Girard-Perregaux’s Opera Three chronograph plays Tchaikovsky and Mozart tunes for every changing hour

After Girard-Perregaux gave the world amazing watches like the Opera one and the Opera Three (which is touted to be on of the most expensive watches) they have now come up with a new variant of the Opera three. This one comes in a small music box that has a keyboard with 20 blades which is can be played through a spinning drum that has 150 hand-mounted pins. What that means is that every time the watch completes an hour, the watch will play Tchaikovsky or Mozart, instead if annoying beeps. A collector’s item, the watch saw first light in 2002 and comes with a platinum case and alligator skin strap. It was last priced at $532,000, making it the third most expensive watch in the world!
