    BUBEN&ZORWEG TOURBILLONS
    OFF TO PASTURES NEW

    WHY TOURBILLONS?

    Gravitational forces have a constant effect on the clockwork of a mechanical clock. For example, the momentum of the balance wheel increases in the direction of the gravitational pull, and decreases in the opposite direction. Even though this effect is minimal, it still negatively impacts the precision of the instrument. The tourbillon counteracts the influence of gravity by permanently rotating key components of the clockwork. This is particularly useful for clocks, in which the balance wheel is not subject to movement like that in a watch. In addition, a tourbillon is of course a complication which fascinates all mechanical clock enthusiasts, making it something special to own such a clock. The design and manufacture of a tourbillon bears witness to the exceptional competence and skill of the manufacturer.

    THE FIRST GENERATION

    BUBEN&ZORWEG presented the first table clock with tourbillon in 2005 - the Pantheon Grande Réserve Tourbillon, whose limited 25 piece run was quickly sold out. The same was true of the Pythagoras World Time Tourbillon (2006) - as the fi rst mechanical table clock with world time and tourbillon it sold out soon after the launch. Both models were testimony to BUBEN&ZORWEG's master craftsmanship, and their passion for offering unique and innovative products was enthusiastically welcomed by lovers of fi ne timepieces around the world.

    THE SECOND GENERATION

    BUBEN&ZORWEG presented the ELLIPSE GRAND REVERS DOUBLE TOURBILLON in 2007, a FINE TIMEPIECE whose complication, the double tourbillon, attracted attention from experts in the world of clock making. No other serial clock manufacturer had dared to attempt such an ambitious project. The double tourbillon was designed by BUBEN&ZORWEG's Atelier d'Horlogerie, where it was also manufactured. 157 individual components were laboriously installed and the system was aligned before subjecting the masterpiece to 500 hours of excellence control. The double tourbillon is a redundant system in which both systems function independent of each other and yet have an effect on each other - with the result that gravitational forces can practically be discounted, once more increasing accuracy.

    THE THIRD GENERATION

    BUBEN&ZORWEG presented the third generation of pioneering tourbillons in Basel in 2009 - the OBJET DE TEMPS I and II and their Orbit Tourbillons, to great acclaim from afi cionados. They showcase the movement of time at the place where it is most clearly articulated - at the tip of the minute hand. The Orbit Tourbillon makes a full circuit around the dial every hour, turning on its own axis once every minute in a masterpiece of watch making technology - harmonic imagery symbolising chronological cycles. Absolute precision is the measurable result of this fascinating, unique innovation, which required all our expertise and a great deal of perfectionism for the diffi cult taskof balancing the minute hand. The boldness needed by BUBEN&ZORWEG to become the only manufacturer of large clocks with built in tourbillons makes us the fi rst stop for passionate collectors of exclusive masterpieces. Our passionate commitment to perfection and innovation has once again stretched the limits of what is possible, redefining the terms true quality and first class masterpiece.

    BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY: LUXURY SAFES FROM BUBEN&ZORWEG

    The topic of protection and safeguarding quickly becomes the centre of attention when it comes to safekeeping luxury watches, precious valuables or irreplaceable documents. A matter of course, then, for BUBEN&ZORWEG to take up this challenge. Security solutions appropriate to the level of security in question are therefore integrated in virtuallyevery masterpiece. The company has implemented unique, high-end security solutions with the same passion for innovation and master craftsmanship that is so typical of BUBEN&ZORWEG. This is particularly apparent in the use of materials such as RELASTAN®, which was developed by renowned company Kaba AG in close collaboration with technical universities and material testing institutes.

    RELASTAN® is up to 50 per cent lighter and less voluminous than conventional materials used for armoured protection without compromising any of the features critical to security -- a huge advantage in view of the load-bearing capacity of conventional ceiling designs. Take the locking system of the X-007, for instance: BUBEN&ZORWEG banks on PAXOS® compact, a system proven many thousands of times around the world and protector of many billions throughout Europe -- from gold safes in national banks to the vaults of banknote prints. Duplicating an independent set of all the main elements relevant to security not only increases the level of security but also achieves a statistical lifetime of 15 million hours. Further features include a maintenance-free mechanical system, integrated protection against drilling and trouble-free integration in alarm systems.

    The choice of the best possible solution with regard to security related aspects of BUBEN&ZORWEG luxury safes is supported by themaster craftsmanship with which the safes are integrated in OBJECTS OF TIME® or, as is the case with the X-007, in the form of sophisticated standalone luxury safes. Hand-selected woods, finest Italian leather and high quality metal appliqués let you forget that a safe is defined primarily by its purpose -- as a masterpiece of craftsmanship from the House of BUBEN&ZORWEG, each safe can also be an attractive element in any discerning ambience. Security can be this beautiful, and beauty can feel this safe.

    TIME MOVER® WATCH WINDER - A MUST-HAVE FOR EVERY LOVER OF FINE TIMEPIECES

    There are three good reasons why lovers of valuable automatic watches simply cannot do without a TIME MOVER® watch winder:

    NECESSITY

    Automatic watches have, on average, a power reserve of approximately 36 hours before the movement stops. As with all high performance mechanisms, motion is the 'natural' state of a movement. Standstill can cause, among other problems, lubricants to solidify, which in turn results in a lost of precision and a need for laborious repair work. It is therefore good practice to store automatic watches not being worn in a watch winder to keep them running in a watch winder such as the TIME MOVER® from BUBEN&ZORWEG represents in perfection.

    CONVENIENCE

    The TIME MOVER® watch winder provides the correct momentum even for large collections of precious automatic watches. The running maintenance for time, date, moon phase, time zones and perpetual calendars is assumed by the TIME MOVER®, preventing you from having to recalibrate after every standstill. Experience the comfort of knowing that each watch in your collection is accurately set and ready to be worn.

    PRESENTATION

    Double the pleasure of owning valuable watches by presenting them in a befitting environment. BUBEN&ZORWEG offer a wide range of TIME MOVER® watch winder units, from small two-piece sets to large, modular, multi-functional pieces for the passionate lover of fine timepieces. Their common denominators are optimal protection and a sumptuous ambience created by master craftsmen for the presentation of your valuable collection.

    From our first day of business (1995) BUBEN&ZORWEG has been devoted to exploring the limits of technology and craftsmanship with exciting new masterpieces. We design and manufacture detailed pieces that refl ect our passionfor innovative technology, ground-breaking design and perfect artistry for lovers of unique masterpieces.

    After the founding of the company in 1995, BUBEN&ZORWEG reached their first milestone with the launch of the TIME MOVER® in cooperation with our partner company ELMA. Within a short time this pioneering technology became the marketleader in its field. Developments such as the Collector 64 or theCollector's salon opened new dimensions for the TIME MOVER®; whether for 1 or 1,000 watches, BUBEN&ZORWEG has the optimal solution.

    The advent in 2005 of BUBEN&ZORWEG's FINE TIMEPIECES was the first major step on the road to becoming a manufacturer of mechanical clocks. The goal from the beginning was to use innovation and master craftsmanship to create exclusive pieces that were and are without comparison. Outstanding feature is our focus on clocks with tourbillons: an area in which BUBEN&ZORWEG is constantly breaking new ground.

    We surprised the experts with the double tourbillon in 2007 and again with the Orbit tourbillon in 2009. Our Atelier d'Horlogerie offers the best conditions for creating these FINE TIMEPIECES -from the design to the elaborate manufacture.

    In 2008 BUBEN&ZORWEG focused intensely on security, and presented the first safes which not only fulfill every safety related wish, but, with their unique design, also represent anattractive addition to every elegant interior.

    Since 2006 BUBEN&ZORWEG has offered a combination ofthe previous areas of operation in the form of the OBJECTS OF TIME®, opening up a new dimension for lovers of valuable watches and/or unique pieces created to complement sophisticated interiors. From precious single pieces to modular, individually equipped walls or rooms, BUBEN&ZORWEG is a competent, innovative partner for the creation of exclusive ambience.
