ADVENT CALENDAR 2016: December 24 – Franck Muller Thunderbolt Tourbillon

Silent night, holy night, all is calm, apart from the reassuring tick of your Franck Muller Thunderbolt Tourbillon. And let’s not for a minute – or five seconds to be more accurate – mistake the forest for the Christmas trees here, the real star inside this gold curvex case is the tourbillon. When you’re playing at this level, tourbillons are par for the course, but Franck Muller’s master watchmaker Pierre-Michel Golay has taken the Thunderbolt Tourbillon to the next level. Most tourbillons make a full revolution every 60 seconds – this one does it in five, not only making it the fastest tourbillon in the world, but also one of the most mesmerising. If Santa had a stretch target, this would be it. Good luck mate!

Who should you buy this for:Someone who has been very, very, very good.

What’s the damage: If you have to ask…. Under $400k
