Full Dis­play A mix of me­chan­ics, art and eroti­cism

Bespoke - - OMG! -

This Clas­sic Voyeur watch by Ulysse Nardin comes in three ver­sions: rose gold, as shown here, for 314,500 USD; platinum, for 346,500 USD; and platinum with 60 baguette di­a­monds around the bezel, for 398,000 USD. Just 18 pieces will be made of each, and though it fea­tures a minute re­peater, which is one of the tech­no­log­i­cal pin­na­cles of me­chan­i­cal time­keep­ing, what makes it very spe­cial, even among X-rated time­pieces, is that its au­toma­tons are po­si­tioned front and cen­tre on the dial and not hid­den be­hind a cover, or on the case­back. The scene de­picts two cou­ples (in­di­vid­u­ally hand sculpted in gold, with ap­pro­pri­ately hinged and mov­ing parts) that en­gage in dif­fer­ent sex­ual acts that play out in time with the re­peater’s chimes. “I know it can sound funny when you look at the watch, but it’s ac­tu­ally a good il­lus­tra­tion of how we mas­ter crafts­man­ship,” says the com­pany’s CEO, Pa­trick Pru­ni­aux.
