Black Beauty: Tourbillon Black Hole, A Space-Themed Watch Concept By Thierry Fischer
Today we make a new incursion in the world of watch designs with a new stunning, out of the ordinary wristwatch designed by Thierry Fischer, a Swiss-based designer that currently works at Etude de Style on exclusive timepieces designs.
Fischer created an amazing series of watch concepts inspired by astronomy elements like nebulas or black holes, all defined by a modern approach on the classical watch designs. From his space-themed collection, a particularly timepiece drew our attention: the Tourbillon Black Hole complication, a beautiful timepiece with a deliciously attractive dial.
As implied in the name, this watch design – 6 months to imagine- is inspired by space and in particular black holes. The three rings (hours and minutes) are designed like a vortex and the tourbillon escapement represents a nebula that is going to be inhaled. You can see a transparent disk with white points (stars): this is the disk of the seconds and it moves at the speed of 360 degrees / minutes. The time is indicated by the blue arrow. The moving tourbillon and this stars disk plus the rotating rings create a beautiful black hole effect.
The movement is mechanical and hand-wound with the power spring placed on the left side of the watch. All of this is visible thanks to a second sapphire glass.
For the moment, the price is undisclosed.
