The Winch Tourbillion Vertical Watch is as insane as the name would imply. Made by Cabestan and priced at $275,000–$400,000, these exquisite timepieces are made from a mere 1,352 components driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums. Shown above is the $400,000 diamond and platinum model (you might recognize it from my holiday wishlist- not crossed off yet- hint hint).
