Asprey No. 8 Tourbillon

Equipped with the Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier 6004, this remarkable Asprey manual wound tourbillon watch in white gold is limited to only 10 pieces. A rare phenomenon in watch making, the 30 second revolution of the Tourbillon rather than the standard minute, bears eloquent witness to an exceptional level of technical know-how and craftsmanship.

The Tourbillon has a seven day power reserve and the pure, understated beauty of the movement is revealed at the reverse of the watch, making it equally elegant and refined whether viewed from the front or the reverse.
