Sekonda Skeleton Tourbillon.



Lovely little watch I found today from a company called Sekonda England. This  fashionable item,  sports a sapphire Crystal face glass, also clear glass on the back. So you can see all that hardware moving around. I mean what is the use of having tourbillon mechanism if you can’t see it.

Price: 1604.63 Euro’s Of course limited edition.

Cartier.


CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Whilst I could easily, and with obvious good reason, burst into a full-on hyperbolic harangue expounding upon the virtues of the storied Cartier firm, their luxury goods and, with all due deference to this particular post, the Santos-Dumont model, I will refrain from going ape shit and simply say for the record that this watch is a perfect example of „Heroin Chic“.


I could not have quoted this better myself. Additionally the strap is Alligator black.

The Emperador Coussin Tourbillon


Piaget will be debuting, this delightful Tourbillon watch at The Salon Internationale de la Haute Horlogerie. which will take place on the 17th- 21st of January in Geneva, Switzerland.


Now if I were to wear this watch I would not have a clue as to what time it is, that would seem besides the point.  Would like to point out that this watch can be worn up to 30 meters below water. Still trying to think why this would matter, unless of course you fell off a yacht.


Expected price: 250.000 Euros.

Manufacture Royale


I came across this watch today which just stopped me in my tracks, however I thought I would do something novel I will just link you to the site of a  Mr. Ariel Adams. There his description is way better than I could have written, to describe this beast  made by Manufacture Royale . Enjoy.

Bugatti Galibier 16C Car& Tourbillon Watch


Those that know me know that I do not have a clue about car’s. As I do not have a driver’s license. Any way this lovely little morsel caught my eye, I have no idea what the technical details mean. so I thought the story should be good enough. A link is provided for those that need to know more.


Estimates for the car one million Euro’s. Well you do get a matching watch! more after the jump.

A Watch …



I dont really know that much about watches, however my eyes graviated towards this company, I think because of the name. Patek Philippe, Just say it a few times, go on. Well anyway from what I have read this watch in based on a technique called tourbillon invented by yes a Swiss, Abraham-Louis Breguet 1795. This was made in order to defy gravity and to be more accurate. However there is still a debate as to the accuracy of these watches. None the less they are a staple of,  VERY expensive watches.


Asking price is a mere 110,000-250,000Euros.
