Tourbillon Souverain Vertical is a luxury wristwatch by F. P. Journe

For the 20th anniversary of the Tourbillon Souverain in 2019 this variant with transverse tourbillon is presented.

I designed this vertical tourbillon so that the tourbillon’s functions remain constant whether the watch lies flat or is placed on its side, and the amplitude is consequently the same, whether the watch has a deployant clasp and lies on its side or an ardillon buckle and lies flat. — J.P. Journe
