One of the most complex vertical linear displays ever constructed, the watch boasts of 1080 components and took three years to develop. The movement of the watch is dubbed the HW80 caliber and takes 240 hours to assemble. The tourbillon beats at a fast rate of 4Hz and it has a balance wheel made out of titanium and a balance spring made out of a special alloy called PE4000. Only available in 18k rose gold, the Hysek Colossal Grande Complication measures 44mm wide, 57mm lug to lug, and is 18mm thick. Instead of a circular display using flat gears, the Colossal features roller-based numeric linear displays that use vertical gears, and unlike other watches of similar kind, it displays time in the 24-hour format.

Underneath the time display, there’s a large three-dimensional moon that also serves as the moon phase indicator. To the left of the moon phase indicator is a dual-timezone indicator, and to the right is the leap year indicator for the linear perpetual calendar below at 6 o’clock. A power reserve indicator can be read off the smaller sapphire window on the right side of the case. The Hysek Colossal Grande Complication is limited to just 8 pieces, and although the price has not been revealed yet, but the manufacturer confirms that it will be under $700,000.
