Moving further into the movement, we end up at the one-minute flying tourbillon, literally the centerpiece of the movement. It may seem like a fastidious addition for the sake of having a tourbillon, but actually, the flying tourbillon is the only thing that would work in this case - and here's why... On a standard, non-tourbillon movement a bridge (well, actually a cock, as it does not have two fixed ends) is securing the balance wheel from the top, while a traditional tourbillon is usually held by a bridge.

There has been an obvious attempt to align the Zenith Academy Georges Favre-Jacot watch with the current range with the case shape. The Academy watches have a pretty unadventurous silhouette, but it is modern enough without being crass in any way at all – although at 45 millimeters wide, it certainly is relatively large. The problem with the styling of this watch for me, lies in the half-hearted dial design and the seemingly non-existent relationship of the hands. The majority of fusée-driven wristwatches I have seen all fall neatly into the second critical category – their design is eminently consistent with itself.

Preowned watches are timepieces that have passed beyond the doors of the original authorized dealers; by definition, these watches have had more than one owner. Once a watch is held by an owner not qualified to sign and endorse the factory warranty card, the watch is preowned. For the purposes of this discussion, late model preowned watches are best compared to cars that have completely depreciated but are yet to be acknowledged as collectibles. In the case of watches and cars, that moment – collector recognition – tends to be the turning point at which values harden, and the upward march of pricing commences.
