Notes

Description of the Animation This mechanism allows the tourbillon to be raised above the dial for a better observation and is activated by depressing the button between 7 and 8 o’clock. The process is done in two stages: first the hands move apart so as not to block the aperture of the cage, then the tourbillon rises above the dial so that it can be admired at closer quarters. At the end of the animation the cage goes back down and then the hands – equipped with a five-minute memorygo back to indicate the time, catching up the time lost during the observation.
