I haven't seen a MSRP on this piece. Agreed gold vs. platinum shouldn't be a lot, but given that each platinum watch is unique, that factor alone will probably raise the price between the metals substantially. New tourbillons vary drastically in price, but are usually in the ~$100K price range. They can vary though from $40K-50K to over $1,000,000 given the manufacturer, the limited number produced and what other complications are integrated into the movement.
