I've written about this watch in the past, never really seemed it would be produced - but lo and behold, it has been realized. Jean-François Ruchonnet of the DMC Group, the man responsible for the phenomenal belt-driven Tag Heuer V4 (which by the way, is also now a reality->Link) has taken Vianney Halter's vision to an official and public reality. Being sold in a variety of styles, seen at the official Cabestan website-->Link, you could buy one for between $275,000 and $400,000 (approx) but you'd be out of luck, all models for 2007 have sold out. And with plans for four watches a month in 2008, you might wanna rob that bank you always had your eye on...You know, the one with the sleepy security guard.
Available in titanium, yellow gold and rose gold

As well as the all black titanium below
And with the demand for bling versions of everything, yo, the encrusted diamond Cabestan
Ah, the winch driven chain-fusee movements do move me!
