The Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin recently announced a new watch with a remarkable mechanical movement with 23 complications (above and below).

It took five years to develop: only one exists.

The mechanism contains 514 components and is 8.7mm thick.

In addition to such matters as the perpetual date, the device is geared to track, in part: the Earth's elliptical orbit, solar time, the zodiac, solstices and equinoxes, tide levels, the position of the sun, and the night sky in the Northern Hemisphere.

Dubbed Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600, it is encased in 18 karat white gold, and can be had for $1 million.
