Baselworld 2010: Automatic Double Axis Tourbillion By Thomas Prescher Is Eerie

If you always wanted a watch that showed the tourbillion in a better fashion than most, you would be pleased to know that the Automatic Double Axis Tourbillion does just that.

The mysterious Automatic Double Axis Tourbillion has been designed and conceived by Thomas Prescher who wanted the tourbillion to be visible more than anything else. He made that possible by tucking away everything else into a corner to only reveal the tourbillion. All you could see in the watch are Tourbillion, calendar and oscillating weight.

The watch also respects the idea of harmony and looks beautiful in a mysterious way. It really is a Horological masterpiece and would soon be unveiled at the Baselworld 2010. It has a Steampunk feel to it and that is perhaps what makes it look so mysterious.

The synchronized motions within the watch create a gyro scoping image. It is an exceptional piece of art and comes with Double Axis Tourbillion. It almost is an ode to the early days of watch making when the Tourbillion was used to make sure gravity did not affect the way time was told.

Baselworld 2010 is scheduled from 18-25 March.
