Wrong Turn

After last year's Tourbillon Frenzy at Basel/Geneva it's starting to look suspiciously similar for this year. More Tourbillons at astronomic prices that I doubt anybody buys for less than 50% discount. There are some exception though that make this complication interesting and worth having. It seem that manufacturers keep insisting in producing complications that do not appeal to the general public, because they are either to expensive or they are just not really relevant. Between a Tourbillon and a Perpetual complication I would take the Perpetual 100 times over...

Genta shoved some promise last year with the CuatroRetro (too bad they chose the least interesting version of the two color combinations to be produced).

Now they present this horror! Tacky in every aspect and completely unreadable.

This watch looks like a roulette table, it would look good at the New Winn Hotel in Las Vegas, white linen suit, hair slick back with a superbowl ring betting $1000 black jack hands.
