On the one hand..... I am one of those who has a semi-firm moral objection to paying even Rolex prices for a wristwatch, much less what I'm sure this retails for....

On the other.... good grief, that is both an engineering feat and a work of art, and I found myself watching this bit at least 3 times. Clockporn.

I hate feeling so conflicted  Tongue

Anyway, enjoy: a promotional video about the assembly of the Audemar Piguet "Grade Complication", including chime/minute repeater, moonphase, perpetual calendar accurate for the next century, split-second chronograph, and some bloody lovely metalwork

Quite something, isnt it?  Price on that one was listed at $643,000 USD last time I looked. Amazing bit of mechanical craftsmanship. 

For those who think Rolex are expensive, with most of their base models being in the $4,000-$10,000 range here's a few more shockers..

Bell and Ross BR-S  with an ETA 7001 manual wind - $11,000
Patek Phillippe Perpetual Calendar Retrograde - $83,900
Montblanc Grande Toubillon Heures  Mysterieuses - $266,000

Great googa mooga.

It'll never be in my price range, but.... I'm glad someone's doing it.  Grin
