Shopping at a David Yurman
store and want a really expensive watch
? They have high-end watches, but if that isn't enough for you, then check out the David Yurman
Tourbillon, more specifically the David Yurman Ancestrale collection Tourbillon. The Ancestrale collection is named after a variety of Cognac
and contains a few pieces. The tourbillon is the top of the line model being 43.5mm wide in 18k rose gold case with that "rope" design on the side of the case that is common to the brand. Not sure who makes the movement, but the manually wound tourbillon based movement has a power reserve of 120 hours and displays only the time. The tourbillon escapement is skeletonized and doubles as the seconds hand. The slate dial has a few textures and applied gold hour markers. Attached to the Ancestrale Tourbillon watch is a Cognac brown alligator strap. Is the watch nice? Yes, but not likely nice enough to lure educated watch lovers who are already familiar with tourbillons movements from other brands.
