Watchfinder & Co. presents:

The tourbillon is perhaps the most impressive complication in watchmaking. It’s also not really a complication, nor is it, in a wristwatch, particularly useful. So, what is it, how does it work, and if it’s so useless, why are we so obsessed with it?

    you really didn't tell me anything bruh… how bout you get a high speed camera and slow down the movement… make an animation or something rather than try to use ever fancy word you can find in the dictionary.

    So pointless, but so neat. Why? Because we can. Reminds me of "Pickle Rick".

    Could this be used to make energy i wonder or to pump water. Invent that and you become a millionaire overnight.

    Tourbillon, an enigmatic horologic creation indeed. Priceless and timeless indeed. 👍

    Beautiful watch. Poor explanation. Too complicated, I didn't understand a thing. He could have went straight to the point.

    Can i say, todays quality mechanical watches are so wel made, the accuracy is allright with a balance wheel, a silicium balance spring and a wel adjusted echappement, and good finished gears, bridges, and rubies.
    A tourbillon is for fun and only to decorate a watch. The wonders of mechanical watches has no end.

    He managed itu in 1700s with hand tools. One thing I admire bout white people as a POC.

    This is confusing. If the tourbillon is not needed in a "wrist" watch, then why are they found in some of the most expensive watches? Do they add a minute (mi-NUTE) degree of accuracy in some way? Are they merely a gimmick to charge many thousands more for a given watch? I feel that this video failed to explain "Why" then, if not necessary in a wrist watch worn on the arm, does the Ulysse Nardin (or any other tourbillon) "have" one? It must serve some purpose — small though it may be. Yes?? Could someone explain?

    I am always very impressed with how everything is described, the choice of words, the way they are conveyed.Its a great pleasure listening to your very creative verbal descriptions , no matter which Watch Company it is .I would go on to say that your views are the majority of the time very objective which is not always the case.You are doing a graet job!

    Yeah, I learned this stuff back in the 80's….what crowd are you playing too? The millennial's? They can't even pay off their college debt let alone buy any of the watches you are pitching numb nuts. By the way, your boyfriend is waiting for you in his underwear. Wanker!

    Oh My God , What a world you opened up to me, I've been exposed to mechanics since I started crawling, I'm 62 now! I just acquired a Hamilton 912 family heirloom and wish it alive again! The monogram doesn't match any of our relatives?? I guess it doesn't compare to this creation? lol

    I can't get enough of these "lessons" in watchmaking. I never realized how esoteric it is.

  • Forest Pepper
    Posted May 3, 2020 8:27 pm

    A tourbillon is not totally useless in a wrist-watch, because most people do not wear a watch all day long; for instance, you may remove the watch while you sleep. So the tourbillon will at least improve accuracy during those periods when the wrist-watch is stationary.
