          $5000+ and the PR indicator is fake. I’m still laughing. And why $3500 is ok just because someone threw up that figure (erroneously, I might add), is beyond me. There’s a sucker born every minute, I guess.

The Chinese are doing this to make money at the end of the day. If we can get all single tourby's for $700 I dont see why this cant sell for $1500 or less.

            In business school its always better to sell 100,000 x items at $500 profit each then to sell 1000 x items at $2000 profit each.

            Because you're not considering the costs that go into R&D to develop something new like this. If you saw my post from yesterday where I disassembled a Tourbillon rep, you'd see they're not nearly as complex as people make them out to be. It's certainly not a $1500 movement. But these things sell in much lower volume than other reps. I imagine it's even more so the case for this new double tourby. Even at 1500 I wouldn't buy one of these because I simply don't like the look of the watch/dial itself. I imagine that's probably going to be the case for a lot of people. If it was something that really grabbed my attention, I'd probably even consider the $5k price tag.
            Reps: IWC Portuguese Mystere Tourbillon, PAM441 Ceramica, Noob v5 Submariner, AP ROO Panda w/ SS bracelet
            Gens: Omega Speedmaster Professional, Breitling Navitimer Twin Sixty 2, IWC Portuguese Rattrapante, 1940s Universal Geneve Tri-Compax, Jaeger LeCoultre Steel Reverso DuoFace, JLC Rose Gold Reverso DuoFace


              Does the $5k price tag include a real croc strap? In any case, I'm going to hold off for a triple tourbillon rep. It'll be 50% better.


                What the..


                  Seems like the other case/dial (rose gold) version has been released as well..


                    omg!!!!!! is that price confirmed ???? still holding out hope


                      Well they certainly made a very good watch there. The craftsmanship that has gone into this is nothing short of incredible. I for one will be keeping an eye on the development of the RD brand though the price if this model needs to come down a lot.

                      I’m hoping that with the development that has gone into the double tourbillon Hommage, that the makers can come up with an Excalibur Spider skeleton. I was lucky enough to try on a gen at a boutique, only 88 pieces made....

                          Want to sell?


                            If someone can answer - what's the point of the arrows on the tourbillons? Certainly not to tell seconds in two different time zones?


                              Torby movements rotate 360° every minute. The arrows effectively are second counters to show that the thing is working as intended.


                                Shame they put a fake PR on the back. Take the replica brand away, take the fake PR away, and you have a legit watch here. As is however, it's exactly what we are used to. A very flawed over priced replica.
