La Tradition with tourbillon?

In the recent issue (20) of QP Magazine there is an article on master watchmakers. At one of the pages there is a small picture of a pocket watch made by Francois-Paul Journe in his spare time (!) when he was studding to become a watchmaker. The movement is a Breguet copy, all handmade by FP Journe and the back of the watch looks just like the La Tradition but with a tourbillon at 6, like this from the ref. pages: http://www.network54.com/Forum/250817/message/1124524149/Tourbillon+3357+Yellow+Gold

I don’t know much about Breguet movements but could they make a “La Tradition" with a tourbillon at 6 from the movements they already have in the production or would they have to design a new movement? And will Breguet do it?

I think it would be a killer…

I agree, it would be a killer...

and I can assure you it...

well, I actually can't assure you - but isn't it obvious?!
They do not have a finished movement yet, but I believe, when they designed the movement for the "la tradition", they had it in mind already. So it is a question of time until it will be released. A good guess will be April 07 . And I believe as well it WILL be at 6 o'clock...

That would be a dream come true. Imagine, even more exciting, a central tourbillon in the tradition style. Breguet would of course have to re-design their current tourbillon, as it would not exactly mesh stylistically. But how mouth watering!
