Invented in 1795 for pocket watches, the tourbillon brought a clever solution, but very difficult to implement. The Tourbillon watches device consists of a movable cage in which the organs regulating the movement, namely the balance, the hairspring and the escapement, take place. Rotating without stopping, the tourbillon have a regular rotation over 360 °, thus cancelling, over time, the effects of gravity on the regulating system, and therefore on the precision of the movement. Vacheron Constantin tourbillon watches are therefore extremely precise.
