More about Tourbillon Patinum Manual Wind PROTOTYPE DIAL

This is a platinum Blancpain Tourbillon 0023. It has a leather strap with a platinum tang buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. It has a pull out winding crown and a solid screw-down exhibition sapphire display Tourbillon case back engraved with "BLANCPAIN," and a serial number. The flying tourbillion and in-line escapement is visible from both the front and the solid snap down case back. The 34mm diameter solid three-body case, stepped bezel, and straight lugs, are polished. The dial is a rare prototype black with luminous Arabic numeral hour markers, and luminous pointed baton hands with luminous inserts. There is a subsidiary radial date aperture window at the 9 o'clock position, and a fan-shaped 8-day, 192-hour power reserve indicator is at 6 o'clock, both with luminous white Arabic numerals, markers, and indicator hands. It's water resistant and the 8mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This Blancpain Tourbillon 0023 has a mechanical manual winding Blancpain caliber 25 movement. It's rhodium-plated with fausses cotes and Cotes de Geneve embellishment, and it's constructed with 29 jewels, 238 components, a shock absorber device, a straight-line lever escapement, a monometallic balance that's adjusted to 5 positions, and a self-compensating flat balance spring. It includes a flying Tourbillon regulator with polished steel arms, and the mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vph (3 Hz). The Blancpain Tourbillon 0023 was introduced in 1989. It was the world's first flying tourbillon as well as the thinnest.

Testimonials

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
