  • Masterful mechanics

    The Grande Cosmopolite Tourbillon is one of the most ambitious timepieces of its generation. Flying Tourbillon, perpetual calendar and time zone mechanism combine to form a sophisticated mechanism. Contemporary and innovative, elegant and traditional at once, this masterpiece embodies our vision of the modern art of watchmaking.

  • Cosmopolitan complication

    This exceptional model displays the time in two time zones at once, while accounting correctly for Daylight Saving (DST) or Standard Time (STD). 36 world time zones, colour-coded to indicate their deviation from GMT, are represented by official IATA airport codes. Operation of the complex functions is extremely intuitive.

  • Flying fascination

    The Flying Tourbillon was developed in 1920 by Alfred Helwig in Glashütte. As with its classic counterpart, the balance, escapement and escapement wheel are surrounded by a cage which revolves 360° in one minute – with the Flying Tourbillon this complex construction is anchored on one side only, which makes it seem weightless.

  • Timeless precision

    The perpetual calendar is considered one of the most sophisticated complications in the watchmaker's art. Thanks to is cleverly designed mechanics it displays the day, month, date and even leap years precisely. In theory it will run until the year 2100 before requiring any manual adjustment – a technical masterpiece of lasting value.
