Zenith Tourbillon Review

Zenith Tourbillon

Most of the time, pocket watch is put in the breast pocket. Due to the gravity, the movement of the mechanical watch, i.e. escapement, was affected. This makes the watch less accurate.

What is Tourbillon?

Tourbillon is an enhancement for mechanical pocket watch by mounting the balance wheel and escapement in a rotating cage. Tourbillon was designed by French-Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet around 1795. The aim of Tourbillon is to negate the effect of gravity when the watch is stay in a certain position for long time to increase the time correctness.
