Touted as the “world’s most complex watch”, this Jaeger LeCoultre creation comes with presentation like no other.

Only 30 sets of this three-watch-safe combination will be released, with the other two watch models being a Jaeger Le Coultre Gyrotourbillon and a Reverso a Tryptique.

Lit cubbyholes within the safe highlight the three featured watches while a further eight watch winders surround the cases.

Jaeger LeCoultre also includes a variety of books, observation equipment and watch tools. There is also generous space within the presentation safe for a variety of other personal items to be stored.

Each safe will be made by Doettling, the German luxury safe company, famous for its impressive and extravagant safes.

2010 will see the delivery of the first of the 30 sets, while the production run will cease in 2014.

The Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie is stunning with its 18 karat white-gold case measuring 15mm thick and 44mm wide.

Within hides a mechanical Calibre 182 movement with over 1,300 parts. Among the watch’s 26 complications are the sonnerie functions including the Westminster chimes, grande and petit sonnerie, minute repeater, a silent mode, flying tourbillon, perpetual calendar with a retrograde day, date, and month indicator as well as a leap year indicator.

Lit cubbyholes highlight the three featured watches while a further eight watch winders surround them.
