The Jaeger LeCoultre Gyrotourbillon series is now nearing the completion...with the release of the Gyro3 this year. But the piece which still keeps its special place in my mind is the Gyro2.
Round like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending on beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
Not only is it housed in the classical albeit enlarged case of the legendary Reverso series, but the movement is simply amazing. The gyrotourbillon is truly a marvel. The dial side...
Flip the case over, and one is greeted by this beautiful movement.
Watching the tourbillon, turning on its axes is simply mesmerising...wonderful.
Another view of the tourbillon...magnificent.
I leave you with an image of a beautiful hand, holding the beautiful watch.
Note this watch is a prototype, with the attendent scratches, and dust particles. The watch was photographed during the JLC Hybris Mechanical show, and the photographs were made on a watchmaker stand, with existing lighting.
