World’s first plastic-case Tourbillon, by EmaS

Recently, I introduced a stylish Milan-based brand called EmaS. The company recently updated their Facebook account with a picture of one their latest model, a Chinese tourbillon, which will only be produced in 4 picese, sold at USD 2,500 each.

This tourbillon is housed in a polymer case, which probably makes it a World first, if we don’t count the USD 3,000 Swatch Diaphane, which is superseded by the Emas: the Swatch used the Karussell system, while the Chinese movement on the EmaS is a true tourbillon.

Compared to the tourbillon, the Karussell uses a slightly simpler construction. There have been attempts by tourbillon spin doctors to link the Karussell with cheap watchmaking, but Master Watchmaker Vincent Calabrese designed prestigious Karussells for high-end Swiss brand Blancpain, where he now works as a chief designer.
