DeWhat? DeWitt Incognito Steampunk Concept No.1

Selling for 400,000 Euros at the OnlyWatch auction before it had been shown to anyone, the DeWitt Concept No.1 was a beast to behold last week at Baselworld. Devoloped with French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, this gothic pirate spaceship of a watch is taking the steampunk oeuvre to new heights with its expanding riveted case, flying tourbillon, five barrels and a 21 day power reserve.

I had a private viewing of the watch and took these shots...

Some perspective on the size from the DeWitt watchmaker

The entire time I wondered why this watch looked familiar
...then I figured it out!
