Double Axis TourbillonInspired by these genius clockmakers the young german watchmaker Thomas Prescher developed for the Thomas Prescher Haute Horlogerie in 2003 the first flying Double Axis Tourbillon in a pocketwatch and in 2004 the first flying Double Axis Tourbillon with constant force in the carriage in a wristwatch. Shown at the Baselworld 2003 and 2004 in Basel, Switzerland.
Characteristic for this tourbillon is that it is turning around 2 axis. The first axis and the second axis are both turning once per minute. The whole tourbillon is powered by a special constant force mechanism, called Remontoire. Thomas Prescher invented the constant force mechanism in the carriage for the necessary power in the Double Axis Tourbillon. He has chosen the mechanism to equalize the different forces caused by wound and unwound mainspring, friction, and gravitation effects. So that even force is always supplied to the oscillation regulating system of the Double Axis Tourbillon. In addition he applies a modified system after Henri Jeanneret .
Triple Axis TourbillonThomas Prescher developed for the Thomas Prescher Haute Horlogerie in 2004 the first Triple Axis Tourbillion with constant force in the carriage in a wristwatch. Presented at the Baselworld 2004 in Basel, Switzerland in a Set of three watches. A Single Axis Tourbillon, a Double Axis Tourbillon and a Triple Axis Tourbillon.
Characteristic for this technical high-end complication is that the tourbillon is turning around 3 axis. The first axis and the second axis both complete one rotation every minute and the third axis is turning once every hour. The Triple Axis Tourbillon is powered, same as the Double Axis Tourbillion, by a special constant force mechanism, called Remontoire.
