Escape II Carbon Yellow

Purnell 2020

Men's

Tourbillons and nothing but tourbillons is the philosophy behind Purnell; a passion that began with the brand's namesake, Cecil Purnell, and is perpetuated by his grandson, Jonathan. Confirmation comes in the form of this Escape II in carbon. The cages of the two spherical tri-axial tourbillons or "Spherions" rotate in opposite directions at the incredibly high speeds of once every 8, 16 and 30 seconds. Behind this technical tour de force and world-first is master watchmaker Eric Coudray at TEC Ebauches, winner of the Prix Gaïa 2012 in the Artisan-Creation category. The six mainsprings housed inside the four parallel-mounted barrels of the fully exposed movement store 32 hours of power reserve, measured on an indicator at 9 o'Clock.
