Cabestan merges traditional skills with technological innovation and avant-garde design. Entirely the work of master-watchmaker Eric Coudray, the Triple Axis Tourbillon is inspired by the catamaran’s sleek lines. The case – a hand-polished sapphire tube made as a single block – contains a triple axis flying tourbillon. Each of the three cages rotates at a different speed. This superposition of 17, 19 and 60-second durations brings stunning kinetic complexity to the movement, heightened by its position in the watch. It also benefits from the positive effects of a fusee and chain transmission. The 507 parts in this chain are assembled in-house. As for the movement parts, they are chamfered, polished and finished by hand, and remain perfectly visible. The uniquely constructed case is proposed in a range of precious metals or treatments, at the customer’s request, within a limit of 135 pieces.
Mechanical hand-wound, CAB EC 17 calibre, 1,044 parts, fusee and chain constant force mechanism, triple axis flying tourbillon with three rotational speeds, 50-hour power reserve.
