Focus On: The Giga Tourbillon By Franck Muller
Technology and movement are two keywords of the watch lover’s vocabulary. The Giga Tourbillon from Franck Muller fits perfectly with them as it presents an extremely large tourbillon cage 20 mm in diameter. The oscillations of the balance wheel are thus magnified and its motion amplified by this extra size. Of course, developing such an unusual movement implies constraints and special calculations, in particular for the sensitive hairspring, which is manufactured by the brand itself. To reinforce the technical elements of the watch, the movement is skeletonized, meaning it allows every detail of it to be seen. Because of its size and the know-how it implies, we are of the opinion that the Giga Tourbillon from Franck Muller is one of the most significant contemporary tourbillons.
