Tourbillon Heure Minute

From complication to simplicity; the Tourbillon Hour Minute AK-02 is the second timepiece created by AkriviA, and it is all about the purity of time. While the tourbillon is not traditionally considered a complication, it remains a challenging mechanism to implement. When built well, the tourbillon enhances the chronometric performance of a timepiece by averaging out positional errors.

Even though the AK-02 lacks an obvious seconds hand, the one-minute rotation of the tourbillon cage effectively functions as a hyper-precise seconds indication. The dial display focuses on simplicity, but simple doesn’t mean easy. Hours and minutes by hand, hyper-precise seconds by tourbillon. AkriviA is Greek for “precision” — the Tourbillon Hour Minute AK-02 is precision embodied.

The spacious dial of the Tourbillon Heure Minute is ideal for showcasing the hand-finishing skills of our watchmakers
