Jaeger LeCoultre Gyro Tourbillon - the final edition in Rose Gold

Jaeger LeCoultre has been pushing the envelope of high horology for some time. With the Gyrotourbillon announced in 2004. The original series is produced in a platinum case, and I had the opportunity to photograph and view the final run of 30 pieces in rose gold.

The Gyrotourbillon has grown more beautiful in its new clothes. Rose gold certainly is a more romantic feel and beautiful glow to this highly technical watch.

A closer look at the gyrotourbillon - two axis spinning is quite mesmerising to watch. Finish of the movement is quite beautifully done in the traditional way.

And an even closer look at the 3 dimensional tourbillon:

Like a skeletonized globe...the double tourbillon is very amazing as it goes about its business..

And a look at the entire back through the display case:

Stay tuned for this Friday's installment of the JLC Grande Tradition Grande Complication.
