Perpetual Calendar - the watch will correctly adjust for short and long months as well as 28 days of February once in 4 years.
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.
Sky Moon – The night sky of the Northern Hemisphere rotates counter clockwise on its dial, showing the angular progression of the stars relative to the meridian passage of Sirius. At the same time, the display shows the meridian passage and phases of the moon. Two hands from the center show the hours and minutes of mean solar time on a dial with Roman numerals. The complex astronomical displays rely on a system of stacked sapphire crystal discs which rotate at different speeds and create a mesmerizing impression of depth. The celestial background is a blue sapphire crystal disc in a wheel with 279 teeth. This disc reproduces the orbit of the moon. Via a planetary gear train, it also drives a subsidiary sapphire crystal disc depicting the waxing and waning of the moon in a small round aperture. Above it, in a wheel with 356 teeth, lies a transparent sapphire crystal disc which bears the sky chart on one side and an image of the Milky Way galaxy on the other. These three discs are protected by the sapphire crystal glass with an ellipse on the inside that frames the portion of the sky visible above Geneva.
