Wow - It's the first word, I thought of when I saw it's picture. If you think only bikes look good, when they show their parts, then see this watch...

Brainchild of Vianney Halter and the engineering masterpiece of the DMC Group's Jean-Fran├žois Ruchonnet.
With 1,352 components working together in masterful horological precision [you can see how the parts are working within the watch], driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums. At a price tag of $275,000 to afford the base model, you can add some more to get it slathered in platinum and diamonds at $400,000. Or may be you would like to go for a Merc Benz or a Ferrari.

There are a number of skins available (made of gold and other precious metals) other than the one displayed in the images.

So finally, if are hesitating to buy it like me, then just visit their homepage [Cabestan] to see a lot of information regarding the watch and the parts individually.
