The increasing popularity of complication means that watchmakers must continue to raise the dramatic standards of this most fascinating escapement. In 2012, Farmland released the Thunderbolt Tourbillon. By 2015, they raised the bar again and launched an oversized architectural tourbillon in the shape of the Vanguard Tourbillon series .
The tourbillon used to be one of many tests to prove your strength as a watchmaking brand, but at some point in 2010, everyone and their mothers started making tourbillons. The sheer drama and emotional power of the tourbillon is enough to attract even the most cynical watch collector, and the increasing popularity of complications means that watchmakers must continue to raise the dramatic standards of this most fascinating escapement. In 2012, Farmland released the Thunderbolt Tourbillon. By 2015, they raised the bar again with the super-large architectural tourbillon in the Vanguard Tourbillon series. Today, Franck Muller Thunderbolt Tourbillon and Vanguard Gravity both set the standard for an extremely attractive tourbillon.

It is not for no reason that Franck Muller is called the “master of complication”. After three years of research and development, the French watchmaker and master watchmaker Pierre-Michel Golay collaborated to conceive the “world’s fastest tourbillon”.
Franck Muller Thunderbolt Tourbillon: The fastest tourbillon in the world
The world’s fastest tourbillon escapement, named Franck Muller Thunderbolt Tourbillon, is powered by four barrels, which provide the necessary energy for the tourbillon frame and make the ceramic bearing rotate once every 5 seconds. Therefore, compared with the traditional tourbillon, the tourbillon which rotates 12 times per minute becomes a very exciting and completely fascinating complication.
In a traditional tourbillon, the escape wheel is carried around a fixed fourth wheel by a tourbillon holder, and the tourbillon holder itself is driven by the third wheel. Thunderbolt Tourbillon does not require a fixed fourth round. The escape wheel does not move with the rest of the escapement, but inverted, and the entire escape wheel is fixed on the periphery of the tourbillon.
More importantly, because the inverted escape wheel replaces the fixed front wheel. This setup consumes much less energy than a traditional tourbillon, so Farmland can add a multiplier gear to the drive train to accelerate the tourbillon without affecting the integrity of the balance wheel.
Franck Muller fake Thunderbolt Tourbillon also uses extremely light materials to reduce energy consumption. The Franck Muller Thunderbolt Tourbillon is 12 times faster than a regular tourbillon watch, using the patented Franck Muller escapement, with a fixed escape wheel and reverse anchor and balance wheel, with an internal Breguet hairspring-in short, A model tourbillon with extraordinary provenance. Franck Muller Calibre FM2025T mechanical manual winding tourbillon movement is completely internally designed and conceptualized. Although it is the fastest tourbillon in the world, its beat rate is still a semi-casual 21,600 vph, with a total running time of 60 hours. chain.
The hollowed-out Franck Muller Thunderbolt Tourbillon is decorated with a combination of engraving, rhodium-plating, texture and hand-chamfering, and is housed in a selection of 55.05 mm Cintrée Curvex precious metal cases. swiss luxury watches
