The Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical watch draws inspiration from the capstan—a lever-operated drum on a rotating axis used to wind ropes, chains, and cables. This inimitable, spectacular timepiece operates on the same principle, with a miniature chain capstan and drums that display hours, minutes, seconds, and power reserve. The lever, or “winch”, mechanism is hidden in the deployment clasp, and sapphire crystal allows complete visibility of the mechanical Swiss movements, comprised of 1,352 separate parts. Each watch includes precious materials, such as diamonds, gold, platinum, and brushed titanium, painstakingly assembled by hand down to each of the 450 individual chain links. They retail for around $275,000 - $400,000—that is, if you are able to locate one of the 135 models produced.
