Da Vindice Vindex Tourbillon Barometer

Vindex Tourbillon Barometer is an amazing horological masterpiece from Da Vindice, a promising young Swiss luxury watch brand founded in 2009.

Originally launched in 2010, this revolutionary mechanical timepiece represents a fascinating fusion of a tourbillon and an aneroid barometer , which evokes a great historical discovery in the field of mechanical watchmaking.

Da Vindice Vindex Tourbillon Barometer watch pink gold version

The barometer is part of the measuring instruments which have contributed to the birth of meteorology, this instrument can measure the atmospheric pressure and thus get weather forecast. The first aneroid barometer was introduced around the year 1840.

The type of barometer used in this watch is an aneroid barometer. The atmospheric pressure is managed in a capsule, known as « Vidie capsule» hermetically sealed with the air partially removed from it.
The walls of the capsule are held apart by a spring. Small changes in atmospheric pressure cause the capsule to expand or contract. Therefore, a mechanical system can amplify the movements resulting from changes in pressure to make them visible on the dial.

The Tourbillon Barometer watch by Da Vindice is a noble creation endowed with a power reserve at 10 o’clock. The tourbillon complication is visible on the centre part of the partially skeletonized dial.

This exclusive wristwatch is water-resistant up to 3 ATM, despite its mechanical complexity. The Vindex Tourbillon Barometer  is a limited edition of 50 pieces.
