Jaeger-LeCoultre: Tourbillon watches explained by Jeff Kingston

Jeff Kingston visits the workshop Jaeger-LeCoultre in Switzerland.

 

Specialty Tourbillons – that’s the subject of Jeff Kingston’s visit to the Grand Complications Workshop of Jaeger-LeCoultre in Le Sentier in the Vallée de Joux. It’s where the four different generations of tourbillons unique to Jaeger-LeCoultre are made.

The Gyrotourbillon 1, the Gyrotourbillon 2, and the Gyrotourbillon 3 – each one is different from the others, each one has a different form of spiral – and the Spherotourbillon. Enjoy the unique look behind the scenes of Jaeger-LeCoultre.

    The delicate precision is indeed impressive and I enjoyed this video. But if you spend some time researching the accuracy of tourbillons, you’ll find that they are not more accurate and offer no timekeeping benefit over conventional escapements.
