One of the most impressive watches in the industry, the Bird Repeater by Jaquet Droz, has just been released in a new version (limited to just 8 pieces).
The beautiful new watch, the Bird Repeater Geneve, is a limited edition of eight, and is a massive 47mm in diameter. At this diameter, it is more form over function. While I am sure that it still tells the time accurately, the main feature on this watch is, and always will be, the animated birds. These watches pay tribute to Pierre Jaquet-Droz (I recommend you research him if you are so inclined) who had a spectacular career creating elaborate automatons and automatas. Some of his creations are even around today. The RMA88 movement is protected by a 47mm 18-carat red gold case. Jaquet Droz's website has a post about the watch here. My estimate for the price of the watch is ~$500,000.
