It is a stunner for sure..

Here is some info below, I took from Wiki.


Vacheron Constantin is considered to be the first company that was able to create one of the most complicated wristwatches in the world entitled Tour de I'lle. It was created in 2005 to mark the anniversary of 250 years of Vacheron Constantin. The watch includes 834 parts and 16 horological complications. It was only available through the Vacheron Constantin shop in Geneva, Switzerland and sold for more than $1 million.

Absolutely breath-taking. I wonder if one can turn it over and wear it as sort of a reversible watch (a la JLC :-d).

$1 million for a watch which can only show the days, dates... when you take it off from your wrist ?

I hear the 2010 model will include radio controlled atomic syncing.

Its quite expensive and elaborate, but not the "best" since everyone's preference is different.

A bit off topic - Jason, since you're interested in all things Seiko, what do you think of the 6R20 movement in the Premier autos?

Looks great, thanks for the wrist shot! Just wish Seiko would introduce more of their high end auto/auto chrono movements for the non-Japan market ... the Premier seems to be the nicest of the bunch available outside Japan.
