The Blancpain Carrousel Volant Une Minute


(The Blancpain Carrousel Volant Une Minute)

The Blancpain Carrousel Volant Une Minute watch is a new complicated watch from Blancpain that confirms the passion for inventive haute horlogerie that made the brand a untouchable reference among collectors. This watch’s remarkable movement was inspired by the carrousel, an invention of Danish watchmaker Bahne Bonniksen. Created in its original form in 1892, the carrousel was to count the effects of gravity upon the escapement of a timepiece. The carrousel has been meticulously engineered to complete a single revolution each minute, another factor that makes it remarkable; traditional carrousels completed a single rotation at an unspecified rate that could vary between 27 and 42 minutes.
