Isn't this a beauty? - Page 2

post #16 of 33
It sort of reminds me of the new Lange Zeitwerk, although that is not a tourbillion of course. Not sure if I like that or not. On the one hand the level of craftsmanship is beyond question, but it is a fairly dramatic departure for Lange.

Sorry, not at all. Just another gross unbalanced 'Look, I'm a Tourbillon and expensive' design. Just my 2 cents though...

As that type of watch goes it's far from the nicest I've ever seen...

To me it looks very sinister.
I got chills.

That's not necessarily a bad thing. It's certainly interesting, and I doubt you'll ever run into someone else with a similar watch. I feel like you'd have trouble reading the time.

For those of you who said its too showy... do you like tourbillons at all?

Definitely not. Only 8 are being produced in white gold, 8 in yellow gold and even less in platinum (each platinum version will be of a slight variation so no platinum version will be identical).

Showy or not, its cool.

It seems to me that at this expensive of a watch you are paying for the craftsmanship, the name, the tourbillon, etc. I would think that the difference between gold and platinum would be a drop in the bucket to the other things. Is the price difference large?

The textured face is a carving process call guilloché.

One of my favorite guilloché dials is on the Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Réveil Limited Edition.

I'm not one for ostentatiousness, but this watch is pretty cool looking. Now only if that purple thing in the middle of the tourbillon lit up like HAL...

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.
