deLaCour Reflect Tourbillon



The new case for the Reflect Tourbillon is the latest creation of deLaCour watches. An incredible balance between avant-gardism and tradition, combining a strong character and a timeless design.

The concept of this new shape is based on the design principles and know-how of the iconic elliptical-shape of this case created by deLaCour. It preserves the elongated outlines of the case and the lugs which make the originality of the brand. This model becomes more classical with its rectangular shape and softened corners. This limited edition of 9 titanium pieces, appear to illuminate from within thanks to the corundum tubes and an opening on the left side of the case.

This Tourbillon was developed with strict specifications and the expertise of a recognized team of Swiss watch manufacturers; giving birth to a contemporary designed manufacture caliber. Its outstanding cylindrical construction, extremely complex in its realization, ensures a perfect visual harmony of this timepiece. An exceptional piece is born with a chassis that appears to be weightless. The four rigid tubes that compose its structure expose masterfully the interior of the watch and thereby reveals the gear train in all its purity.

This new model demonstrates the expertise of deLaCour and features two new technical advances:

First, the delicate insertion of the cylinders, adjusted to a perfectly perpendicular axe structure performing as bridges, gives a maximum
rigidity to the movement.

Then, the extra gloss lacquered movement plates reflecting like mirrors, tastefully reflect the light. This is a novelty in modern watchmaking, bringing transparency to the movement, while accentuating the effect of weightlessness.

The flank of this timepiece, like its plates, reflects the heart of the watch. This Tourbillon movement features a manual winding and 95 hours power reserve. Its Superluminova skeleton triangular pointed hands allow easy reading of the hours and minutes.

A hand-stitched crocodile strap stylishly completes this timepiece. In terms of contemporary watchmaking, this watch radically reinterprets the formal technical and aesthetic approach of a “Grande Complication” timepiece.
