And now for something totally different...

I was on a plane from Beijing to Shanghai yesterday and saw an ad for a Sea-Gull Watches.  This is the first time I've ever seen a double tourbillon.  I hope Sea-Gull hasn't hacked into VC's network and stolen Alex's thunder and surprises for D-3, D-2 and D-1.  And now for something totally different...

THERE ARE WATCHES WITH 2 TOURBILLON ARE MADE BY BREGUET.

IS THERE ANY NEED FOR DOUBLE TOURBILLON???????????

HOW WATCHES WITH 2 BALANCE WORKS???????????????

have as main objective to increase the accuracy rate of the timepiece: each balance canceling the deviations of the other.

As for tourbillons there is a huge debate between watchmakers as to the true chronometric utility of a tourbillon: made originally to cancel deviation rates when the watch is in one singe postion (pocket watches) the benefit is zeroed out in a wrist watch according to some, whereas for others a well regulated tourbillon has superior accuracy to a non tourbillon escapment...

If the tourbillon does indeed provide greater accuracy, I guess will be a debated issue for a while.

One thing that very few will debate is that the Journe is a wonderful masterpiece.
