Hi, I'm Tim. Welcome to Watch One and thanks for logging on today. I've got a real treat for you. Yes, it's available for immediate purchase and delivery on our website, WatchYouWant.com, but on our YouTube channel, WatchYouOnInk, I'm ready to debut our first ever encounter with the Halter Barnes Antica, better known as the Vianney Halter Antica. This model, approximately 40 millimeters in diameter, 18 karat rose gold, is one of two watches that I believe represent the birth of the modern era of horology. On the watchmaking and engineering side, it was the 1986 to 1991 Autonomia PGA Tourbillion, one of the first serially produced tourbillon wristwatches ever. But on the aesthetic side, the watch that changed our idea of what a luxury watch, even an ultra-daguan watch, could look like was the 1998 to present Halter Barnes later Vianney Halter Antica. The watch that you see here now is a rare sight, even for me, and I deal with top-of-the-market luxury watches on a daily basis. This is the first one I've ever seen, much less held in my hand. But what I found in most online photography of these watches is a lack of context. Watches like this are such rock stars that they're rarely photographed with anything to give a frame of reference.

It's not an overwhelming mechanical monstrosity. While steampunk is the operative term (and I'll get to a little bit more of that in a moment), it's certainly not built in the proportions of a locomotive or traction engine from the 19th century. Really, it's...
