“An Ensemble of the Most Exquisite 100 Tourbillons Exhibition”

Worth up to RM100 Million at KLCC

Malaysia’s leading watch specialist is celebrating an unprecedented exhibition featuring the world’s finest tourbillons this October 2014.

On display at Sincere Fine Watches’ boutique located at Suria KLCC, “100 Tourbillons” features 100 notable tourbillions with a value of up to RM 100 million from 20 of the world’s finest and most innovative watch manufacturers such as A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Franck Muller, Roger Dubuis, Greubel Forsey and Jaeger-LeCoultre just to name a few. At a value of over MYR 100 million, the exhibition is considered one of the most extensive and comprehensive tourbillion showcases ever conceived and developed in Malaysia and Asia.

The “100 Tourbillons” pays tribute to one of the greatest and oldest horological inventions created by man – the tourbillon complication. When it was conceived around the 18th century by Abraham Louis Breguet, the tourbillon was considered a tour de force for its ability to enhance accuracy of time by defying the law of gravity. Three centuries on, the complication continues to be respected and held in high regard by collectors and watchmakers as a hallmark of watchmaking virtuosity. With the advancement of computer technology, the tourbillon has evolved into a multi-faceted mechanical masterpiece that includes traditional tourbillons, multi-axis tourbillons and flying tourbillons. 100 Tourbillons is a careful curation of some of these horological wonders.

100 Tourbillons is organized into four distinct categories namely Core Tourbillon, Multi Tourbillon, Tourbillion with Complication and Jewellery Tourbillon. The line-up includes a range of tourbillons that have broken new grounds in terms of technical mastery and honoured with awards and accolades such as the Franck Muller’s Thunderbolt Tourbillon, the world’s fastest tourbillon escapement which makes one full rotation every 5 seconds on a ceramic ball bearing. This translates to 12 rotations per minute, making it 12 times faster than the average tourbillons available in the market today.

On exhibit is also A. Lange & Söhne’s 1815 Tourbillon which completes the 1815 Collection beautifully. Breguet, inventor of the Tourbillon presents their Classique Tourbillon Extra-Thin Automatic 5377 in rose gold. Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph, Jaeger-Le-Coultre’s Duomètre Sphérotourbillon, Roger Dubuis’ Excalibur Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon and an independent brand, Greubel Forsey, with their award winning Double Tourbillon 30 Degrees Technique.

“As Asia’s luxury watch specialist, we celebrate our successful journey by paying tribute to a groundbreaking complication that continues to fascinate and inspire watchmakers and collectors today. By gathering some of the world’s finest Tourbillons in one place, we bring horology accessible to the public, and hopefully inspire and cultivate an appreciation for watchmaking amongst the public.” remarks Mr Kingston Chu, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Sincere Watch Limited.
