Vacheron Constantin Tour de l’Ile

The world's most complicated wristwatch


The Vacheron Constantin Tour de l’Ile wristwatch also became the world’s most expensive watch. The world’s most complicated double-face watch, produced in a limited edition of 7. Tour de l’Ile is the most complicated watch made, with a totally original combination of horological complications and astronomical indications composing a list of sixteen different points including a minute repeater, sunset time, perpetual calendar, second time zone, a tourbillon device, and the equation of time and the representation of the night sky. It took the Vacheron Constantin design-engineers and the watchmakers over 10,000 hours of research and development to create this sheer masterpiece of horological technique. Its name refers to one of the historical sites of the venerable company, situated next to the current Maison Vacheron Constantin on the Quai de l’Ile. The gold case with its hand-soldered lugs, which maintains beautiful and harmonious size in spite of its substantial content, is now eminent by a symmetrical double protrusion on either side of the bezel.

Nice video on the watch! Amazing!
