Le Brassus Tourbillon Carrousel Red Gold by Blancpain
The "Le Brassus Tourbillon Carrousel Red Gold" (ref. 2322-3631-55b) belongs to Blancpain's "Le Brassus" range of watches. It features a dial in guilloché with white grand feu enamel outer circle and is encased in a red gold case. This timepiece was designed for men. The round case is 44.6mm in diameter, 11.9mm high and waterproofed up to 3 bar (approximately 30 m water depth). A transparent case back offers a view of the movement.
The watch is driven by a hand-wound Blancpain 2322 mechanical caliber offering a power reserve of 68 hours and indicators for hours and minutes. The watch indicates the date. As regulating organ, the caliber makes use of a flying caroussel, which works very much like a tourbillon, but it was designed to circumvent Breguet's orignal patent. Like a tourbillon, the caroussel lets the balance wheel and the escapement rotate slowly to avoid effects of the watches position and gravity on the time keeping. Today, the caroussel mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The case is worn with a brown alligator leather strap with a red gold folding clasp. Blancpain asks its official retailers to sell the watch at around 302'856 CHF. Use the "Contact Shop" button to ask an official expert of your choice for their offer."
