Spotlight on Krems and Stein, Austria

A short day trip from Vienna, two historic towns that, in time and place, take visitors far, far away

Just an hour train ride from Vienna, 64km west along the Danube River in the Wachau Valley, are the neighboring historic towns of Krems and Stein (in German: Krems und Stein an der Donau). These charming towns, famous for their impeccably maintained baroque architecture, though a short and easy trip from Vienna, whisk visitors away into an Austrian countryside setting that is, in short, fairytale-like.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Spherotourbillon

The highly complicated Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Spherotourbillon is a double-axis tourbillon with several technical innovations. Notable among them is its power source: it is driven by two mainspring barrels and two separate going trains. One powers the tourbillon and the other the time indications and calendar. Another distinction is the stop-seconds flyback function, which, in addition to returning the seconds hand to zero according to the flyback principle, makes the watch adjustable to the nearest second, a rare function that allows the wearer to synchronize the watch with an external time signal. The flyback aspect of the stop-seconds is a world first. The Spherotourbillon is the fourth watch in the brand’s Duometre series, all of which have two independent barrels that power different functions in the timepiece.
