Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Flying Tourbillon

Roger Dubuis describes this watch as "skeletonised to the extreme". Limited to a run of just 88 pieces, it's been expertly manufactured in Switzerland from DLC-coated titanium with an open-worked dial and exhibition case back that exposes the intricacies of its 510SQ complication and small-scale flying tourbillon - a highly complicated feat of horology. The hands and indices are made from 18-karat white gold with Super-LumiNova® for legibility.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon

From Jaeger-LeCoultre's elegant 'Master' collection, this 'Ultra Thin' watch measures just 11.3mm in depth – an amazing feat when you consider how much impressive engineering is contained within the slim 18-karat pink gold case. It holds a powerful Swiss-made 978G-calibre automatic movement with a 45-power reserve, in addition to a gold-bridged tourbillon visible both at the clean 'eggshell' beige dial and under the sapphire crystal exhibition case back. Finishing touches include a precise small seconds track, polished and brushed Dauphine hands and a smart alligator strap.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon Automatic

Unveiled at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Genève, Vacheron Constantin's watch is part of its 'Traditionnelle' line - a collection which "pays tribute to the craftsmanship and expertise passed on from generation to generation". Engineered with an intricate hand-assembled tourbillon that's one of the most complex complications known to horologists, it's housed in polished 18-karat pink gold and affixed to a handsome brown alligator strap. You can observe the precise workings of the 188-part 2160 automatic movement through the sapphire case back.

Ulysse Nardin Blast Automatic Tourbillon Skeleton

Ulysse Nardin’s ‘Blast’ watch comes from its ‘Executive’ collection, and is a striking example of the kind of modern, innovative design with which Ulysse Nardin has become universally associated in recent years. Set on a rubber strap with a case made from 18-karat rose gold and titanium, it is powered by an in-house movement that is showcased beneath a skeletonised dial. It is certainly worthy of close inspection for the flying tourbillon at six o’clock (note the silicon balance spring, anchor and escapement wheel – Ulysse Nardin has always been at the forefront of silicon’s usage in watchmaking) and the micro-rotor at 12 o’clock, made from platinum and coated in rose gold. The two elements are highlighted within the X-shaped dial design, the brand’s signature motif.

Vacheron Constantin Overseas Tourbillon Automatic

A new addition to Vacheron Constantin’s ‘Overseas' collection, this watch pays tribute to one of the most renowned complications in watchmaking - the tourbillon, which fights gravity's pull and enhances time-telling precision. Housed in a 42.5mm stainless steel case, the model's automatic calibre 2160 features a lengthy 80-hour power reserve and mesmerising 60-second mechanism in the brand’s iconic Maltese cross carriage. It's hallmarked with the prestigious Geneva Seal, visible through the exhibition case back, and while fitted on a brushed stainless steel bracelet with polished edges, it can also be worn on the included alligator and rubber straps.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Automatic Tourbillon

Jaeger-LeCoultre's 'Geophysic' watch is modeled after a legendary chronometer introduced in 1958 as part of the International Geophysical Year, which is celebrated for advancements in science and exploration. Designed with a platinum case, it's powered by a calibre 948 automatic tourbillon movement and equipped with Gyrolab to reduce air friction and ensure precision. The beautifully detailed map decorating the face features the North Pole - an homage to the USS Nautilus expedition. It has a supple leather strap and single crown to easily adjust the world time disks when travelling.
