    I saw one in the wild recently and was impressed given that many of these cost as much as a luxury vehicle. Any one out there care to share a photo or two of theirs?

    If you're gonna overpay, it better be Cartier.

    Very nice looking. Completely unnecessary to have these days but who cares when you collect watches. What’s the deal with getting something like that serviced. I would imagine it’s costly and not something every watch maker can do.

    Completely unnecessary, but so deliciously unnecessary.

    I'd go for Journes earlier Tourbillons.

    Just saw a video describing this Souverain.
    Although I'm not too keen on the esthetics of the dial (too many colors, materials and shapes to my taste), it's still a very impressive watch and has everything but the kitchen sink: remontoire, dead-beat seconds, tourbillon, power indicator, fine finishing, elegant case and manageable size.

    my all time favorite tourbillon

    came close a few times and the prices now have gone parabolic

    to me 38mm journe tourby is the all time top

    I had this platinum JLC tourbillon a few years ago, figured I should own at least one in my lifetime. Beautiful watch but it was kind of boring so I sold it. No desire to own another, poor value in my estimation.

    You don’t have to overpay.........
    It is a great test watch. I am bored by the tourbillion, it is nice no doubt but the excitement wears off. I do not feel the need to invest in a Swiss made one

    You're right, Journe prices for early brass stuff has all gone nuts, but currently at the top is the Resonance, after the early one went for 250k at auction. This doesn't make sense to me as the Tourbillon was the flagship of the era and should be on top.
