Purnell’s avant-garde timepieces are made in Switzerland to the highest standards of workmanship and engineering. Purnell timepieces are 100% Swiss Made, from the highly polished cone to the folding clasp. An exclusivity that matches the extreme complexity of the masterpieces. This exclusivity is partly due to the intricate mechanism of the Purnell star: the Spherion. In the more than 220 years since the invention of the tourbillon, nothing has changed the mechanism as much as Eric Coudray (winner of the Prix Gaïa 2012) and the Spherion he invented, the fastest triple-axis tourbillon in the world.
