…The Cabestan Winch Vertical Tourbillon is a chain driven watch?

Cabestan Winch Vertical Tourbillon

The Cabestan Winch Vertical Tourbillon is like no other watch in the world.

Time is told on two rotating drums (one for hours and one for minutes) that are made of engraved aluminum and set on ball bearings, and each drum is equipped with a resistance spring the enables you to disconnect it for time setting, as well as a small winch that is stored in the folding buckle of the bracelet that allows you to wind the watch.

However, what’s truly amazing is that this watch holds power through a chain drive that consists of 450 small links made of inoxidizable steel and riveted by hand. The chain is good for 72 hours of power reserve, and is wound around the watch in a way that follows the natural energy of the spring within.

The titanium case is made of seven components that are vacuum welded together with hydrogen in a conveyor oven, and Pyrex crystals that are thermoformed by hand cover all the bits and pieces underneath.

All this tech doesn’t come cheap however, as you’ll be paying anywhere between $275,000 and $400,000 for the privilege depending on how much bling you want, but when tech and exclusivity get together with beauty like this, money can quickly become no object for those with the means.

…You blink needs a little more bling?

Diamond Eyelashes

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and apparently Madonna just couldn’t find enough places to put her best friend, so she had a custom set of mink false eyelashes done up with .75 carats of hand-faceted diamonds featuring a unique new cut called the “Star Shimmer Cut” to add a little bling to her gaze. Made by designer Gina Brooke, shu uemura’s artistic director, these custom eyelashes will now be available to non-celebrities as well for a hefty $10,000 per set. They will only be available through seven select Neiman Marcus stores though, so if you just have to have a set, it’s time to start making some phone calls. For those who can’t spend the price of a small car to add a little diamond shine to their look, shu uemura also offers replica diamond eyelashes for a much more affordable $25. Looks like the bling blink will definitely be in this season.
