Roberto Cavalli Prototype Tourbillon Brass Laiton 47mm Manual Winding Swiss 2013Roberto Cavalli
For auction is a 2013 Roberto Cavalli (by Franck Muller) Prototype Tourbillon in brass (laiton) 47mm manual winding. This was a watch introduced in 2013 when Franck Muller had some higher end aspirations for the Roberto Cavalli brand. This watch was what was made in the run up to presenting these at the watch shows in that year; laiton (brass) cases are what brands will mock up prototype cases in. The watch was intended to be a 140k plus retail in 18k and diamonds. The movement is very similar to a Habring 3D tourb from the early 2000's; it's a tourbillon built onto a base Unitas movement. Truly something never to be seen on anyone else's wrist as it is a prototype, but is also priced as the least expensive Swiss tourbillon to be found anywhere. Something very cool.
