The Pennsylvania (MM2) Tourbillon watch (pictured at left), created by Benoît Barbé, Roland Murphy and Rich Baugh of RGM Watches of Pennsylvania, USA, has won the 2011/2010 Alibre Design Contest, a peer-reviewed competition that recognizes significant achievement in three-dimensional computer aided-design (3D CAD). The Alibre-designed timepiece has captured the attention of the world’s watch making industry and the luxury timepiece market, as it is the first American-made tourbillon to be introduced and manufactured in the U.S.A. RGM’s Pennsylvania Tourbillion has a list price of $75,000, and is an extraordinary achievement in watchmaking craftsmanship at an extremely competitive price point for a timepiece designed with a tourbillion complication.

RGM’s Pennsylvania Tourbillon was selected by a majority of 3D CAD designers and other users in an open design competition sponsored by Alibre (www.alibre.com), the leading global provider of cost effective professional grade mechanical CAD, CAM, and PDM software solutions. Founded in 1997, Richardson, Texas-based Alibre is led by Chairman and CEO J. Paul Grayson (previously CEO of Micrografx) and other graphics visionaries who are changing the landscape of 3D mechanical CAD/CAM software.
