As we all know, Rolex itself does not produce tourbillon watches. But in September 2018, Swiss modification studio Label Noir launched the first Rolex tourbillon watch in history (custom-modified by Label Noir) based on Milgauss Ref. 116400 at the request of a Qatari customer. Recently, Label Noir has modified the Ref. 116520 and released the first customized Rolex Daytona tourbillon watch.
This unique timepiece is specially made to order and will be delivered to the customer after participating in four exhibitions in Geneva, Paris, Saint-Tropez, and Monaco. Until then, the watch is in the safe custody of watchmaker Emmanuel Curti. Emmanuel Curti is a member of the prestigious Société Suisse de Chronométrie (SSC) and CEO of Label Noir. Top replica watch.
The modified prototype is a discontinued Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref. 116520 watch, wholly owned by the custom customer. By the customer’s wishes, Label Noir added a tourbillon function at the 6 o’clock position of the Caliber 4130 movement. After the successful transplant, the small seconds dial located at 6 o’clock on the dial disappeared to make room for the tourbillon frame, which rotates once per minute and is decorated with the words “LN” (the abbreviation of Label Noir).

The Label Noir’s challenge was preserving as many of the watch’s original parts as possible. Label Noir completely disassembled the Caliber 4130 movement, removing 61 features that were no longer useful, especially those related to the small seconds dial at 6 o’clock. At the same time, an additional 93 parts involving the tourbillon and its frame were added. In addition, the power of the barrel has been increased to drive the tourbillon, and the vibration frequency of the movement has been lowered from 28,800 times per hour (4 Hz) to 21,600 times per hour (3 Hz).
