Poljot-International have once again brought the tourbillon within the reach of collectors, with their new Glass Tourbillon ‘Alexander The Great’ timepiece.
Back in 2013, Poljot-International in Germany under the name ‘Basilika’ produced a glass tourbillon in a limited edition of 100 pieces in steel and gold-plated cases. They were quickly sold and are now among the most successful models for the brand. For the 30th anniversary of the brand, it was decided to re-produce this successful model in a limited edition of 30 pieces each. This model bears the name ‘Alexander the Great’.
The tourbillon cage is placed at the 6-hour position and the arrow bridge inside that moves the 60 seconds can also be used as a seconds counter. Many small parts such as the balance wheel, escapement and wheels are always visible when in motion, giving the magical feeling of a small mechanical machine.
The beauty of the movement, its curved skeletonised bridges and tourbillon cage are fully visible through the sapphire crystal dial. The back of the watch also has a transparent glass and allows a wonderful view of the back of the skeletonised movement.
At the 3 o’clock position there is a day & night function. When the sun appears fully in a small round window, it means noon time, when the moon appears fully in this position, it means midnight time. At the 9 o’clock position is the GMT function. By turning the crown counterclockwise, it is possible to set the second time zone to 24h mode. The classic stainless steel case, IP rose gold plated, is water resistant up to 5 atm.
