Although the brand Cecil Purnell is not widely know it sure is amongst watch purists. With a price above 200.000 euro it’s not affordable for everyone. CP has taken the decision to invest heavily into the development of new mechanisms over the next 3-4 years which will bring it to the forefront of complications with respect to Tourbillons in the industry.
The Bi-Tourbillons which both turn clockwise at 3 Hz have been conceived with a contemporary regulating system. This system of 2 gears with a spiral ensures that the Tourbillons cages regulate one another’s speed and are working to increase the precision of the mechanism. Based on a double barrel which ensures better power management.
True GMT in its conception, in addition the hours are from separate axis for easy reading of home time versus local time. It is activated by two separate pushers to change the time. It maintains a practical time adjustment methodology for daylight savings time.
The watch maintains an ‘open face’ three dimensional view of the mechanism from the front with fine finishings on the bridges and main plate to provide a personal experience as to its workings and finishing.
