Tourbillon "Pour le Mérite"
The watch takes its name from the German order "Pour le Mérite" and boasts a design which has never before been used for a wristwatch: the train is driven via chain and fusée. The highly complicated mechanism optimizes the accuracy of the watch and can be watched through an aperture in the three quarter plate. An intricately assembled planetary gear system guarantees stability during winding. The model was produced as a limited edition from 1994 until 1998 (150 pieces being produced in gold).
