Tourbillon - compensates for differences in rate caused by a watch adopting different positions. The principle is to mount the balance and escapement in a rotating cage. The balance and escapement rotate around their common axis going through all positions to average out the errors. Tourbillon cages or platforms usually rotate once per minute but 4 minute and six minute tourbillons are also found. The Tourbillon complication is an extremely difficult accomplishment to achieve and generally demands a high premium.
Jumping hours– Instead of a hand continuing to move, a “jumping display” uses numerals seen through an aperture, which instantly change on the hour . The circular motion of hands has been adopted by our societies as the most “natural” way to convey the passing of time, no doubt because it recalls the rotation of the planets and the apparent movement of the sun, our first timekeeper. There are, however, other ways to indicate time, such as a “jumping display”, typically used to show the hour. It exchanges the hand for a disc inscribed with the hour numerals, visually similar to a calendar aperture. However, unlike certain calendars, each new indication is instantaneous. On each hour, the mechanism causes the disc to make one jump forward, and then blocks it in this position until the following hour.
