"My project on creating mechanical sculptures will be called Wervelwind. ‘The Tourbillon’ is the second model that I’ve made for Wervelwind. This specific model is an interpretation of the 18th century invention of Abraham Louis Breguet, to prevent time errors in pocket watches that were carried vertically. I will make a limited amount of 94 sculptures of ‘The Tourbillon’, all numbered and delivered with a certificate. After this, ‘The Tourbillon’ model will not be produced anymore.
With this project I hope to make you experience the magic of technical horology, like I did for the first time in Italy. By inspiring others with the movement of the sculptures, I intend to open a world beyond mechanical limits. Where time is limited, the construction of time is a never-ending story, written by movement".
