Tourbillon 55
  • Our fleeting, fast-paced and forward-moving lives are replete with numbers. Whether we realise it or not, we all depend on numbers. Everything that surrounds us on a daily basis can be traced back to a number: a date of birth, a ticket, a telephone or tramway number, the number of parking spaces, the pin code of a bank card, etc.

    The premise of numerology is that all phenomena in the universe are interrelated by one common numerical pattern. In this system, odd numbers are considered stronger and more masculine, while the more feminine even numbers are considered gentler and more acquiescent. If an odd number is added to an even number, the result is an odd number, demonstrating that male, odd numbers dominate. This is why odd numbers have leading, overwhelmingly male characteristics and even numbers, managerial and intuitive characteristics.

    The number 5 is one of the most ancient, for it appeared in primitive society when primitive man had to count objects. The first numbers did not have names and were shown with the help of fingers: one set of five fingers equalled the number 5, two such sets equalled 10, etc.In numerology, numbers with two identical figures, such as 11, 22, 33, 44, 66, and so on, contain strong energy, which has a particular influence on the life of the person with whom they are associated. The number 55 is considered to possess powerful male energy. Priests in Ancient Babylon saw a combination of two energies in this number: the beginning of everything and its destruction. A person associated with the number 55 will destroy all the enemies in his way. In the Chinese Book of Changes, the 55th hexagram symbolises abundance and the start of a very successful, productive and stable period in life.

  • Konstantin Chaykin has created an astounding clock named Tourbillon 55, equipped with a one-minute tourbillon. Its main feature is its one-minute “whirlwind”, which crowns the design of its gear train. Apart from illustrating the complexity of the movement, the one-minute tourbillon performs an additional function, replacing the seconds hand. The anchor is located inside a mobile platform containing the balance at its centre. It completes a full rotation around its axis in exactly one minute. The movement of the clock is composed of hundreds of miniature parts assembled with the help of a special microscope. This unique movement contains 11 jewels and 6 precision bearings held in place by rings with gilded collets and screw fastenings. Located on the drum of the spring is a device (in the shape of a Maltese cross) that limits the winding torque of the spring to enhance the accuracy of the movement's operation.

    What's more, this complex movement is only 15 cm tall. The case chosen to show its perfection is made from precious  woods and nickel-plating brass.
