Reaping the whirlwind: Bianchet Flying Tourbillon Sport GMT

March 21, 2024

Bianchet Flying Tourbillon Sport GMT seamlessly blends timeless design with cutting-edge functionality

For watch enthusiasts seeking a unique blend of cutting-edge design and technical prowess, Bianchet is a name worth knowing. This young Swiss brand, founded in 2017 by a passionate couple, Rodolfo and Emmanuelle Festa Bianchet, who share a passion for watches and a love for modern aesthetics, is making waves with their luxury timepieces.

Tourbillon Takes Center Stage: Bianchet doesn’t shy away from complexity. Their speciality is the tourbillon, a mesmerising watchmaking marvel that cancels out the effects of gravity on a watch’s accuracy. Their tonneau-shaped cases, a modern twist on a classic form, house stunning dials often crafted from carbon fibre composite. But beneath the modern flair lies a subtle nod to tradition. The golden ratio, a mathematical principle linked to beauty and balance, influences the watch’s proportions.

Limited Edition Exclusivity: Unlike established brands with vast collections, Bianchet focuses on meticulous craftsmanship. Their current offerings included two models – the Tourbillon 1.618 and the Flying Tourbillon Grande Date B1.618. However, their latest release, the Bianchet Flying Tourbillon Sport GMT, at the Beau-Rivage Hotel in Geneva from 9 to 13 April 2024, promises a new level of sophistication for the jet-setting watch aficionado.

Dual Time Zone Tracking: The 24-hour GMT dial features a captivating rotating globe that keeps track of your reference time alongside the local time. An intuitive function selector simplifies setting and adjusting both times.

Haute Horlogerie Expertise: The heart of the watch features a flying tourbillon movement, meticulously crafted and assembled by Bianchet in Switzerland. Every detail reflects the brand’s commitment to quality, from the impeccable hand-polished titanium finishes to the luminescent hour markers and hand-applied lacquer accents.

Sophisticated Style: Available in a 43 mm barrel-shaped case crafted from either titanium or titanium-dust-high-density carbon, the Flying Tourbillon Sport GMT offers a range of colour options. Each watch comes with two vulcanized rubber straps. Sporty yet sophisticated, the Bianchet Flying Tourbillon Sport GMT is a statement piece.

With a price point of 75 500 CHF (excl. taxes), it joins Bianchet’s existing collection in the high-end category. For more information on the Flying Tourbillon Sport GMT, including a chance to view it in person at the exclusive event in Geneva, visit Bianchet’s website.
