Do You Piss Liquid Gold?: A $400,000 Watch

The Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Vertical Watch is utterly ridiculous and has 1,352 parts (in comparison, my sundial has two). It's "driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums" and looks like it'll break just putting it on. The base model will set you back $275,000, but if you want that shit to have platinum and diamonds and a set of grillz it'll be $400,000. I have no idea what makes the thing tell time, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's something to do with a winch. And speaking of which -- more beer you wretched beast!

Mad props in advance to everyone that's going to use their comment to tell me beer wench is spelled with an e.

Hit the jump for several more pictures of the awesomely constructed movement.

A watch so complicated it's a shame it only tells the time [dvice]
