Chopard has just released their new tourbillon watch – to be presented at Basel World later this month – the Chopard L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon Watch.

This alligator, titanium and sapphire watch sports a gravity-defying tourbillon, front-and-center, with stunning aircraft-grade handiwork throughout its face.

Its tourbillon carries a 60 hour power reserve, its capacity displayed in a charge indicator atop the watch’s face.

The timepiece is to be made in an extremely limited series of just 150 pieces, that number being a commemorative nod to the 150th birthday of Chopard.

The price tag is something like $50,000.
