Historic OMEGA 1947 “Tourbillon 30 I” again makes history

Phillips Watches recently sold the historically important OMEGA 1947 “Tourbillon 30 I” at an auction for CHF 1,428,500 at the Geneva Watch Auction. The unique stainless steel prototype tourbillon wristwatch, in superb condition, is not only magnificently attractive but has immense horological significance. Featuring a tourbillon escapement with Guillaume balance, it sheds new light on the history of this complication in wristwatch form, as it is most certainly the first prototype of a series of OMEGA wristwatch tourbillons from the late 1940s that unfortunately never saw the light of day.
