A Retro-Futuristic Watch Torn From the Pages of Science Fiction

Supposedly inspired and named after the space station featured in the Star Trek series Deep Space Nine, Vianney Halter's Deep Space Tourbillon watch took several years to design and build. But from the looks of it, that number could be closer to half a century since the watch looks like it was based on designs from the science fiction of yesteryear.

The watch's most striking feature is a spinning triple axis tourbillon that almost appears to float beneath a bulbous crystal dome as if it was set adrift in space. But it's securely tied into the Deep Space Tourbillon, powering the arching hour and minute hands that curve up from the side of its face.

Watch enthusiasts with a penchant for sci-fi better be ready to pay up, though. The Deep Space Tourbillon comes with a $192,000 price tag, but unfortunately it's apparently already been sold to a collector in China. Guess you'll just have to wait for the Voyager edition.
