Girard-Perregaux Tri-Axial Tourbillon (Preview)

Baselworld 2014…Sneak peek…

Girard-Perregaux Tri-axial Tourbillon

Girard-Perregaux is set to unveil a triple-axis tourbillon at Baselworld 2014.   This really goes without saying, but a tri-axial tourbillon is a horological rarity, (I believe) first accomplished in a wristwatch by small independent watchmaker Thomas Prescher about 10 years agoThe Harry Winston Histoire de Tourbillon 4 featured a triple axis tourbillon; esteemed independent Vianney Halter also introduced his own version, the Deep Space, last year.   Maybe others but these come to mind right now (thanks readers for your comments).

    Franck Muller also has a 3-axis. This is also some years old, but I don’t know when it first came out.

    Wasn’t the Zenith Zero-G a 3-axis Turbillion?

      Not sure, though I do recall more recently Zenith Christophe Colombe is tri-axial and has the “bubble” as well. Thanks for noting that, I made a revision to my comments above.
