Luxury Watches: Peter Speake-Marin, the founder of The Watch Workshop, is an extraordinary horologist who produces collectible, limited-edition Swiss-manufactured wristwatches that fit into the modern- and classical era of timepieces perfunctorily. Aside from the entire collection's subtly classy appearance and meticulous tooling, there is a loftiness of elevated self-worth to its wearers that is as desirable as these watches are attainable. It is a limited feeling reserved only for collectors of Speake-Marin's omnipotent jeweled masterpieces.

The Vintage Tourbillon is a limited edition consisting of two distinct renderings with a limited run of only 10 each. There are 10 with platinum cases and 10 with cases of red gold. The diameter of the case is 38 mm and its thickness is 13.84 mm. The elements include a minute tourbillon case, diamonds set into the toubillon bridges; gold chatons, which are held in place by three screws; a tourbillon cage pivoting between two pivots; hand-polished angling on bridges; a balance with timing screws; blued steel screws on the movement bridges; polished white screws on the tourbillon cage and bridge; blued steel hands; and an 18ct gold dial. There also is a 110-hour power reserve and a warning indicator showing the last 24 hours of reserved power.

If unique luxury, quintessential style and flawless functionality are vital components of your essence, Speake-Marin's vaulted Piccadilly collection merits a moment of your precious time. For those entrenched in scientific vernacular, "tourbillon" is an acceptable variant of "tourbillion." (A Luxé mind is a terrible thing to waste.)
