Boutique watch brand Cecil Purnell, founded in 2006 and named for founder Jonathan Purnell’s watchmaker grandfather, bills itself as “the only haute horlogerie brand crafting exclusively tourbillons.” Its product line uses all in-house-developed tourbillon movements, many of which add additional complications such as big date indications and hour strikers. In 2014, Cecil Purnell launched several new movements, notably the one used in its new Twin Tourbillon CP-V15 watch. The two tourbillons in this timepiece, visible in the lower half of the sapphire-chromium dial with applied Roman numerals, are linked together by a differential in a system that is intended to ensure greater timekeeping precision. Both tourbillons in the double-barrel movement rotate clockwise at 3 Hz. The contemporary regulating system, with two gears and a spiral, ensures that the tourbillons cages regulate one another’s speed and work to increase the precision of the mechanism. The modern-yet-classical case, designed by renowned watch designer Stephane Lacroix, is available in white gold or rose gold.
