INSANE WATCHES You Won’t Believe Exist…

Far from simple timepieces that tell the
00:07
time these mechanical marvels go above
00:09
and beyond what we’d all expect from a
00:11
wristwatch for miniature moving bird
00:13
sculptures to solar systems on your
00:15
wrist
00:16
check out these twelve insane watches
00:18
you won’t believe exist first up are
00:24
some incredible creations from la-based
00:26
watchmakers Devon their tread 1 and
00:28
tread 2 watches are powered by
00:30
innovative movements based on a patented
00:32
system of interwoven time belts that
00:34
indicate the hours minutes and seconds
00:37
all controlled by an on-board
00:39
microprocessor just watching the dial in
00:41
motion is truly a mesmerizing experience
00:44
powered by a lithium polymer
00:45
rechargeable cell the tread one
00:47
continues to work for up to two weeks on
00:50
a single charge after which it can be
00:52
powered up wirelessly via a charging
00:54
tower the larger tread one timepiece
00:56
with a rectangular case starts at 17,500
00:59
dollars while the smaller two mouths
01:01
shaped tread 2 can be picked up for a
01:03
cool twelve thousand dollars these
01:05
unconventional pieces of machinery will
01:07
have you constantly staring at the watch
01:09
even when you already know the time a

01:16
relative newcomer to the world of
01:18
watches hyt launched in 2012 identifying
01:22
themselves as hydro-mechanical
01:23
horologist their groundbreaking
01:25
timepieces mix fluids with the
01:27
mechanical watch movement a colored
01:29
liquid makes its way around the outer
01:30
rim of the dial to indicate the hour
01:32
while the small sub dial is used to read
01:34
the minutes
01:35
hy T’s metropolis pushes the envelope
01:37
even further by lighting up the watch
01:39
without the use of a battery referred to
01:41
as the Dynamo light system the watch
01:43
essentially converts mechanical energy
01:45
into light winding the crown which is
01:47
positioned between the 4 and 5 o’clock
01:49
mark stores enough energy to activate a
01:51
pair of LEDs that emit a blue glow
01:54
strong enough to be able to tell time in
01:56
the dark
01:56
owning an hyt metropolis will set you

02:14
the astronaut or beyond has for
02:16
satellite arms hypnotically rotating
02:18
around the dial one of the four is the

time indicator which rotates around the
02:22
circumference of the dial every 20
02:23
minutes the second satellite features
02:25
the tobe on spinning consistently within
02:27
its cage every minute while the third
02:29
satellite hosts a hand-painted globe
02:31
finally the fourth satellite is where we
02:33
see a glistening rotating diamond to
02:35
emulate the vast feeling of space the
02:37
backdrop of the dial is fashioned from a
02:39
venturi speckled with countless

the opus collection from famed jeweler
03:04
and watchmaker Harry Winston is where
03:06
the brand flexes its watchmaking mastery
03:08
the 11th edition of the series the Opus
03:11
11 was created by Dennis G gray who was
03:14
guided by the concept of time explosion
03:16
an elaborate puzzle of pieces spins
03:18
around to reveal the hour of the day at
03:20
the center of the main dial while the
03:22
minutes are indicated via two discs on a
03:24
smaller sub dial attached on the side
03:26
the Opus 11 gives the illusion of the
03:28
pieces breaking apart with each turn of
03:30
the hour only for them to come back
03:32
together again incredibly the time only
03:35
watch is powered by a movement that is
03:37
composed of 566 parts with each movement

having taken about five weeks to
03:42
assemble

04:44
the extreme concept line from Christoph
04:47
clairee focuses on exceedingly complex
04:49
and technical watches normally magnetic
04:52
fields affect watches similarly to the
04:54
way kryptonite affects Superman creating
04:56
havoc to watch movements precision and
04:58
reliability amazingly however with the
05:01
extreme one timepiece magnets are used
05:03
to indicate the time without affecting
05:05
the movement the magnets control two
05:07
small steel balls that travel up and
05:09
down the tubes positioned on the sides
05:11
of the cases signifying the hours and
05:13
minutes the tubes are nicely accented
05:15
with super-luminova strips to allow for
05:17
telling the time in the dark this
05:19
unorthodox watch is finished off with a
05:21
flying tour bein inclined at 30 degrees
05:23
only eight models of the extreme one
05:25
were ever produced another creation from
05:32
Christoph Flair a the Margaux is on the
05:34
other side of the spectrum from the
05:35
extreme masculine to the wonderfully
05:37
feminine the manufacturers first lady’s
05:40
watch complication the Margaux helps to
05:42
answer the question he loves me he loves
05:44
me not pressing the pusher at 2 o’clock
05:47
activates the central flower where
05:49
petals fall away and the answers appear
05:50
in French the universal language of love
05:53
a little a lot passionately madly or not
05:57
at all responds the watch the delicate
05:59
timepiece even sends out a sweet chime
06:01
to accompany the animation the floral
06:03
motif continues on the back of the case
06:05
with a triangular precious stones
06:07
accenting an elaborate blossom a
06:09
celebration of romance the whimsical
06:12
Margot is offered in either red or white
06:14
gold and is exquisitely embellished with
06:16
mother-of-pearl and diamonds since their
06:25
inception music boxes have fascinated us
06:28
with their beauty charm and entrancing
06:30
sounds with the intricacies of their
06:32
inner workings it almost stands to
06:34
reason that legendary swiss masters of
