This is one crazy concept watch. For starters, this Germain Baillot Concept Watch is too humongous for the most average built men out there. But either way, this fantastic special edition is worthy to be praised by the world. Take a look at this Germain Baillot’s Aeronautics Inspired Timepiece!
Germain Baillot is no stranger to concept authentic watches, his previous theories include a Dior Avenue Montaigne and a Chanel No. 8. However, this new fantasy creation is straight out of this world or at least up in the sky with all the jet engine and fuselage designs Baillot incorporated into it.
The watch, designed with frequent jet-setter in mind features a 24-hour GMT world clock. To get everything going, it comes equipped with two complications: a vertical tourbillon and a 24-hour GMT world timer.
The aeronautics-inspired design starts things off with its long tube-shaped case with a domed sapphire crystal cover. Below the dome, three rectangles on another tube display the time and the corresponding city.

Time is set with the jet engine-inspired crown at 3 o’clock, unlike other crowns, which are generally small, this one is huge, and has a lot of legroom to house the vertical tourbillon.
Located at 9 o’clock is an exact replica of the crown at three o’clock. This one helps rotate the world time cylinder, which indicates UTC time of the corresponding city. There is one main difference between other “world timers” and this – on other GMT watches world timer means displaying local hour as well, but here it shows only the UTC time.
To make things comfortable for the wearer, he designed a pair of sharply downward-curved lugs and fitted it with a matching integrated rubber strap.
If Germain Baillot Concept Watch ever goes from concept to reality, this would cost at least a quarter-of-a-million dollars.
