A tourbillon is an ancient cage device that's traditionally fitted to watches in order to counterbalance the effects of gravity on their precision, but even though technological advances have made it more or less obsolete, that hasn't stopped Frank Muller from making the impressively stylish Giga Tourbillon watch.

With an imposing presence that takes up over 50% of the Giga Tourbillon's face, the archaic device comes inscribed with the creator's initials, has a hand-wound power system and packs enough power in reserve to keep working for up to ten days.

These days, tourbillons are mostly decorative, but the Giga Tourbillon may change the way people feel towards the ancient device.
