“Complication” usually means something negative, but when we’re talking about timepieces it’s a symbol of quality, outstanding design and maybe luxury. Top watches no longer show hours, minutes and seconds only. It’s the ultra-complication that can turn them famous.


Astronomical displays, minute repeaters that chime the hours and minutes, perpetual calendars and tourbillon escapements are hard-to-produce complications that make the luxury trend we’re talking. So, Luxury Safes made a Top 10 list you will be curious about, but please be caution or you’ll fall in a “complicated” infatuation if you waste too much time admiring these pieces.
