Created by Abraham-Louis Breguet and patented in 1801, the tourbillon is still one of the most appreciated complications in the universe of haute horlogerie. The purpose of this mechanism is certainly not purely aesthetic (although in many cases, the fashion houses that choose to equip their own timepieces place it on the dial side just to offer the opportunity to those who own it to admire it continuously): in fact, it serves to reduce the influence of terrestrial gravity on movement and, consequently, to make it more precise. In fact, it should be borne in mind that, when it was invented, wristwatches did not exist, and pocket watches were kept vertically most of the time. An incorrect distribution of the weight of the balance (frequent error, if we take into account the tools available at the time to create a timepiece) could compromise its oscillations and, in the long run, distort the spiral spring. Breguet's solution was to create a cage containing the entire regulating mechanism (rocker arm, escape wheel and more) which, by rotating on itself, compensated for the running errors in the various positions assumed by the rocker arm, making them the average between them. An "easy" but complex solution due replica watches to the very small dimensions of the various components. Now that the movements of the wrist produce the effect of a natural tourbillon, this mechanism continues to improve the performance of a watch and to represent an important Rolex replica watches, point of arrival at the level of savoir faire for the maisons capable of inserting it within their proposal .
