The Weird And The Wonderful: 12 Of The Most Wacky Watches



The world of watches is full of some incredible timepieces. Outside of the usual suspects, what lies before you is an abundance of exciting, adventurous, utterly random, nonsensical and outrageous watches. But what all of these weird, wacky and wonderful pieces have in common is one thing: pure brilliance.


Here are 12 of the world's most weird, wacky and wonderful watches.



Devon Tread 1 Version F



Complete with interwoven time belts that display hours, minutes and seconds, the Devon Tread 1 Version F is just about as out there as it gets for conventional time telling.



Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Chronometer



The Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Chronometer is a piece reminiscent of the maison's dress-watch collection that is now discontinued. A conservative take on the other wordly.



Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron



With an exposed movement that draws inspiration from the powerhouse that is the Bugatti Chiron's engine, the aptly named Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron is a marvel of modern horology and innovation.



Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino Roulette



Designed to look and work like a roulette table, the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino Roulette is a dizzying display of technique.



Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon



The extensive openworking of the Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon leaves little to the imagination, with this obscure and highly creative timepiece really hammering home the notion of less being more.



Girard-Perregaux Planetarium Tri-Axial Earth To Sky Edition



From Girard-Perregaux we have the immense Planetarium Tri-Axial Earth To Sky Edition, an ode to the maison's creativity and expertise to actually execute a horological feat of this magnitude.



Ulysse Nardin Marine Mega Yacht



The Ulysse Nardin Marine Mega Yacht is another weird, wacky and wonderful piece that is a fitting tribute to the watchmaker's mastery of the weird.



Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Yellow Neon Saxem



Perhaps one of the newest pieces on this list, the Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Yellow Neon Saxem is an exercise of chronometrical performance and the use of avant garde materials.



Girard-Perregaux Neo-Tourbillon Three Bridges Skeleton



A beautifully wacky proposition, the Girard-Perregaux Neo-Tourbillon With Three Bridges Skeleton is a feast for the senses.



Ulysse Nardin Tourbillon Free Wheel



With its almost random nature, the Ulysse Nardin Tourbillon Free Wheel has a lot going in what might seem like complete randomness, but in reality this weird watch is a well thought out, well oiled machine.



Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon Carbon Sky Blue



The weird, wacky and thoroughly wonderful Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon Carbon Sky Blue is a piece that sits right in the middle of a very fun but very serious timepiece.



Ulysse Nardin Freak Vision



The Ulysse Nardin Freak Vision perhaps best represents the tenets of a bona fide weird, wacky and wonderful watch, paving the way for many a watchmaker to open the world of the odd for themselves.
