Watchstar 1000m Purple Aqua Lung One Of A Kind

This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity on the rose purple Watchstar Aqualung. THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD that is rose with purple. This is a collector’s dream; the only example known to exist! It’s important to note that this model was never actually built for the public in any quantity and is immediately collectable. The working name was “Aqua Lung” during prototype phase. 47mm case of 316L steel, screw down crown and pushers with a unidirectional rotating bezel crafted in aluminum and inset with Super Luminova. All lume on the dial textured dial is also Super Luminova. A very heavy hardened domed AR treated mineral crystal completes the enclosure, but this is where the unusual science comes in. This watch was certified to 1000 METERS WATER RESISTANCE, and to assure that this would survive in an actual 1000 M ocean situation, the case is filled with an oil to counteract the extreme external pressure! Note in the reverse view that this construction requires a separate battery chamber; the actual case is never compromised. The Miyota OS21 was further modified to provide the additional torque to move the hands through the fluid. A bubble was deliberately allowed to illustrate the reaction to angle and movement. Presented on high grade 22mm silicon rubber strap fitting a 9” wrist, the original list was set at 2995.00. AGAIN, THIS WAS NEVER PUT INTO PRODUCTION AND TO OUR KNOWLEDGE THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE IN THE WORLD. Own this one of a kind for only 599.00, shipping included!

Watchstar 1000m Aqua Lung One Of A Kind

This is a collector’s dream; not just a #1 or triple zero; this is the only example known to exist! There’s rumored to be another color (green, and quantity not confirmed, if it was actually built) but per our factory direct relationship we can confirm that to the best of our research this is the only blue/rose that was ever built. It’s important to note that this model was never actually built for the public in any quantity and is immediately collectable. The working name was “Aqua Lung” during prototype phase. 47mm case of 316L steel, screw down crown and pushers with a unidirectional rotating bezel crafted in aluminum and inset with Super Luminova. All lume on the dial textured dial is also Super Luminova. A very heavy hardened domed AR treated mineral crystal completes the enclosure, but this is where the unusual science comes in.

XOSkeleton Gen II Superlative Star Dual Dial/Movement Limited Edition Automatic

This is another one-off from the vaults of XOSkeleton! A build for the internal team that demonstrated the two tone idea on 8.5” bracelet, a concept ultimately never released to the public. This is the Gen II 52mm Superlative Star, which means the case is built of 904L steel (what Rolex uses). This piece features the same perfect created rubies used in the long sold out tourbillon, circa 2008. Numbered limited edition of 888, this piece is NOT preowned. Applied markers and luminous hands are layered in 18k gold beneath multi layer anti glare treated sapphire crystal. The movement is a Swiss quartz MOON PHASE, NOT AN AM/PM INDICATOR! And this gets better; in this deal you’ll get a SECOND DIAL (white) with a SECOND SWISS MOON PHASE MOVEMENT (change out is up to you), included! Plus you’ll be upgraded into the white lacquer luxury packaging. Finished work tested to 10 ATM water resistance. Without the second dial/movement this would have released with an msrp in the range of $1995.00. This exclusive package goes to one astute collector for just $599.99, shipping included!

XOSkeleton “Triple Zero” Superlative Star One Of A Kind Generation 2.5 Automatic

We’ve just completed a call with the current XOSkeleton owner and they’ve agreed to give our Talk About Watches collectors an opportunity at one-of-a-kind pieces. This one is a prototype from Generation 2.5. Note the perfectly lab created blue sapphires. These are the same ones that were used in the most sought after XOSkeleton tourbillon of all time. The 50mm case is made of 904L stainless steel (the “Rolex steel”). The movement is an automatic 21 jewel ST 1188 with a date display and a custom rotor. The crystal is anti-reflective treated sapphire, across a matte black dial with applied markers and decorated skeleton hands. Note the 000/400 limited edition; this was built for internal release only. We know of no other example in existence! It was slated to list for $1995.00. Talk About Watches is authorized to release the only one known to exist for $399.99  shipping included!

XOSkeleton “Triple Zero” Superlative Star One Of A Kind Automatic

This is, and we quote XO Skeleton directly here, “an ultra rare Superlative Star automatic that was never released”. To our knowledge this is the only one available in the world. Note the “000/400; this was an internal prototype! Tim Temple (co-founder of Talk About Watches) really knows the XOSkeleton brand well and he’s never encountered this particular build. This is the 50mm Generation II automatic but with the addition of semi-skeletonized dial. Sapphire crystal and the case is crafted in 904L steel (the “Rolex Steel”). The suspending stones are perfect lab created white sapphire! This is an absolute must for any XOSkeleton collector and/or those collecting the genuinely rare opportunities. It would have listed for $1999.00. We are authorized to release this one at just $599.99, shipping included. Congratulations to the collector who acquires this one!
