Grandmaster Time

While the end product is not exactly my ‘cup of tea’, the design, process, and manufacture of this timepiece is a marvel to behold. My chum Cookie (yes, him with the motorbike and catholic skill set*) sent me this link knowing that I would appreciate the skill and elegance of this watch, and I, in turn, want to share it with you. The Grandmaster Chime was created for Patek Philippe’s 175th anniversary in 2014, and combines a staggering 1366 different parts.

*By which I mean he can weld, paint, cook, draw, design, and mix a mean G&T, not that he is a dab hand with a thurible or zucchetto.
