The Anniversary Tourbillon
For the anniversary of 250 years of watches and jewelry from the Goldstadt Pforzheim, Wilhelm Rieber produced an extraordinary pocket watch with flying tourbillon. The ideas and guidelines of the county district, Sparkasse Pforzheim Calw and the City of Pforzheim were taken into account.
Wilhelm Rieber completed this masterpiece in a total working time of one year, solely by hand and pure craftsmanship, according to the traditional methods of the art of watch making. On 20 May, this watch was handed over to the jewelry museum in a ceremonial act by district councilor Mr Karl Röckinger and the CEO of the Sparkasse Pforzheim Calw Mr Stephan Scholl. The watch gets a fixed place in the exhibition and is thus preserved forever, the posterity and will always remember this particular anniversary.
