On the Rolex calibre reference 3131, 51 components have been removed, 2 components modified and 94 components added. From 28,000 vibrations per hour, the frequency has been changed to 21,600, from 4 to 3 hertz.
The thickness of the case has been preserved, including the dial and hands. The flying tourbillon is installed on a ball-bearing. It makes one turn in 1 minute.
What enhances the appeal of the challenge and approach is that at no time we never imagined replacing the original Milgauss calibre received from his customer with a tourbillon calibre of a size compatible with the space given.
The idea was rather to keep as many original components as possible. Thus it was necessary to rework the watch plate, which still has its factory number. Then, it was necessary to "delicately" tear off the heart of the watch, its birth escapement (the balance-spring pair) in order to implant the "tourbillon cage", its new regulating organ.
Obviously, the operation created real challenges in terms of connections. Micromechanical surgery coupled with a science of finishings since it was also necessary to open a window in the dial while keeping the indexes and other initial inscriptions.
