The Thomas Prescher floating tourbillon


What can you do to make the tourbillon even more precious? How about you skeletonize it until it is completely hidden in the bezel? This amazing one-off piece was made by Thomas Prescher and that little wheel in the middle there is the tourbillon mounted balance wheel. It is wound by the spinning of that flat plate on the bottom and the dials display the date. The time appears on the cylinders on the top and the ball is a three dimensional moon-phase register.

Seriously. Don’t even ask how much this costs. It’s probably not for sale and it would probably explode on your first trip to Costco. This is truly an art watch.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. That is an amazing watch! Tourbillions will always make for a great timepiece but a floating one takes it one step further. Well done.
