Purnell unveils the Escape II Double Spherion Icy Blue with a platinum case and icy blue finishes.
Purnell Escape II collection, already known for its two high-velocity triple-axis tourbillons called “Spherions”, is presented in the most precious material: platinum.
Under Escape II sapphire crystal dome lays a fascinating mechanism featuring a double Spherion. The Spherion’s inner cage housing the balance wheel makes a full revolution in just 8 seconds, the second cage completes its revolution in 16 seconds, while the outer cage rotates in 30 seconds, which makes it the fastest triple axis tourbillon in the world. This spectacular tourbillon movement was developed by Master Watchmaker Eric Coudray.
The watch has a 48mm diameter case made of Platinum 950 and a sapphire dial. In addition to all, a rare and particularly seductive Icy blue finishes the watch novelty with brilliant audacity.
An arctic touch is visible on the indexes of the sapphire hour and minute dial, on the hands and on the two Spherion cages.
