In 1930s German government wanted a low-cost car that
everyone could afford. At that time owning a car was a privilege of the rich,
and most manufacturers were not interested in making cheap cars. Ferdinand
Porsche designed the beetle, called Volkswagen (volks - people, wagen -
automobile). The car travelled at least 100 km/hour (60mph), consumed gasoline
less than 7 liters per 100 kilometers (40mpg), held 4 passengers, sold less
than 1,000 Reich marks.
In 2010s the global watch community has been searching for
a low-cost tourbillon watch that no one will lose this luxury product due to
cost during his or her life span. Traditionally a tourbillon watch exclusively
belongs to multi-millionaires and aristocrats. Tourbillon is one of the most advanced
horological techniques besides perpetual and repeater. There are not any watch
makers who are interested in offering affordable tourbillons. Times
International designed several tourbillons, called Volkstourbillon (people’s
tourbillon, hour and minute hands forming the letter “V” above tourbillon
flying wheel). The tourbillon keeps good time plus or minus 40 seconds per day,
running at least 36 hours after having been fully-wound, pretty appearance
exhibiting properties of luxury, thus identifying the owner’s social status,
yet sold below 900 USD.
The dial is either black or white, with porcelain luster.
These tourbillon watches are deliberately made blank without logos so that
people can unlock their imagination to think freely without any constraint.
Black dial, Roman numeral has railway track
White dial, Roman numeral is clean, minute
White dial, digital hours has red “12” and
Breguet hands, very attractive.
