Roger Dubuis - Excalibur Manual Double Flying Tourbillon It's been five years since the watchmaker launched its Excalibur collection and this timepiece (HK$2.43 million) showcases the brand's mechanical know-how. The 45mm platinum case houses a double flying tourbillon on its grey rhodium-plated dial and jumping hour and retrograde minute indications. The irregular black Roman numerals add a cool touch. Only 28 pieces have been produced.

Tag Heuer - The MikrotourbillonS

It is the first timepiece featuring a tourbillon - to be precise, a double tourbillon - from the brand. The fluted dial is hollowed on the left to house the two rotating tourbillon, which are responsible for time telling and timekeeping. A crown at 3 o'clock winds the watch and the chronograph, which is activated by the two pushes and indicated by the minute counter at three o'clock and the seconds counter at six o'clock.
