Cabestan watch: A unique new look at time

cabestan1_1.jpg

It’s no secret that we here are fans of finely made watches. The Cabestan design from Vianney Halter and Jean-Fran §ois Ruchonnet is not yet being produced for sale, but makes us watch fans drool at its unique new look at watch design. The pictures you see are a rare few of the Cabestan that exist, with only a few prototypes existing in the whole world.

The beautiful rolling power displays are absolutely astounding. The displays are controlled through chain links and fusee wound by a winch. The mechanical design and architecture of the Cabestan is enough to make any watch fanatic weak in the knees. A truly beautiful device we hope to see in production someday.
