This watch is equipped with a Jaeger-LeCoultre 179 manual winding mechanical movement independently developed by the watch factory, and is equipped with the new Gyrotourbillon® ball tourbillon. The tourbillon operates through an external transmission, presenting the wearer with a sense of suspension in the air, creating a light and pleasing spectacle. The two frames of the dual-axis flying tourbillon are simple in design. The rotation time of the outer and inner frames is 1 minute and 12.6 seconds, respectively. The semi-spherical hairspring of the mechanical movement is hand-made by the Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop. It requires extremely precise technical processes to complete this extremely difficult challenge, which astounds watch enthusiasts and connoisseurs who understand the subtleties. The delicate and unique hairspring is also a symbol of the master craftsmanship with the Gyrolab® balance. The latter is paired with the iconic pallet of the Jaeger-LeCoultre workshop. Its non-circular structure cleverly reduces friction with the air. A major breakthrough in the accuracy of the watch.
