GRANDES COMPLICATIONS

J12 Flying Tourbillon

The Flying Tourbillon Grande Complication, styled as a comet - a symbolic motif favoured by Mademoiselle Chanel - is the quietly ticking, near hidden heart of this J12 watch. The upper bridge has been removed from the carriage to give the comet an impression of weightless rotation.
