The Cabestan's Nostromo Watch

Check out this unique Cabestan Nostromo watch which is motivated by the ship from the Alien movie and used the movement that made the Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical well-known. The Cabestan Nostromo is constructed mainly from titanium and the case is coated with a superluminova phosphorescent paint which reveals a subtle yellow green light that flows around the wheel bridges, drums and drive shafts when in lowlight.

The open design of the watch allows for the viewing of the vertical mechanics from both the front and the back, including the drive shaft which is used to transmit the required energy to power the movements.

Yet this watch and its amazing and unique design don’t come cheap. If you’re really fascinated, it’s available for 150,000 Swiss Francs or around $141,400.
