DWISS RS1 Tourbillon is a pioneering timepiece with a completely innovative time reading system. The hours are represented through a disc that runs under the multi-layered dial and fulfil the hour’s windows with a colourful continuous rotation disc. We have no hour hand to show the hours. We used a disc to create a "complication" in the watch. Besides this watch uses a tourbillon, one of the most challenging-to-make watch mechanisms, the tourbillon is a complicated movement that makes the escapement turn around its own axis, designed to counter the effects of gravity.
