Tuofei Watch Lecture Hall – Jaeger’s Unique Stunt Ball Tourbillon (Below)

I shared with you a few days ago about ‘Tuofei Watch Lecture Hall-Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unique stunt ball tourbillon (Part 1)’, and today I continue to share with you about Jaeger-LeCoultre. Some of the technical characteristics of the unique stunt ball tourbillon, our watch home will bring you more technical analysis articles in the future, I hope you pay more attention to the watch home.

Jaeger-LeCoultre second-generation ball tourbillon

 After Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the Gyrotourbillon 1 watch that shocked the altarpiece in 2004, in 2008 Jaeger-LeCoultre chose the reversible case of the Reverso watch series to carry this cutting-edge technological innovation-the ball tourbillon Gyrotourbillon 2, mounted in the new 174 movement, its biggest highlight is the configuration of the end curve cylindrical hairspring, thus creating the first ever watch with a cylindrical hairspring.

Technical characteristics
1. The core feature of the spherical tourbillon No. 2-British watchmaker John Arnold invented the end curve cylindrical hairspring, and applied for a patent in 1782. The ingenious adjustment ability of this ingenious invention has obvious advantages compared to traditional flat springs, which can ensure stable and completely isochronous operation of the hairspring, but because the production process of this hairspring is extremely complicated and requires difficult micro-mechanical processes, In the past, it was only used to make marine chronographs and large pocket watches, and it was quite difficult to apply them to watches. The Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaker applied it to the ball tourbillon to present a new concept. The most important thing is to ensure the high timing accuracy of this watch. At the same time, in order to strengthen its visual temptation, the cylinder The shape is heat-treated to give it a blue steel color;

2. The vibration frequency of the balance type hairspring system of No. 2 ball tourbillon has been increased from 21600 times / hour of No. 1 to 28800 times / hour. The balance is still made of 14K gold, and the hairspring uses the blue end curve cylinder described above. Hairspring, and the card-free technology with 14K gold adjustable weight balance. According to the timing principle, the increase of the frequency is a very effective measure for the timing accuracy of the watch. Coupled with the cardless balance spring system, the accuracy of the ball tourbillon number 2 watch is greatly improved compared to the number 1.

3. The rotation speed of the inner frame of the spherical tourbillon 2 has been increased from 1 rotation every 24 seconds to 1 rotation every 18.75 seconds, while the rotation speed of the outer frame is still maintained at one rotation every 1 minute. This setting is exactly the same as the previous one. The vibration frequency of the balance spring and hairspring system is kept consistent, and the frequency is increased, so the inner-axis tourbillon will inevitably rotate at a faster speed.

Author’s comment: Jaeger-LeCoultre enters the second generation of spherical tourbillons. This technical description is close to maturity, and Jaeger-LeCoultre has designed it as a “heterogeneous” -ball tourbillon into the classic flip-flop watch Most eye-catching
The internal hairspring of the tourbillon was improved from the first-generation top-winding Breguet hairspring to a cylindrical hairspring, and the wobble frequency was also increased from 21,600 to 28,800 per hour. The rotation speed of the inner-axis tourbillon was from 24 seconds.
The weekly speed is increased to 18.75 seconds per week, and the rotation speed of the outer shaft frame is always maintained at one week per minute.
Jaeger-LeCoultre third-generation ball tourbillon

In 2013, the 180th anniversary of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory launched the Master Grande Tradition Gyrotourbillon 3
Jubilée Tourbillon 3 Master Series Commemorative Watch, this watch is a Hybrid
The tenth masterpiece of the Large-scale Complications series of Mechanica, and the spherical tourbillon No. 3 is carried in the 176 movement.

Technical characteristics
1. One of the core features of the spherical tourbillon No. 3 is the support method of the tourbillon. The Breguet tourbillon mechanism from the previous two generations (this type of tourbillon structure is characterized by an integral frame with two upper and lower support shafts and fixed to The brackets of the splint cooperate with each other to form two-end support. It is transformed into a flying tourbillon mechanism (this type of tourbillon structure is characterized in that the overall frame only has a lower support shaft and ball bearings fixed to the splint to cooperate to form a single-end support). The purpose of the setting is obvious, that is, it can better express the extraordinary charm of the three-dimensional dynamics of the Jaeger-LeCoultre tourbillon;

2. The second core feature of the spherical tourbillon No. 3 is that following the cylindrical hairspring of the spherical tourbillon No. 2, the master watchmaker of Jaeger-LeCoultre has developed a spherical hairspring, which is equipped with two end curves to ensure The movement has more excellent timing performance. In addition, the 14K gold balance has also been treated with blue, which makes the balance spring system show endless blue temptation in operation.

Author’s comment: Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the spherical tourbillon from 2004 to 2013 for nearly ten years, which shows that this technology has gradually matured from its birth period to the mature stage.
Arguably the most iconic innovation and artistic technology of the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand. The third generation of the ball tourbillon blue ball balance spring and Breguet style improved to the flying tourbillon frame fixing methods have become the biggest highlights of this generation of products
Point, I admire Jaeger-LeCoultre’s research and development strength. It is very interesting that I happened to mature in the research and development of mechanical watch movements also in this decade. Jaeger-LeCoultre was like my mentor leading my research and development design concepts and ideas.
Although there is still a long way to go between the tourbillon I developed and Jaeger-LeCoultre’s spherical tourbillon, its success has guided me, which is most precious to me!
