    57, Count 'Em, 57 Complications

    I'm not much into pocket watches, but I can certainly appreciate them. And this one from Vacheron Constantin takes the cake in terms of complications in a single watch. Pretty amazing to be sure.

    No worries - it's a whole lot of awesome regardless of how many threads. I was actually toying with writing a book review of "A Grand Complication" by Stacy Perman for my next blog entry, but I figure it might get about as many hits as my last verbacious philosophical noodle so I figure, no rush.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    I thought it might have an interesting side profile.
    It does :-)
