    The tourbillon calibre CFB T3000 is a world premiere, and represents a continuation of Carl F. Bucherer’s pioneering role in the development of peripheral technology. The new movement, created entirely in-house, with a patent for the peripheral winding mechanism and a pending patent for the tourbillon, combines a peripheral rotor with a peripherally mounted tourbillon mechanism that seems to float freely. The carriage, rather than rotating on a centre ruby bearing, is supported peripherally by three ceramic ball bearings, allowing the tourbillon to be admired without obstruction from both front and back. Carl F. Bucherer’s patented peripheral unidirectional rotor allows for a completely open view of the movement through the sapphire caseback. Calibre T3000, with silicon components and a stop-seconds function, is one of the few tourbillon movements on the market to be officially COSC chronometer-rated.

    WOW! Out of my league at ($72,300 USD as specified on the CFB site) and beyond beautiful, but WOW! I saw a 36.5mm model previously shown, but would never wear something that small. This, however, I would definitely put on my wrist.

    Looks nice - can someone explain to me how this peripherally mounted carriage is different from a regular tourbillon cage?

    The carriage, rather than rotating on a centre ruby bearing (regular), is supported peripherally by three ceramic ball bearings (Manero). Your question makes me think you don’t read what you are posting and you need 100 posts to sell something on WUS ? Hope I am not right.
    Kind regards

    Yes I read the words, and yes, your explanation, is mostly a tautology, and unhelpful. The photo seems to still show a regular center ruby bearing, and outwardly does not look all that different from a regular carriage. So yes, still don't get it. Does it mean there's some sort of railroad track supporting said three bearings that allow the carriage to turn? Is this an improvement over the regular way of doing things or just another way of making this particular movement special? Or maybe I shouldn't be allowed to ask these questions just because I have a low post count?

    You must deal with a lot of crap as a mod but don't automatically assume the worst of people.
