Ariel Adams, the webmaster and the main contributor of the luxury watch review blog, reveals that he recently tried the the Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical watch on his wrist, and the result is impressively fantastic as shown above in the picture. As we know, it is famous watch designer who designed the Cabestan. And the related watch artisan spared no effort to make sure the watch has adorable appearance and reliable functions. It is no exaggeration to say the finishing on the Cabestan is second to none.
The latest version of Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical watch shows a few differences from the previouis model that was released several years ago. And the biggest change is that it has the winch removed. I guess it is to smoothen the line of the case and enhance its appearance. The original winch, as a independent part, was fitted at the right side of the watch. You can use it to wind the watch. And another big change is that this version is resized to a reasonable size to make it fit into normal wrist. The resized project must be very tough given the complexity of the watch.
Inside the watch, there has two sapphire crystal glasses that allows you have a clear view of the vertically-placed tourbillon that also displays seconds, hours and minutes. And the power reserve indicator is located on the on the mainspring barrel. The watch applies a complication of fusee and chain to transfer the power.
I have to say, the new Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical watch is so damn cool, though it takes some minutes to make clear its complex functions.
And the next watch offer from Cabestan is the Nostromo-name of a shion in the Alien movie. This new Cabestan comes with similar theme as the the Winch Tourbillon Vertical watch, but it is less expensive-just goes for 150,000 Swiss France. And you knw the original model sells at 325,000 Swiss Francs. The Nostromo is fitted with just one sapphire crystal over the front and it applies rive-shaft system to transfer power from the mainspring to the movement. It replaces the winch with a pop-out crown that stays inside the watch when it is not used. And movement is further revealed by two sapphire crystal sides. What is more interesting is that, the watch has new image at night as the movement and the strap have some special areas coated with SuperLumiNova.
