cabestan_winch_tourbillon_vertical

A concept watch that we never though would make it to production, the Cabestan Winch Tourbillon is now offered in a variety of styles by Jean-François Ruchonnet of the DMC Group. Though it may not match that expensive suit of yours, it’s an engineering masterpiece that uses nothing less than 1,352 separate components driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums. Only four units will be built every month, with prices starting from $275,000 and reaching $400,000 depending on style. With these figures, I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t have to worry about that weird design, isn’t it? [via SlashGear]
