Deep Space Tourbillon on the wrist - Not the Last Star Trek Watch?  0 Comments


Professor Massimiliano Landi was at the small private dinner with Vianney Halter who tried on the watch and allowed me to capture him with it. For a 46mm watch, it look surprisingly well proportioned on his average sized wrist. The Deep Space Tourbillon however is a very tall watch due to the huge convex crystal. One needs to be extra careful with it as I suspect the cost of replacing the crystal could be prohibitive. 

The other known watch that has similar tall convex crystal is the MB&F Legacy Machine 1. Both are completely different watches in terms of design philosophy and intended market. 

I find it curious that MB&F is a brand that has been described by its founder as having been strongly influenced by Star Trek design concepts as was Vianney's Deep Space Tourbillon. Gene Roddenberry's legacy to entertainment and science fiction continues to grow with new generation of followers (with the re-release of the franchise of the original series in new time frame in the movie cinemas). Now, manifested in high horology with more than one revered brand. I cannot wait to see how other models are being conceived with Star Trek influence.

I am sure Gene Roddenberry would approve.
