Thread: Which one out of twelve ?

  1. #1

    Which one out of twelve ?




    As a bit of fun, if you can manage the 11 minutes of the video and excuse his pronounciation of Tour-be-on and cla-ray etc

    then which single one would you choose ?

    Iíd go for the Jaquet Droz (aka Jacky Dro )

    (I didnít go looking for it, it was suggested )

    I would get the $395k Space Pirate, because then I could sell it and buy some really nice watches.

    Some of those are truly amazing works of art and craftsmanship, but I donít consider any of them something I would wear.

    Very true, some are as out there as out there gets

    There must be customers for these manufacturers to make them , I wonder who they are.

    The totally bonkers one for me was:

    That's good fun, despite the annoying voice-over. We all know these are not watches for wearing; despite that, I could actually imagine being able to wear the UN music box. It's surprisingly understated. The planisphere tourby is really quite beautiful. Such things exist for marketing purposes, and for the .01% to show off to the other .01% that they own something the others don't own.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    If it was given to me the Hublot or second place the HYT are the most interesting to me. They never really show how the numbers are displayed on the Harry Winston Opus?

    If you blink during the speeded up video demo, you'll miss it (look in the centre)

    Watch from 3:10 ... there are 'tiles' that are flipped into place (in groups of four) to show the hour of the day (the minutes are elsewhere on the dial)
