A tourbillon is a mechanism that turns the balance wheel, balance spring, and escapement constantly while the movement is in motion. These little details demand exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous attention, which explains why tourbillon watches are frequently associated with astronomical costs. The intricacy of the movement is what makes it desirable and sought after by connoisseurs and collectors.
