Inspired by the Foundation Pocket Watch, the first time-piece to leave the Speake-Marin workshop 15 years ago, which gave birth to the Speake-Marin design and brand.
The strikingly unique tourbillon cage generates a technical animation that captivates the eye and assures the highest level of mechanical precision. The Magister Tourbillon with its enamel dial, blued steel hands, platinum automatic micro-rotor, hand finishing and iconic Speake-Marin cage and case epitomizes Speake-Marin’s watch design and swiss watchmaking at its finest and most precise.
Is there any more fascinating sight than a tourbillon as it carves its rotations, completing one revolution each minute. Speake-Marin recognises this prowess and presents the Magister Tourbillon. One of the most demanding mechanisms a watchmaker can attempt, while the tourbillon may have been invented more than two centuries ago to improve timekeeping precision, it is its striking visual aspect that appeals so strongly to this most British of Swiss watch brands. Crowned with the Speake-Marin topping tool logo, the tourbillon turning inside its cage animates the enamel dial, and shows time moving in a most mesmerising way.
