While this part of the world may be synonymous with oil derricks drills, watches, however, are not. Well, at least not until Louis Moinet decided to break new ground in the world of horology and design the world’s first watch that combines a tourbillon with a miniature working ‘oil derrick’. While an oil derrick mechanism is designed with the practicalities of drilling through rock and oil-rich grounds in mind, the Derrick Toubillon by Louis Moinet is made in white gold, with just 30 pieces being made available. The unique contraption, which is visible across the large, 47mm petroleum blue (of course) dial, is in constant motion, completing its cycle every 15 seconds. The rocking lever is made entirely of brushed aluminium, which when hand-wound, beats at a cadence of 21,600 vibrations per hour. But what makes this timepiece really stand out is the transparent case-base, where you can see the watch’s ‘octopus’ spring playing three roles by acting as a pull-out piece spring, lever spring and click spring. While it won’t help you gather any rare earth minerals, this watch is presented in an 18 carat white gold case that houses 59 parts, making it just as precious.
