World's Most Complicated Watch!

Post by passion on Thu Jul 09, 2009 10:54 am



World's Most Complicated Watch

Company: Jaeger-LeCoultre

Price: $2,500,000

You are looking at the world’s most complicated wrist watch as of 2009. The Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie from Jaeger-LeCoultre holds an impressive 26 complications in a single mechanical timepiece -- trumping the last complex watch weighing in at 25. The price of $2.5 million is somewhat misleading as the Grande Sonnerie model is not sold alone. Instead, the watch arrives as part of a set (limited to 30 sets total) of three timepieces that together represent a total of 55 complications. In addition to the Grande Sonnerie model, the Hybris Mechanica set includes the Gyrotourbillon model and the Reverso a Tryptique timepieces -- all arriving in a safe as the presentation box

Aside from telling the time, the beautiful Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie watch focuses on two major functions including the perpetual calendar and the ornate chiming functions. The Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 182 flying tourbillon movement is massively complex with over 1,300 parts. The gongs and hammers of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie include the ability to play the full "Carillon de Westminster" melody, a grande sonnerie, petit sonnerie, and has a minute repeater

If you are one of the 30 people who will own this timepiece, you will probably want to be careful with it. Aside from the obvious fragility of the ultra detailed movement, this is a seriously collectible timepiece. Thought $2.5 million was a lot? Wait 10 or 20 years and see what the watch is worth then. The watch itself comes in an 18k white-gold case and is 44mm wide by 15mm thick. Part of the mystique is how Jaeger-LeCoultre is able to fit everything into the case: Sapphire crystals on the front and rear of the watch provide a clear view into the surprisingly easy-to-read dial -- given everything that it does -- as well as the ornately decorated movement on the front and rear of the watch.
