The Cintrée Curvex™ Imperial Tourbillon Baguette captures the best of both high jewelry and haute horology in a singularly exquisite timepiece that transcends convention by incorporating a complex “flying” tourbillon escapement nestled within an 18kt gold case framed by 38 invisible set VVS diamond baguettes.



Creating a tension between mechanics and aesthetics, the Imperial Tourbillon is a stunning piece of jewelry that also happens to keep track of the time. Housed inside the slender 9.35mm arch of the Curvex case beats a Franck Muller manual wind tourbillon caliber FM 2001. When fully wound this elegant mechanism will power the hypnotic rotation of the one-minute tourbillon for 60 hours. 

Franck Muller’s tourbillon is a masterpiece of precision watchmaking, but this complication does require more energy than a more traditional escapement. In the case of the Imperial tourbillon, Franck Muller developed an innovative solution for maintaining & delivering optimal torque to the system - even when the timepiece reaches the limits of its power reserve. This novel solution uses an intermediate pinion that engages directly with the outside of the tourbillon cage and ensures improved stability as well as improved chronometric performance. Complementing the austere beauty of the exterior are the multiple finishes applied to each internal component including engraving, beveling, circular graining, and sunburst brushing among others.


The Cintrée Curvex™ Imperial Tourbillon Baguette is available in 18kt rose and white gold in a variety of colorways and stands out for its elegant yet minimalist design that transforms the Cintree Curvex Imperial Tourbillon into a timeless timekeeper and a graceful accessory that is sure to be your top choice when you want to look your best for those special occasions.
