Invented in 1801 by Abraham-Louis Breguet, the Tourbillon is celebrating its 220th anniversary this year with a showstopping model called the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Anniversaire 5365. Elegantly designed yet complicated in its construction and level of detail, the watch is housed in a rose gold case with a fluted baseband, framing an 18-karat engine-turned, silvered gold 41mm case that is painstakingly finished and produced in four parts. At the bottom right of the dial is a window into the extra-flat Caliber 581. 16 automatic movement, which features a blued steel tourbillon bridge and a power reserve of 80 hours. 

The watch is limited to 35 pieces, a number that refers to the number of tourbillon watches made during Abraham-Louis Breguet's lifetime.
