This system with mechanically interlinked double balances driven by a single escapement can boast a more accurate setting capacity than a conventional tourbillon, thanks in particular to the asymmetric deployment of the mainsprings in all positions, hence the name “Harmonious Oscillator”. This world first with two toothed balances exhibits a resonance effect from the first oscillations. The tourbillons run inside a cage with pure but stylised decorations.
