A brand new masterpiece from Speake-Marin, the Magister Vertical Double Tourbillon features two 60-second tourbillons linked by a limited-slip spring clutch, oven-fired enamel dial, power reserve indicator and day/night indicator.
The tourbillon has played an important role in the story of Speake-Marin. The first timepiece ever to bear the Speake-Marin name was the Foundation Watch, a hand-made pocket watch that Peter Speake-Marin equipped with a tourbillon escapement. Peter Speake-Marin recognises the tourbillon’s capacity to improve timekeeping accuracy by averaging out positional errors due to gravity. However, it is the visual aspect of this mesmerising escapement that always draws him to it.
The proportions of the generously sized 46 mm Piccadilly case, which is available in either white or red gold, have been deliberately considered, allowing both space for a large and legible time display as well as room for the tourbillons to be fully appreciated without being crammed closely together.
The Vintage Tourbillon Mk II. Like the Vintage Tourbillon, the Magister Vertical Double Tourbillon’s movement features German silver bridges, perlage and ruthenium plating. Geneva stripes covering the 3/4 plate movement differ from the status quo in that the waves run not in one direction but two, away from the centre of the plate.
