Maybe one or the other of you has wondered about the picture of the tourbillon model depicted upon entering our forum. This is a hand-made working model of a Glashuette-fashion tourbillon, produced by GO. What might be new for most of you is that GO offered not only that but some other specialities as 'tradition products' in their early catalogues. I will show them here, in separate posts, due to the size of the scans.
If someone of you is interested in obtaining such a product, please don't hesitate to query at GO. During my visit last November I saw some people acutally working on these, so they might still be available.
So here is the first of the 'tradition products':
