One of the most expensive men’s watches in the world is extraordinary Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie. Magnificent timepiece made by Jaeger-LeCoultre costs almost 1.5 million dollars. Indicating the time thanks to the crystal clear tones of a Westminster chime, this exceptional model comprising over 1472 parts is one of the most complex watches ever made.
Adding more glitter to the pedigree, this one is mainly recognized for the unique chiming mechanism that enables the watch to play the entire Carillon de Westminster melody. For sure, this is the longest melody ever played by any watch, powered by a maximum of 12-hour power reserve in Grande Sonnerie mode.
Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie contains a striking-mechanism combined with a perpetual calendar and a flying tourbillon. The perpetual calendar mechanism features retrograde hands for all functions from date, month and weekday. The instant mechanism is programmed until the year 2100.
In case you do not wear your expensive watch, you can keep it in the incredible Hybris Mechanica 55 Safe. Fitted with an electronic locking system, the safe is code-secured so there is no place for worry. The manufacture installed a special, piezo-driven sound system in the safe, so that the actual chiming of the Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie can be heard from the outside even with the safe securely locked.
