Grandes Complications

J12 Flying Tourbillon

The Flying Tourbillon Grande Complication, styled as a comet - symbolic motif favored 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.
