The Timekeeper

There are only 188 pieces of the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition watch from Carl F Bucherer. It has an 18-karat rose gold case, a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on sides, a caseback with sapphire crystal and a silver dial. The hand stitched strap is made from Louisiana alligator leather, and like all Tourbillon watches, this one, too, corrects gravity-caused inaccuracies.
