Luxury watchmaker Wilbur has announced the launch of its new flagship model called the 'LEO JW1,' which features a state-of-the-art industrial design.
Nicknamed the 'Wilbur Engine One,' the luxurious new timepiece comes with an automatic jump-hour that is supported by the brand's signature "space frame." This unique frame is able to reduce vibrations while giving the impression that the watch's movement is floating in the air.
The watch's sophisticated movement was designed and assembled in Switzerland and works to power a series of jump-hour discs, which are completely visible to the wearer thanks to the unit's sapphire glass lens. meanwhile, housing this intricate, one-of-a-kind movement is a 48.5mm titanium case.
The LEO JW1 is now available to purchase directly through Wilbur. However, it is being limited to a total of 100 pieces, meaning those interested will have to act fast if they'd like secure one of these ultra-opulent timepieces.
