Although this surely is not the most expensive piece of Blancpain tourbillon watches, not many people can afford it easily. The price tag definitely makes most people think that they rather spend this money on something more ‘sensible’. With retail price at more than USD $110,000 – you can buy 2 new 2011 BMW Z4 with this amount of cash. Flashy car is not your choice? How about using the money to send your kid to medical school or pay for the down payment of your house? However, as a mater of fact we simply can’t help but dream about something as grand as this timepiece and have to resist the temptation of owning one.
This Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Mens Tourbillon Watch comes in a polished 18K rose gold anti-magnetic case. The unidirectional black and rose gold bezel adds to the elegance exuded by the watch. A black canvas wristband secured with an adjustable buckle clasp completes the look of sophistication. The black dial is shielded by the scratch resistant sapphire window. Beneath the 12 o’clock dial there is a window features the skeleton tourbillon movement of this watch.
