Call me old fashioned by I like my rugged durable watches - rugged and durable. When I think of a tank manufacturer, I don't ever want them to consider making a tank out of gold. That seems to be metaphorically what German UTS
did by making this tourbillon watch. The expensive complication is delicate and more of an horological cause for bragging. It's barely something that assists in function or durability. So why put one in there? Pretty much just to say that you did, and to satisfy a certain realm of collectors. The manually wound tourbillon movement has a power reserve of three days and is made by SST, a movement company now owned by Bovet Dimier. The watch is water resistant to 1000 meters and the open tourbillon escapement carriage looks misplaced on UTS's typically minimalist, functional dials. I just sort of roll my eyes at this and think of the brand as a little less pure. Price for this rare piece is about 30,000 euros. No deal for me.
