Steampunk "gothic pirate spaceship" watch

Watchismo's got some exclusive photos of the DeWitt Concept No. 1, a €400,000 watch that's like a cross between an AT-AT walker and a steampunk war-zeppelin control-center.

Selling for 400,000 Euros at the OnlyWatch auction before it had been shown to anyone, the DeWitt Concept No.1 was a beast to behold last week at Baselworld. Devoloped with French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, this gothic pirate spaceship of a watch is taking the steampunk oeuvre to new heights with its expanding riveted case, flying tourbillon, five barrels and a 21 day power reserve.


  1. I don’t mean to be nitpicky, but if it’s 400,000 euros, wouldn’t that be US$600,000 or so?

  2. That’s what a Power Ranger’s morpher would look like in real life…

    Too bad it costs more than my house. By a lot.

  3. For that much money, the thing had better include a directional pointer to my one true love.

  4. this reminds me, where do we go for all our war-zeppelin needs? I needs me a fleet of war-zeppelins.

  5. Is it just the picture or is that an awfully HUGE watch?

    It looks like it would take up most of your forearm.

  6. When it comes to “steampunk”, I’d be a LOT more impressed if the objects actually worked using “steampunk” technology.

    Unlike this pricey watch, most of them seem to be just everyday objects slapped together and sprayed with bronze paint.

  7. then lets hear a design proposal.

    For instance: one of those old table top working steam plant models but with generator and circuitry to run a laptop.
