The principle is to mount the balance and escapement in a rotating cage. The balance and escapement rotate around their common axis going through all positions to average out the errors. Tourbillon cages or platforms usually rotate once per minute but 4 minute and 6 minute Tourbillons are also found. The Tourbillon complication is an extremely difficult accomplishment to achieve and generally demands a high premium. 100% original and in great condition.
