A top-grade complication, the tourbillon gives watchmakers the freedom to express their creativity – for women especially!

Chanel
Lady of the camellias
This house is a champion at making a tourbillon glamorous, as shown by this technical iteration of the Première in white gold, white mother-of-pearl and diamonds, mesmerising with its Camellia Flying Tourbillon calibre decorated with Gabrielle Chanel's favourite flower.

Audemars Piguet
Mega-brilliant!
When the Le Brassus manu­facture adapts its Royal Oak Concept for ladies, it does so with brio. In its 38.5mm case, the flying tourbillon sparkles with a thousand lights in an open-work decor of baguette-cut diamonds.

Franck Muller
In the pink
This year the VanguardTM collection adds the Lady Gravity hallmarked by an innovative elliptical tourbillon cage. Available in 35mm and 38mm diameters, the model is specifically designed to suit the female wrist to perfection.

Richard Mille
Tribal talisman
The independent watchmaker is offering 10 itera­tions of its new RM 71-01 Tourbillon Automatic Talisman. Conceived by designer Cécile Guenat, the watch blends decorative art, primary art and tribal inspiration.
