This Ridiculously Expensive Watch is Crafted from Transparent Sapphire

Most expensive timepieces include complex mechanisms or movements that were put together using many individual parts and gems. And while some watches have transparent case backs that reveal these mechanisms partially, some of them actually have entirely transparent cases made out of sturdy materials such as sapphire. A great example is the Double Tourbillon 30° Technique by Greubel Forsey – a product that has been described as a “pinnacle of transparency” by its creators. The dial and the case include no metal parts whatsoever except for the winding pin, which means that the wearer can admire pretty much the entire movement architecture.

The case measures 38.4mm, and it was created using a single block of sapphire crystal. Moreover, it looks like the watch includes sapphire in other places as well, such as the crown. As for the movement, it incorporates 396 parts in total, and it comes with two tourbillon escapements, one of which rotates every four minutes, while the second does this every 60 seconds. Other highlights include a power reserve of 120 hours, an elegant black strap and a price tag of $1.275 million. If you were thinking about getting your hands on one of these watches, you’re out of luck, as the Double Tourbillon 30° Technique is limited to just eight units. Still, it’s definitely quite amazing to look at, wouldn’t you agree?
