The Geo.Graham Tourbillon is an object of pure and balanced beauty. It was released just this year in Basel by Graham, the independent Swiss manufacturer that takes its inspiration and horological passion from the master of British watch-making, George Graham.
Classical and elegant, with its domed enamel dial in cool crisp white and featuring black Roman and Arabic numerals, the new Geo.Graham tourbillon successfully melds refined design and intricate technical achievement.
The extra-thin G1796 houses a micro-rotor powered slim tourbillon, a surprising detour from the bolder sizes the brand generally proposes.
The dial, clearly reminiscent of the renowned work of George Graham, features the 60 seconds tourbillon at 6 o’clock, giving the viewer a spectacular see-through experience while placing the accent on the light and weightless look of the tourbillon cage.
Turn the watch over and you find the work on the case-back is a different experience altogether. Besides the sophisticated technical solution (Arabesque decorated 18K pink gold micro-rotor), the decoration of the movement is particularly striking, with its well balanced circular Côtes de Genève, circular graining and chamfered and polished bridges, all of which combine to give this timepiece a unique feel.
Proudly bearing the legendary “Geo.Graham” signature of the master himself, this is a collection piece to discover and fully appreciate in its finest details.
The 9.85mm thick case hides more than a secret within, one that would definitely be worth unveiling first-hand.
