The flying tourbillon and celestial sky …

This Jaeger-LeCoultre flying tourbillon is cantilevered and thus held only at the underside. The whole mechanism, which consists of 73 parts, measures 12.42 millimetres in diameter and 3.85 in height. The lightweight titanium cage, placed on a lubricant-free ceramic ball bearing, is reduced to its bare essence and the 10-millimeter diameter balance wheel is fitted with four regulating screws, ten weight screws and a balance spring with Breguet over coil oscillating at 4 Hertz.

The Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication is the only watch to use a flying tourbillon to indicate sidereal time. This feature is controlled by a mechanism beneath the dial, which is itself divided in three different levels: the lowest is a disc turning once every 24 hours with a sun marking the hour at the outer end.
