A Slightly Expensive Watch

A Tourbillon is a mechanical watch with a mechanism that accounts for the effects of gravity, in order to provide amazing accuracy.

As one would imagine, because of the clever technology and the level of craftsmanship required to build them, these watches can be quite expensive.

However, I was still flabbergasted when I heard the price of the one pictured here.

It's from a range called Defy Xtreme, made by a company called Zenith . If this post from Cool Hunting is accurate, it costs over half a million dollars!
