Very unique design, magnifying glass design is out of this world, 108 minutes tourbillon is especially interesting. Overall a very unique timepiece, looking forward to seeing this timepiece in person!
Thanks for the introduction Don!
It is a flying one. The big bridge is a part of the whole design remembering the GAGARIN monument. The function in the watch is somewhat like a shockabsorber not a bridge keeping the tourbillon (You would see the pin and an incablocksystem)
done. Note how the tourbillon bridge is designed around the 'Memorial to Space Flight' in Moscow:
How cool and fitting as a tribute. A great deal of thought has gone into the timing and design of the watch by Bernhard Lederer.
Great photos too Don.
but I don't like the magnifying glass over the dial. I'm also surprised there hasn't been more made from this occasion..!
Great report and fantastic pictures,
i'd love to own one of his watches and one day you never know i may get lucky. this is a great piece, but i think Poljot should have done something to commemorate the occasion.
very cool design and IMHO a fitting tribute...
great photos Don! Thank you!
