Watches are a man’s jewellery, women have necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and what not but a man has only his watch.
When going for a watch, the Swiss are known for the best watch movements known to man and Swiss don’t come cheap.
Here is an example of a finely crafted watch. The Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon. This watch is unbelievable, and for someone who doesn’t really know much about Patek Philippe I will give you an example of how good these watches are.
Their advertising slogan is, ‘You do not own a Patek Philippe, you merely hold it for future generations.’

This particular watch is special, it has 686 parts making part of the movement some so small they need to be seen under a microscope. Most automatic watches average at 200 parts in the mechanism, not only does this have 686 parts but it also has two faces. One for the time and the other shows a sky chart, with the phase and orbit of the moon.
It is the company’s first ever two-faced watch and it is the most complicated watch they have ever produced.
