The tourbillon – meaning whirlwind – mechanism, invented just over 200 years ago, is considered one of the most challenging watch mechanisms to build.

Originally designed for pocket watches to maintain their accuracy by counteracting the effect of gravity, the tourbillon is no longer a necessity, but remains as a hallmark of quality for premium brands such as Germany’s A Lange & Sohne. They have combined the mechanism with the classic looks of their rectangular Cabaret watch to create the Cabaret Tourbillon. The movement, containing 2 diamonds and 47 ruby jewels, is visible through a window in the watch face. Add to that a solid silver dial, either rhodiumed or pink gold hands and a supple crocodile strap and the asking price of £138,000 would seem to be justified.
