High innovation with Monaco V4 Tourbillon

By far the most intricate and iconic complication of Haute Horlogerie, a tourbillon is a mechanical system for regulating the speed at which a watch beats. The Monaco V4 Tourbillon complicates this technology further, by using, in a world first, a micro-belt to drive the tourbillon. The avant-garde timepiece is equipped with an automatic linear rewinding system, and the mass is guided by a linear railroad instead of a traditional rotating system.

The V4 name derived from the V-shaped main plate on which the movement's four barrels are mounted: the 2-by-2 belt series on ball bearings are angled at +/-13 degrees, and look like the cylinders in a Formula 1 motor-racing engine. Its exclusive materials include space-grade black titanium for the case.
