Double-Axis Tourbillion watch is mysterious, amazing

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2010

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a watch as amazing as this one. Amazing doesn’t even do it justice. In fact, the more you look at it, the more it mesmerizes you. Thomas Prescher’s Double Axis Tourbillon is completely empty of everything except the tourbillon, which is just hovering in the center, suspended by a thin wire.

Only the time, Tourbillon, calendar and oscillating weight are visible. The movement is completely hidden inside the bezel, and it’s powered by the oscillating weight at the top. You can’t help but stare at this thing for way too long.

Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Watch has a chain driveSpending a few grand on a watch is ridiculous. Spending $400K takes it to a whole other crazy level. $400K is what the Cabestan Winch Tourbillion watch will cost you. From afar it sort of resembles a weird fishing rod reel, but up close, you can see the amazing workmanship.

We’re talking 1352 components driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums in horizontal precision. How cool is that? Still, it’s like buying a house for your wrist. I bet this $400K watch is a real hit with bankers and auto executives. The rest of us can just admire it from afar.
