Everyone’s favorite weirdly Russian/Eastern European watch brand, Poljot, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the Alexander the Great Glass Tourbillon, a watch that is definitely a departure from Poljot’s big pilot watches.

The Poljot watch features a real tourbillon and a glass face, two features that are usually found in much more expensive watches. From the release:

The beauty of the movement, its curved skeletonized bridges and tourbillon cage are fully visible through the sapphire crystal dial. The back of the watch also has transparent glass and allows a wonderful view of the back of the skeletonized movement.

On the 3h position, there is a day & night function. When the sun appears fully in a small round window, it means noon time, when the moon appears fully in this position, it means midnight time. At the 9 o’clock position is the GMT function. By turning the crown counterclockwise, it is possible to set the second time zone to 24h mode. The classic stainless steel case, IP rose gold plated, is water resistant up to 5 atm.

Now get this: this watch is limited to 30 pieces and costs 3030 Euro. That’s right: a custom tourbillon for less than a price of a used Camry. You can pick this beast up here and it looks like its shipping soon. Honestly, I’m very impressed.
