Thomas Prescher Tourbillon Trilogy Watches
As such, he wanted to create a new type of guilloche design pattern. Look at the rear of the Tourbillon watches and notice the triangular patterns. For me, they remind me of the Triforce in the Legend of Zelda video games, and if you don't know what I am talking about, then they just look cool, ok?Going back to the front of the watch, it is easy to miss little details. Take the hands for example which are fashioned from single blocks of gold, and machined until the highly polished, faceted hands are perfect. The miniature detail is so impressive. The tourbillon care has a small plaque with what I believe is the watch's serial number. Each is individually numbered, and you know exactly how many of them came before yours; a number that is likely not to be very high.The case materials are gold or platinum, with a lot of gold in the watch itself. The dials are made of silver, which is an excellent metal for polishing and engraving.As such, the Prescher watches feature viewing windows for the flying tourbillons contained within; with a view all the way through the watch. Thomas Prescher really went to great lengths to create a new kind of flying tourbillon. One that is held in place by a single arm. On the double tourbillon the arm spins (one per a minute), and on the triple tourbillon the arm spins and rotating (once per an hour) around the tourbillon carriage. The spinning frequencies are synced to the hour and minute of the watch time itself.Rightly, the Thomas Prescher watches use the entire dial design to frame the torbillon cage window. The watch itself is nicely integrated into the dial, but very high legibility given the small size. Design inspirations come from classic 18th century guilloche machine work, and art deco. The result is a modern interpretation of classic watch maker aesthetic without running the risk of becoming dated anytime soon. In addition to the fine hand machines face of the watch, the rear is so nicely decorated it makes me want to weep. Honestly, the refinement and attention to detail are so impressive, I can't even look at most mainstream super luxury watches the same way again. Thomas Prescher seems to have that ultra meticulous attention to detail that is needed in any master watch maker.
