Chopard Engine One Tourbillon Rose Gold Limited Edition Watch For High-End Drivers
swiss replica watches aaa+ Before there were car engines, there were watch engines (that we typically just call “movements”). Compare the two though and you’ll learn some pretty amazing things about timepieces. Not that an automobile’s combustion engine is a precise analog to a watch’s spring-powered mechanism, but it is interesting to see how they perform in relation to one another. Watch movements are expected to not only operate for long periods of time without rest, but also to be extremely accurate in the process. At 99% accuracy, a wristwatch movement would be considered extremely inaccurate. Most mechanical movements are at least 99.999% accurate, even after running for years on end. So having to service them each several years doesn’t seem like that big of a deal given those stats.

Having said all that, it typically goes that if you love watches, you also love cars – and there are no shortages of timepieces that celebrate both worlds. Less common are watches with movements that mimic car engines in terms of design (and even function to an extent in some models). Brands such as BRM, TAG Heuer, Hublot, and of course Chopard have all delved into the interesting world of watch “car” movements. The Engine One Tourbillon by Chopard is a beautiful example of this.

The uniquely shaped case is somewhere between rectangular and round and is extremely wearable being 35.4mm wide by 44.4mm tall. In 18k rose gold, the Engine One Tourbillon is much warmer in tone compared to its titanium cousin that was originally released back in 2010, but loses a bit of the “cold machine” look that allowed the original to stand out as being unique. Several years later and the Engine One Tourbillon is perhaps more well known, and the engine-inspired mechanical movement is sharp as ever.
A clever design feature on the watch is the use of reverse sapphire crystal applied hour markers to create a simple way of reading the time on what is essentially a face with no dial. The hour indicators appear to float over the hands, which further creates a three-dimensional look. The movement itself has a power reserve indicator on it for the manually wound movement that has 60 hours of power reserve.
Chopard produces the in-house made caliber L.U.C 04.01-L tourbillon movement inside the watch. The tourbillon doubles as a seconds indicator and is placed at 6 o’clock. The ability to see right through the movement where the tourbillon is mounted offers a stunning visual treat and a way of examining the complex feature. Rose gold mixes well with the blued indicators and the titanium-colored movement helps remind wearers of the automotive-inspired nature of the watch. Attached to the Engine One Tourbillon is one of my favorite watch straps, an extremely comfortable, hand-sewn alligator strap, here in chestnut brown.
Chopard dutifully continues their relationship with racing inspired watches and will produce just 100 pieces of the limited edition Engine One Tourbillon in the rose gold case.
