Thanks to CoolHunting for first bringing my attention to this Sexy Beast!
Inspired by old Curta calculators, this watchmaking marvel has a vertical tourbillon and an unusual fusée-and-chain movement. Time is shown on the barrels; no dial and no hands. You wind the watch by attaching a "wrench" to the two top cabestans (the knobs on the side).
135 of these beauties will be made in gold or platinum. Oh, and start saving now. They cost around $220,000 and are available from Vianney Halter.Yeah, but a Richter scale-polygraph detector watch will come out for Basel 2007, you mark my word.
