Bernhard Lederer Universe - Gagarin Tourbillon


In 1961 Yuri Gagarin was the first man to journey into outer space, when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on  April 12. In 2011, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this historical event, the German watchmaker Bernhard Lederer, founder of the BLU (Bernhard Lederer Universe) watch brand, created the Gagarin Tourbillon, an incredible 50-piece limited edition watch featuring a 60 second flying orbital tourbillon that rotates counterclockwise around the dial in 108 minutes, which is the time Gagarin took to orbit the earth in the Vostok capsule. 

Now, in 2013, Bernhard Lederer goes even further with a new version of the Gagarin Tourbillon introducing a stunning gold dial engraved with a representation of the Earth with the oceans available in either galvanic blue or black. The outer dial, representing the space, is made in synthetic diamond.
The case of the Gagarin Tourbillon incorporates an integrated rotating magnifying glass that allows more detailed appreciation of the tourbillon and details on the dial. The magnifying glass is locked in place by a catch inspired by a hatch on the Vostok capsule.
The tourbillon cage is formed by the word “VOSTOK” spelt vertically and curved around its perimeter
The diameter of the pink or white gold case is 42 mm, 46.5 mm if you consider the magnifying glass ring. Height is 15 mm.
The hand finished mechanical movement of the Gagarin Tourbillon is hand wound with three mainspring barrels offering a power reserve of approximately 80 hours. The movement was fully designed, developed and manufactured in-house.
The new Gagarin Tourbillon is, like the first one, a limited edition of 50 pieces. Price exceeding CHF 260,000.
