This is the world’s first singing bird automaton wrist watch. It features piston-driven bellows which enable the bird to move: the wings go up and down and the head rotates. A sapphire dial allows a view into the unique gear train and components. The case measures 47 mm. Only 28 pieces will be made at a price of approximately half a million dollars a piece.
