Ellicott Tourbillon Springfield

The limited edition Tourbillon Springfield watch from Swiss luxury watch brand Ellicott expresses the talent of the brand’s master watch makers with an impressive array of exclusive technical and aesthetic characteristics.

The Tourbillon Springfield watch is available in Pink Gold (Ref ECW 1 PGT) or White gold (ECW 1 WGT) case with tantalum bezel and back. This timepiece features a skeleton dial and incorporated Springfield Tourbillon ECW1 caliber, the world’s first automatic movement with a butterfly winding system.

With this timepiece, Ellicott presents the first self-winding tourbillon movement with twin rotors whose winding action resembles beating butterfly wings. Innovative in design and contemporary in spirit, the case is fashioned from precious or unexpected materials. Along with definite in-wear comfort, it provides unusual angles with which to observe the movement through apertures in the case sides.

The dial reveals some of the movement’s mechanical components, visible through the apertures between the hour markers that allow the wearer to see deep into the heart of his watch. The harmony and balance of this first Ellicott Concept Watch, its proportions and the originality of its design all come together to compose an instantly recognizable timepiece.

The model is also available in a titanium version (Titanium case with tantalum bezel and back) and a platinum version: (platinum case, bezel and back).
