The Viceroy Tourbillon is a wonderful example of watchmaking at its finest. Stuhrling Original sets a new level of quality and style when it comes to boardroom style timepieces; inside the solid 316L surgical grade stainless steel case is the genuine tourbillon movement: the beating heart of every mechanical watch. The dial features a richly textured guilloche solei pattern achieved using vintage German machinery, and atop it, a separate plate that is home to the individually applied Roman numerals. At 6 o’clock you will find the open heart rotating cage of the tourbillon movement – one custom designed with swan neck “S’s” for Stuhrling Original. And of course, no tourbillon timepiece would be complete without a 20mm genuine crocodile strap.
Krysterna is proprietary to Stührling Original and refers to the crystals that are used in its timepieces. Krysterna stems from the eyewear industry and has more strength over a spread surface area than sapphire. Krysterna crystals are more scratch resistant than mineral crystals and more shatter resistant than sapphire crystals.
The Tourbillon Family is part of the Tourbillon Collection, which includes some of Stuhrling Original's most incredible horologic creations. These incredible timepieces feature elegant and creative case designs with fascinating dial configurations
Summary of Features
• Movement: Manual Mechanical Tourbillon Movement
The hand-wound mechanical movement is perhaps the most classical of movements. It operates exclusively by the daily (or sometimes more often) winding of the crown to power the mainspring (the “heart” of the movement). Unlike its automatic mechanical counterpart, this type of movement does not feature a rotor. The energy source is the mainspring (a spring coiled into a tight spiral) which is wound manually by the wearer twisting the crown, usually in a clockwise direction. As time progresses, the spring begins to uncoil, releasing the energy needed to activate the various wheels and make the movement tick. Without routine winding of the crown, the hand-wound mechanical movement will eventually lose power. Thus, mechanical hand-wound movements usually require daily winding. A hand-wound movement requires greater care than almost all other types of movements because once the mainspring is fully wound, additional tension may cause it to break.
• Complications: Two Hand Tourbillon Movement
• Dial: Hydraulically Stamped Guilloche Solei Pattern
• Hands: Alpha-Style Hands
