Blancpain: Do you know the difference between a tourbillon and a carrousel?

Blancpain is unique in the world of watchmaking as it is the only manufacture which has mastered the art of placing a carrousel in a wristwatch. 


Carrousels were originally conceived to defy gravity and the associated rate errors when the watch is in a vertical position. A carrousel is similar to a tourbillon … discover differences …

Watch connoisseurs often get confused in trying to understand how carrousels and tourbillons are different from each other.

Fortunately, Blancpain has created two watches that are perfect vehicles for understanding the similarities and differences between carrousels and tourbillons: its Le Brassus Tourbillon Carrousel from 2013 and Basel 2015 debut of the L-evolution C Tourbillon Carrousel. This video gets to the heart of the differences and similarities between tourbillons and carrousels.
