One-minute Flight Carussell Blancpain Evolution Watch Reviews

Caruso is a rare and fascinating complication. It is designed to offset the perturbation of gravity caused by gravity. Blancpain reborn this device and for the first time incorporated it in a watch. Today’s Watch House brings you a one-minute flying Carrousel watch, the official model is: 00222A-1500-53B.

 As with the tourbillon, the carrousel device can offset and neutralize the deceleration and acceleration of the balance wheel caused by the gravity of the earth. The balance wheel and escapement belong to the speed regulating mechanism of the watch, and when they are in the vertical position, they are affected by gravity. However, when they are constantly rotated by the tourbillon or Carrousel, they will continuously pass through all the vertical positions to offset the travel time error.

 

More than a century after Caruso was forgotten, Blancpain has reinvented this complication and used it in watches, thus achieving a world first. Inadvertently, Carloso at the LeBrassus watch factory became the first to be equipped with a frame that exactly completes one revolution in one minute. The tourbillon contains a rotating frame; in contrast, Caruso consists of a platform, and the balance wheel and its bridge rotate like a carousel’s Trojan.

 

From the front of the watch we can know that the watch uses a hollow design, we can observe the precise movement of the internal movement from the front. And this watch is different from the ordinary skeleton watch, and the side of the watch is also designed with sapphire crystal glass, which is very rare in all watches.

 The watch is equipped with a black alligator strap with rubber lining. The watch uses a folding buckle design, the same material and case, are made of 18K white gold.

 

The sides of the watch are also designed with sapphire crystal glass, which is lean and clear. I believe that there are not many opportunities to watch the movement of the watch from this angle. The thickness of the watch is 13.5 millimeters, which makes the wrist worn with a certain thickness.

 

The lugs of this watch are also made of 18K white gold, and the lugs are 23 mm apart and waterproof to 30 meters. Hollow sword-shaped pointer design, such a design has an unparalleled appeal to friends who have a strong internal device of the watch. Hollow is so thorough that such watches are rare.

 

The watch’s one-minute flying Carrousel tourbillon device is located at 12 o’clock in the middle of the watch. Friends who bought the bag can watch the tourbillon at all times.

 

The 18K white gold watch’s lugs are perfectly curved.

 

The bottom of the watch also uses a sapphire crystal glass back, and the lower bridge is decorated with hollow enamel. The upper bridge decoration process is derived from sub-micro particles and micro-engraving technology.

 

Summary: Finally, we need to say that the watch uses a manual winding movement, which is equipped with a 22T movement, a movement thickness of 6.16 mm, and a movement diameter of 32 mm. It can provide 120 hours of power when the movement is fully wound, making it a long-powered watch. (Picture / text
