Cabestan Watch – cranky indulgence


The Cabestan Watch provides yet more proof of the current decline of Western civilisation. Why else would you pay money to someone to create a timepiece that looks so ridiculously fragile? Anyway, it’s available in a small run of 135 units until 2008, so if you hurry and have an enormous pile of cash available, you may just grab one in time.

 Winding the watch and setting the hour and minutes are effected using a winding stem in the form of a movable “winch” that links directly to one of the small “capstans” that are found at the four exterior angles of the case…The Cabestan production limited to 135 pieces (15 are in yellow gold, 55 in rose gold, 50 in white gold and 15 in platinum); watches to be delivered from end of 2006 up to the beginning of 2008.
