Michel Jordi Twins

The Michel Jordi Twins watch is two watches in one. The watches sit on top of each other, the top being a hand-winding movement with a 42 hour power reserve and the bottom one is a chronograph with a second time zone indicator. The outer dial on the bottom is carved out of rock from the Swiss Alps. The double watch comes in either rose gold or white gold and comes in a limited edition of 99. This watch is definitely designed to attract attention and has an excellent fidget factor (you could slides this thing back and forth during meetings all afternoon). The upper dial has a much more classic feel while the bottom dial has the more striking design. Movement: Upper case Calibre MJ 1948.01.
