Roger Dubuis doesn't always seem to know how to market their tourbillon watches in regard to the language they use to describe them. According to Roger Dubuis, 2015 is the year of the "Astral Tourbillon," even though they never really elaborate on what that is. I believe it refers to the five-pointed star that the bridge over the mainspring barrel forms. Roger Dubuis also added "Spider" the name of their watches because they feel that the design of their skeletonized movements looks sort of like a spider web... and a star. It's all just words which are used in an attempt to best explain what are, in my opinion, difficult to explain products.
Jean-Claude Biver: Yes, as already said here above, we have developed quite an interesting and important collection in our core price segment as well as in the entry price of it. Entry prices are always quite essential and important as they enable customers to enter into the brand. That’s why special efforts have been made in this entry price segment.
The movement is manually wound and has a power reserve of 65 hours operating at a modest 2.5Hz (18,000 bph). This slower frequency is sometimes desired for tourbillons, as it allows for a greater visual appreciation of the oscillating balance wheel. The free-spring balance wheel is further fitted with a Spiral Straumann balance spring that has a Philips curve. In addition to the time, the movement also offers a date indicator disc whose window is at 3 o'clock on the dial.
