    The ultimate mechanical watch - for less
    From: Noell Wilson
    Date: 2016 Mar 4, 10:46 -0800

    In the 4 March NYT men's style is a Carrera Heuer - 02T watch for the bargain price of $15,950. It has a Tourbillion mechanism which places the escapement, balance spring, and blance wheel inside a cage which is free to rotate and to better isolate them from "the effects of gravity". This is an 18th century development that normally would only be in $30,000 to $815,000 watches - thus the bargain.

    "It is the ultimate complication - - - for this slight improvement in accuracy."

    Just in case someone was waiting for one:
