Limited edition Fabergé Visionnaire 1 Flying Tourbillon watch unveiled at the 2015 Baselworld

Jewelry firm Fabergé has introduced its first complicated watch, the Visionnaire 1 Flying Tourbillon. Unveiled at the ongoing 2015 Baselworld expo, the Fabergé Visionnaire 1 watch’s design elements are inspired by the famous mysterious eggs from the Maison. Housed in a 44mm case in blue PVD-treated titanium and platinum, the timepiece features a double AR-coated sapphire crystal, a sapphire display back, and is water resistant to 30 meters. The haute horlogerie model displays the tourbillon in its most demanding version: the flying tourbillon. As if suspended in its carriage at 9 o’clock, this fascinating horological complication performs its rotations in full view.

The Fabergé Visionnaire 1 comes with a black alligator leather strap that features a blue PVD-treated titanium and platinum folding clasp. The timepiece is limited to only 15 pieces but there is no word on the price.
