been designed and crafted to invite the apparently freestanding, or flying tourbillon to take centre stage” – Jacob & Co.

This dazzling white gold and diamond Palatial Opera Flying Tourbillon was made in a limited edition of only 18 pieces. To the best of our knowledge the present watch is the first white gold model to be offered at international auction.

An impressive 47 mm. in diameter, this exceptional jewelled masterpiece is fitted with a movement having hand-finished polished angles and a one-minute flying tourbillon with a titanium balance. The dial and case are entirely invisibly set with almost 400 baguette-cut diamonds with a total weight in the region of over 30 carats.

The particularity of the tourbillon is that all the escapement parts - pallets wheel, pallets and sprung balance - are assembled in a small mobile cage that makes one complete rotation in one minute. This ingenious device, invented by the celebrated Abraham-Louis Breguet, eliminates performance variations due to gravitational forces and thus assures optimum accuracy in the mechanical watch.
