For the watch aficionado who can afford to spend a cool million dollars on a timepiece, Manufacture Royale’s Opera $1.2 million tourbillon watch, is a very meticulous piece of horological art. The musical watch features a unique shape. The watch case is 50mm wide and is crafted in 18k rose or gray gold on a Mississippi alligator skin strap. It has three sapphire crystals and 60 pieces in its construction. The Opera Time-Piece contains a brand new movement that is manually wound, has a tourbillon and a minute repeater, the minute repeater plays the hours in A, and the minute in C sharp. The watch is built of 319 parts, and has a power reserve in excess of 100 hours. Only 12 of these watches will be made, and each will be individually numbered and will come encased in a veneered wooden box that is said to be a reproduction of the Bastille Opera House in Paris

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This watch is incredible in both style and mechanical design. Those wealthy enough to afford its hefty price tag should wear it with pride.
